Last night was def. a better night for me in school, as we made really pretty things. We used the puff pastry we had made the other night (mine actually turned out a lot better than I thought) to make cream horns (puff pastry spirals piped with chantilly cream), fruit strips (puff pastry strips piped with pastry cream and decorated with fresh fruit), palmiers (cinnamon sugar puff pastry), and apple turnovers. I liked the looks of the fruit strips the best because of all the pretty colors of the kiwi, raspberries and strawberries. To keep myself from eating everything in site I ate my snack, a kashi cookie, around 8:00. I still had my fair share of licks and nibbles though!
Palmiers and Fruit Strips
I feel more refreshed this morning because I slept in til 8:15. I think the daylight savings time is helping because its not so blindingly bright in my room anymore at 7:00 a.m. For breakfast I made a big bowl of hot multigrain cereal using a cup of almond milk, some pb, a banana and cinnamon. I had some decaf English Breakfast tea on the side.
I’ve got some errands to run today along with working out and cooking! See you at lunch!
