Yummy Things

Nefarious and I made marzipan today. It's drying out a little right now; we'll see if the mix I used will be usable or not… I'd like to get it so it's sort of like playdough that you can eat (and actually tastes good) but this one may be too sticky — this is half-and-half ground almonds and icing sugar, and then a bit of coconut, and egg white (one per cup of almonds), as well as a bit of salt and vanilla, and food coloring. I was going to make some with cocoa but didn't bother this time.

Either way, it tastes good. For supper I made a typical rice and veggie meal with sort of a pad thai type flavoring. I could eat these meals endlessly… and I do!

Other than that I started putting together a quickie painting that I'm doing on “commission” (not paid — it's a gift for my nephew) of a Halloween scene — a big scary tree, some sort of creature dressed as a mushroom, bats, a nest in the tree, a squirrel, the moon, and pumpkins and a gourd on the ground.

It's starting to get cold here… almost time to start up winter swimming again!

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
