It was raining today and I was outside, and took a few pictures... I love lilacs.  <3  They're probably one my favorite flower scents, even if they make me sneeze like a mad person.  I'd love to have them at my wedding...someday.  <3

In the garden~ )

Let me tell you of the times in which kitchen experiences are greatly impacted by good equipment.

(I am in love with my new knife.)

(My tiny, decrepit food processor makes life difficult.)

(My stand mixer is my right hand...I also need a new wire whip attachment because I accidentally bent mine to smithereens on fridge-hard butter. *puts on dunce hat*)

...Right. Brownies. Where was I.

Beans? In what? )

Siwon is exceedingly proud of himself... He just won himself back his spot as default icon. XD

I had to literally hide the bread on top of the microwave to keep someone from cutting into it while piping hot. I explain to him again and again that cutting into the bread is releasing all the moisture, fweee, into the air, but someone can't resist the smell of hot yeasty bread. Sigh. ...And of course then I have to go get a piece, because it's required. Haha. I really like the crumb I'm getting on this bread. It's very lovely and slice-able despite the fact that I'm using all whole white wheat flour. I think I want to do a mix of 2/3 whole white with 1/3 regular whole wheat next time, just to see what kind of flavor it gives it. And you can make sandwiches with it without feeling like your teeth are trying to saw through slabs of petrified cardboard. _-_ Finally got pics up below~

Cut for writing blather, pictures... food, swag, and... Batduck~ )

I think I had a point to this post beyond going "behold, cake" but I can't decide what it was. I am eating cake with my chai latte remnants, vegetating, banging a metal pipe on the HenHae and getting lovely echoes... But better echoes than me moaning about how terrible smutty scenes are to write and that it will only make me dislike this other fic more than I do because... because they always do. Not moaning any more than I just did, anyway.

On the job front... I got up 30 minutes too early this morning, and it didn't matter. Not happening again. It's so... frustrating. I just want to get started and no one wants to get going. I'm working and it's not going anywhere.

So anyway. Have some terribly fuzzy pictures. Apparently I am fail at wielding the camera.

Cake? )

OH, the things you never anticipate learning about your computer.

I am a computer voice speaking Korean names...Ki-bum? )

Making shepherd's pie tomorrow... Mmm.

Also, cake! )

Hello from Los Angeles!

So far we've had a good time... No awesome celebrity spotting, but still. :P We'll spot them on stage tonight if nothing else.

We got our first taste of Disney last night, as kind of a miracle, and got to go on some rides... Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, the Indiana Jones Adventure... Indiana Jones was amazing. *_* Good thing they give you seat belts. And Pirates... Got showered. My bag and sleeve were wet. ;_; But good times. More Disney tomorrow.

Of course yesterday was exhausting. And I'm still half asleep, lol. Still, have a pic I took out the airplane window yesterday. <3 (And no one mentioned the pics in the last post didn't work. Sigh. So dumb, me.)

ETA: I lied. I just saw one of SNSD. From 30 feet. Random!
coley_merrin: (Chef in ze Kitchen)
I said I would! And I'm ignoring reality and my aching... -_- Anyway. Pics of some of, though not all, my baking/cooking projects the last few weeks. :)

And my redecorated Super Junior wall. One of them. _-_

The oven temp is slightly wonky... )
