Dear work,

Please stop sucking the life out of me. I’m too tired and I can’t take it anymore.

For such an ugly suit, it actually photographed nicely.

I’m honestly really mad that my delegates didn’t get to vote. Acclamation, my ass. WTF is that all about? Regardless of the outcome, i would really have liked for my vote to count.

I love her, and you know what? Maybe I did it more for her than for what she believes in. I’m bitter.

And I’m off to watch Obama’s speech while crying into a pint of Ben and Jerry’s.

Sopapilla Ice Cream

May 5, 2008

(I posted this on my food blog, but it was so good that I’m posting it here too)

Yes, you read that right. Honey frozen custard with a dolce de leche swirl and sopapilla bits. I was a bad girl this weekend. This is definitely not healthy, but it sure is delicious. So delicious that we’re already out and I had to promise to make more tomorrow.

I’ll post how I made it, but I do have suggestions: 1) use fat free half and half to make it a tad healthier. I’ve done this with other ice creams, and it comes out good. It’ll get a little icy if you freeze leftovers, but nothing horrible. Definitely worth it to save on calories. 2) Making the sopapillas was a pain in the butt. Unless you really want to, I’d skip this part. Sub half of a cruller. Or just leave them out The flavors will be the same. Obviously all of these would be amazing on they’re own as well.

For the ice cream you’ll need a batch of honey custard, about 1/4 batch of dolce de leche, and about 3 sopapillas torn into very small piceces (like large bread crumbs). If you omit the sopapillas, you might want to add a little more cinnamon. Freeze the custard according to your ice cream makers instructions. Just before its done, add the sopapilla pieces. Follow up with the dolce de leche, letting the machine run just enough to swirl it through.

case in point. This weekend I went to an event with Tim Gunn. A woman asked him how she could tell people to dress better. My answer? Dont wear hot pink velour sweatpants to an even with Tim Gunn. And dont try to dress them up with a blouse and heels. (edited to add: she actually used the phrase “slobification of America.” People sitting around her were snickering while she was going off on her little rant.)

case two: I am currently blogging from jury duty. The jury assembly room is a sea of ripped jeans, hoodies, and boxy tees. Have some respect for the court people!
