The State of the Me

Hello to you few folks who still read this blog. *waves*

Things have been a bit stressful here of late, so I’m having a bit of trouble concentrating/being creative. Sadly, poetry about depression has always seemed a bit…melodramatic to me, so until I actually manage to come up with something interesting…I won’t be posting anything like that.

So, let’s go on to a quick rundown of the good stuff, shall we?

I went to a surprise party a week or so ago. The surprise worked! Huzzah!

Behold the cake of amazingness! –

In other news I actually went to one of those cookie swap things. Yes, that’s right, I baked cookies. I would like to point out here that I do not own a stand mixer. (I do, however, really really want one…mind you…I have no idea where I’d put it.) I, the hermit, went to a party where I knew a whole two people, met some nice folks (and two cats), had soup, chatted, lifted a large cat (…I have a thing about large cats, and he didn’t seem to mind…), and generally had a nice time. That’s two (Count them, two! *ah ah ah*) social engagements in a week. Weird.

Wanna know what else is weird?

I made Chicken Tikka Masala! (Yes…that means I cooked)

It didn’t turn out too bad for a first try. Also? I have all sorts of notes for my next attempt. I even bought a new skillet for it (shown above.) I’ve used the skillet a whole bunch since I got it (note to self: get a lid for it, darn you!) and it’s fab.

So…there you are. An update with socializing and cooking. Darn it…I’m hungry now. But it’s time for bed. Night all!

    Can you send me the recipie? What is the name of the skillit you purchased?

  2. angel Says:

    Hey, The Vig. It’s a Paula Deen skillet. Twelve inches, I think? And the recipe is from Jamie’s Food Revolution. Yes, I can send you the recipe…but it is a wee bit spicy. Also, I need to try the recipe again with some adaptations if you want to wait for that.

    That masala looks good! And the cake looks pretty good too!

  4. Emma Says:

    So, how many different kinds of cookies did you get? :)

  5. angel Says:

    Well, Steph, you would certainly know about cakes, yeah? ;) And yeah, the curry was decent. I expect the next batch to be better.

    I think I got 6 kinds, Emma. I made dark chocolate chip cookies, btw. How are you doing?

    mmmm. yay for cookies, yay for seeing a Calliope. (huggle) Hope you have an awesome christmas-yule-family time.
