I’d really prefer that I think of something less self absorbed to write about, but I’ve been consumed lately by this monster to do list. Finally got to cross ONE big thing off of it, that stupid take home midterm (by stupid I mean stupid-difficult) and now it is on to the baddest of the bad boys: The MPRE. 2 full days stand between me and this monster and I will vanquish him. I will.
Before the vanquishing and after the midterming, I gave myself a break to create this lovely princess:
This creation comes from one of my favorite recipe/cooking/baking/super hip young woman life blogs called
. The title of this blog alone makes me swoon…a word play on one of the greatest literary works of all time, using a crepe? Yes. Hang out with me forever.
WAKA FLAKA UPDATE:
Here I am on the other side of the two weeks from hell to tell you…THANK GOD BABY JESUS HALLELUJAH I’M ALIVE! Made it through all those crazy tasks and although I don’t have tons of free time after all my tests, etc. it still feels good to be done for a while. No big assignments due for several weeks, really until finals in 2.5 weeks, so it is nice to just set smaller goals for myself for a change. Trying to chip away at the huge humongous huge paper I have due soon, and so far so good.
Baking adventures have continued, but with a non-baking recipe aptly named “Peanut Butter Crack Bars.” I got the recipe from a friend and made them for a small get together this past weekend. Essentially, you throw about 40 lbs of powdered sugar together with 30 lbs of butter, a smattering of graham cracker crumbs for texture, and a jar of peanut butter and spread that gooey deliciousness in a pan. Then you melt together MORE BUTTER with chocolate chips and dump THAT chocolate loving over the peanut butter business. Then you wait for the most agonizing 30 minutes of your life while it sets up in the fridge. They are called “crack bars” for a reason.
I will be making them again for easter, but this time instead of squares cut apart I will fashion them into eggs and bunnies. Festive.
