You know howAwesomeit feels to try something and fail twice before getting it right? I think the delayed gratification makes the end product more memorable. It’s akin to being really hungry and then eating, the food just tastes so much better.
Well, last night was one of those times. I have tried and failed to make almond butter twice before and ended up with essentially almond pulp. I threw it away once and used it in a baked good another time. Well, I decided to give it another go last night and can say with delicious certainty I succeeded.
I have started watching Orange Is The New Black really only because it’s written by Shonda Rhymes. She is great and the show isn’t bad once you get over all the sex scenes. Last episode Piper was sent to solitary for two days and it was hard for me to watch. My biggest fear is being caged up, so some parts of this show break my heart. Sterling loves it. Yes, he is fixed.
Speaking of prison, I had a doctors appointment in Elmira yesterday and there is a huge maximum security prison in town. I took this picture of the front grounds. I sear the prisoners have more holiday cheer than my coworker’s.
Finally to close this random post, who has been enjoying Christmas leftovers? I had these sweet potatoes for breakfast on Monday and they hit all the right places. The pecans that were mixed in pleased my tongue and tummy all at the same time.
What shows are you watching?
What is your favorite Christmas leftover?
