Once upon a time, my sister Laree became part of a test kitchen for some books. I am now reading said books. I think maybe my life is now complete. I have found my new favorite genre of books.
Novels with recipes. Really. What more could a girl ask for? Ok, so the current books I'm reading are mystery novels, and the heroin is in her 50's. She's funny. The first book I read like this was more of the LDS romance option, and all included recipes included chocolate. That may have been a little bit cooler. But only because I'm obsessed with chocolate. Well.. mildly obsessed. I like it. A LOT. But I limit my intake because of the allergy that I have. I know, it's tragic. But I will overcome this trial. Some people are born without legs. I'm allergic to chocolate. I think those are pretty close to the same level of tragedy. Don't you? Really, bust out your violins, cause you need to play me a sad, sad song.
So now, I read, and I want to cook. Especially anything with Lemon. I may be obsessed with lemon, cause it is one of the things Scuttle and I bonded over. Granted, it was because he made mashed potatoes with lemon juice in them. And hot dogs. He said he needed protein in his potatoes. I said he was crazy and should throw them out. Either way, we used to cook with lemon juice quite often together. (I can't tell you how glad I am that we picked the lemon juice and not the hot dogs to take on as a running joke.)
Really, there is no point to this. Just that I made lemon cookies that I found from the books. They have a TON of cornstarch. But still, oh-so-tasty. Mmmm Cookies.
Yep, that's about it. Have a great day, yo!
Oh, and the part about the turtle. The main character in the chocolate recipe book inherited a giant Galapagos Turtle. Some girls have all the luck.
