So, if you didn’t get my late night memo last night, here it is again: my lovely boyfriend, Ryan, picked up my camera cord last night from my parent’s house and is mailing it to me today. Hopefully I will get it in Thursday…depending on the glacial pace of snail mail these days. At least its coming though, so hold on! 🙂
Last night in school we had the quiz (I think I did alright..maybe missed two) and then we set out to make some doughs for the next couple days. Because laminated doughs have to be refridgerated overnight, we couldn’t bake them off last night…that’s what tonight is for! I made a classical croissant dough, a danish dough and an almond paste filling. Can anyone guess what we are making tonight?! Last night I snacked on half a chocolate chip peanut crunch clif bar for a sweet snack.
For breakfast this morning I had waffles! No, I didn’t make them myself….but they were still really really good! I found a new kind at the store that struck my fancy: Van’s All Natural Gourmet Waffles in Hearty Oats/ Maple Fusion variety. Man, these guys are tasty!!!!! They were thick and hearty (hence the name) and contained ingredients such as flaxseed, steel cut oats and whole wheat flour. There’s no dairy in these but there is dried honey so it might not be a suitable choice for vegans. I toasted up two of them and sprinkled on about a tbsp of walnuts, poured a little maple syrup over top and ate them with a sliced banana. Mmmmm!!!!!! I’m such a sweet breakfast person. As soon as I wake up, I can count on my sweet tooth striking again……….
