Today it is raining (which is my fault, according to the dogs) and we did not have our regular popcorn drop (which is also my fault, according to the dogs). The dogs are just having a bad day. The lack of popcorn is my fault, of course, but the Roomba was running at 3:30PM because I forgot to run it earlier, and I didn't want the Roomba to try to vacuum up the popcorn while the dogs were eating it. Eh. They'll get over it.
I spent most of the day writing one of two missing scenes for the novella, and making candied lemon & orange. I'm planning on using it in the stollen this year instead of the stuff you buy in the store. I may have to adjust the recipe a bit because mine isn't quite as dry. As with everything I bake, it will be an adventure.
|I also added a few chunks of ginger to wake it up a bit. It's quite good.|
