A slightly more frivolous post, but I’ve been in a bit of a non-writing mood. Sometimes I have moods where I think that I need to write about serious and deeply thought-provoking things. Other times I just want to write about stuff that’s happening. And then other times, I just want to write about things that don’t particularly matter, but I like them.
Thursday nights are SBS cooking show nights for Jeh and I, and I have been recently inspired again by Rachel Khoo (left) from Little Paris Kitchen on SBS. As I was watching her beat up some choux pastry by hand, break up dark chocolate and melt it with butter for some delicious looking chocolate puddings with salted caramel centres, I decided to look her up and find out about her books (below right). And I ordered one.
I love watching her show. She’s fun and makes difficult recipes look easy, even in her tiny little kitchen. And she has such a great vintage style. Fighting the temptation to starting dressing like her and cutting my fringe just to be like her. But if I do start dressing like her, it’s because I already owned clothes like that. 😉 Maybe one Winter when I can be bothered, I will get a fringe (having a fringe in Summer is annoying).
We’ve also been watching Spice Trip (also on Thursday nights on SBS). It’s about two young spice experts who travel to different countries, investigating and experimenting with a different spice each week.
Thus, I tried adding chilli flakes to my chocolate brownies. It leaves a nice warm tingle in your mouth when you eat them. However, I still haven’t mastered the brownie.It’s better than last time, at least. They were still slightly moist when they came out of the oven, but dry out so quickly. Very good with ice cream, though.
Good thing I’ve started going to a gym.
