I find it amusingly ironic that I have had very little appetite for the last 3 days (although the ice cream roho got me last night was ohh soo good), I can't stop thinking about food.

I've plotted out the Big Meal for next weekend, and I've decided on the menu for the next time we manage to kidnap shadowstalkerw for the weekend.

Last weekend when we were house sitting, I made my first ever homemade french loaf, which I then turned into sinfully delicious garlic bread. I'll never buy another baguette again. Also, these Olive Garden commercials are driving me nuts. I find Olive Garden's food to be rather underwhelming, and I know the idea of puff pastry and cheese isn't a new one, but their sofatellis just sound so mouth-wateringly good, and are begging to be made at home.

So anyway. Yes. Very much not hungry, been slightly nauseous all day, but... watching Food Network and thinking about food. There is something wrong with me.

Eh, I can relate, actually. I am bloated and queasy almost all the time lately, but at the same time, I actually miss food and eating normally and I spend a lot of time thinking about it. Sometimes I have to force myself to eat, it's hard to explain. D: But I sympathize.

Yeah. I forced myself to eat a yogurt cup last night (he bribed me, said if I managed to keep down real food, I could have ice cream), but I felt really queasy afterward, and the ice cream was really not a good idea; I felt even worse after eating it.

Do you have a date for your surgery yet? I am really really hoping that once they yoink that out, you'll feel worlds better!

I think I made it over the course of 4 hours, but we kinda took a nap in the middle of the rising time, so in reality, it only takes an hour and a half - 2 hours, and of that, only 30 minutes is used actually babysitting or working the dough.

Alot of people think making bread is time intensive and/or hard, and it really really doesn't have to be! Have your yeast proofing on its own for 10 minutes, then 3 minutes to mix your ingredients. 10 minutes kneading if you don't use a food processor or a mixer (I have the technology, I just prefer using my hands), then you watch tv while it does its thing. :)

I had put off making french-style loaves because you're supposed to roll them out into a flat sheet, then roll them back up into a cylinder and it really intimidated me. But now that I've done it, I'm kinda wondering if you can skip the rolling out part... hmm. Experiment time, methinks.

ANYWAY. If making bread just isn't your Thing, that's perfectly cool! But if you just think it's time intensive, it doesn't really need to be. :)

I don't care for the host of that show, so I typically don't watch it unless he's going somewhere local. But I have become much more confident in the kitchen, having roho making ommy faces and coming back for seconds definitely helps. :)

I just think he's a massive tool. Obnoxious, loud and has no redeeming qualities whatsoever. That is, however, just my opinion, and I don't expect others to share it. :)

That being said, he's done a couple of local places here in Cambridge that looked tasty, so.. we do occasionally watch. :)
