MAJOR SPLURGE ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So, I’m posting this after class tonight just to make sure you all know that just because I have a healthy relationship with food and am pretty healthy for the most part….I AM BY NO MEANS PERFECT! Tonight at class, while my bread was proofing (I got an A by the way on my practical!) I ate my kashi cookie because I was getting pretty hungry for a snack around 8:00. But then…… I learned that the patisserie class across the hall was having their final showing of the pastries that they made for all their family and friends. Students were welcome too and let me tell you–this stuff was gorgeous. It looked just like France; I can’t wait til that class!! Everything was tiny! Petit lemon tarts, raspberry tarts, chocolate truffles, macaroons, tiny slices of perfect Opera cake. I only wish I had my camera but I forgot it at home! I just couldn’t resist…I had a tiny lemon tart (about the size of a quarter), a chocolate truffle and picked at a bunch of other things as well as eating all the frosting off the tiny slice of Opera cake as soon as I got home. They were giving out tins for us to fill and take home so, naturally, I filled an entire tin with macaroons and chocolate truffles. My stomach hurts a bit now from all the sugar and I’m feeling a little bloated, but oh my! was it ever worth it. I’m splurged out. Night.
Yep, I ate one of those chocolate truffles (creamy chocolate hazelnut in the center!) plus the frosting from that cake. And a lemon tart not shown. And a kashi cookie. Meh.
My “A” Challah loaf! I got a 94 on my practical!
