Grrrrrrrrrrrr I wish I had noticed the thing about the scheduled blogger outage sooner. I wonder how long this is supposed to last, because it's 7:22 and I want to post soon! Mrph.
The Spanish exam was so easy! I didn't even need to spend so much time studying. I think I only missed one or two multiple choices, and I did really well (I hope) on my written section. We were supposed to say what we bought for a party and I couldn't remember how to say soda! So I put beverages of fruit, but it's okay. My teacher will get it.
Only piccies of dinner tonight, because that was the most exciting meal. I made crockpot lentil and apricot soup.
It was pretty good, but not what I was expecting. I thought that the apricots would make the whole soup sweeter, but they didn't even though I doubled them. So basically, it tasted like lentil soup (but v. good lentil soup) unless you got a bite of apricot. Which was like perfection, the apricots got all mushy and oozing.
I had 2 pieces of TJ's French baguette
And for dessert, Eggnog Panna Cotta from BitterSweet! Second try at using agar flakes. I've had a carton of Holly Nog in the pantry since last year and I need to use it up. So I eliminated about half of with this recipe. And it was a really, really good choice. I didn't have any vanilla, for some strange reason, so I used 1/2 tsp maple extract and you couldn't tell since the eggnog was already spiced. It was sooo light and creamy! I topped it with some blueberries in a feeble attempt to make my dessert look as good as it does on BitterSweet. Mission failed :[
It was a challenge to have dessert, as always, but a little less of one this time. ED always tells me that I'll be overindulging if I have dessert, and I don't deserve that. But guess what? I do deserve to have dessert. I deserve to indulge and live life to the fullest without feeling guilty or "fat" about it, and so do all of you. What we don't deserve is ED! I may have made some mistakes in my life, but that doesn't mean ED should be able to take away the rest of it.
Hope you all had wonderful Wednesdays! Remember, it's all downhill until Friday now!
