What with feeling tired from pulling ground cover and other things, I needed a comfort food dessert last evening.
So I thought a little bowl of pink blancmange would do it. All the ingredients here. I did add in a drop of vanilla at the end.
It's years since I bought liquid milk. With the powder I mix only what I need at the moment, not limited to the quantities the liquid is sold in, and it freezes so I never run out. No waste. I get organic whole milk. They're not paying me to say this! It just works better for a household of one.
And I thought I'd try the windfall cane sugar. It arrived in the Misfits box in mistake for the same amount of flour. So they refunded the cost of the flour, can't charge me for the mistaken sugar. Up to now I'd bought whatever sugar's cheapest on the shelf. But this was an experience.
It has actual flavor, slightly like molasses but very delicate, and it makes a real difference. Also this one is fair trade, always a good thing when it comes to commodities like sugar and cocoa, with a history of oppression. Anyway, this Misfits mistake was very much in my favor. I studied it and now I know a good bit more about sugar than I did.
And the blancmange, just a cornstarch pudding, was cheering.
Later today Tea and Textiles, I must make sure I'm registered right now. If it's good, I'll report back.
Meanwhile the doll is presenting a new question. She's not really keen on the proposed embroidered dress, so we may have high level discussions about it.
She's not so Elizabethan in character as she develops, much more modern. More like a 1920s reporter than a 1520s courtier. Maybe a change in style from the floofy idea I had is called for. So I have to stay flexible, not insist on my first idea. This is where art can be hard, where you're forced to think again when you already had a plan. Stay tuned.
