How I missed my ramekins!! I came up with the perfect compromise last night! My favorite dessert is my madre’s bread pudding. Kevin loves apple crisp. A lot. That’s right, I remixed them together.
I diced up one Honeycrisp apple (that’s where the awesome Honeybear sticker came from!) and divided it among four ramekins. On top of that I put the oldest, nastiest bread I had. I just ripped it up and stuffed it on top. A quick Google of my blog reveals that bread was from SEPTEMBER 21, the day I made some super gross French toast, but there was no mold!! However, I didn’t even have to toast the bread. It was that hard.
Next, I mixed in some raisins. I whisked together two eggs and approximately a quarter cup of skim milk and poured it over apple/bread combo. We finish by drenching the whole thing in cinnamon & brown sugar. Yum.
Ahhh… I was so happy to be in the elevator ALONE! I hate riding in elevators crowded with strangers. I’m far from claustrophobic… I’m just shy. And why don’t people have the decency to look distracted by their smartphones? Instead they make idle chatter about the weather or stopping at every floor. Blah, blah, blah! :)
Snacking at my desk wasn’t so simple. I’ve told you guys before that my desk is in an EXTREMELY VISIBLE area. In fact, someone visiting the building the other day was championing for me that they need to give me an actual cube. Being a hallway dweller is actually worse than being a cube dweller. I promise! I just needed a snack! But it was so noticeably crunchy that I had to eat it super slow. Maybe I should’ve just licked out my garlic Sabra hummus. You know I wanted to! :)
Speaking of salty snacks…

I always feel so well-behaved because I rarely give in to sweets, but salts have their consequences too! I could fit more chips than that it my little fist! Haha.
I got some VERY EXCITING MAIL. My wedding thank yous from Pinhole Press! They are stunning. I love them so much I want to thank myself. Lol. I want to show you, but 10 out of my 12 readers were at our wedding so they’ll be getting one in the mail. Later!
Last day without internet! I’ve been hanging out in the clubhouse again so I can plan recipes for all the baking I have to do this weekend. It’s LOADS of baking. Very festive fall baking. Be excited.
Also, I bought Kevin’s first gift for the Advent mini-gift chain! Only 3 left to find! So fun!
