REDWALL FRUIT FLAN

It’s been a year and a day since the last time I read any of the Redwall series, but as a much younger chef I was utterly enamored by the world that Brian Jacques had woven. It was filled with heroes and battles and feasts the likes of which you could only dream about, all of which were hosted by mice, rats, badgers, and other such crittery animals.  

That being the case, you might expect most of the food to be mouse-sized. Sadly since I didn’t have any tiny cake pans with which to cook with, I had to make do with people-sized ones. Somehow I doubt anyone will complain!

Happy 29th birthday to me

Its now officially my birthday. I’m almost 30 now. Feeling kind of old. :P

My parents are really busy this weekend so I probably won’t be able to do much today. My mom might bake me a fruit flan, and take me out for a burger for supper. This sounds kind of boring, but its not fast food, its from an organic local farm’s restaurant and its really good.

Later this week I might see a movie with my parents. Probably Spider Man or the new Planet of the Apes movie, and I might go look for fossils (in Courtenay nearby is famous for its aquatic fossils which include mega reptiles like mosasaur and elasmosaurs).

But I have to admit I’m also feeling quite lonely. I don’t really have any close friends anymore so I will be spending my birthday just with my parents. A lot of this is related to both of my social anxiety and shyness. Its really hard for me to make friends, or even retain the friends I make. Both of my siblings live away from here so they won’t be able to come to my birthday either. I’m also really not happy about my accomplishments at this age. But I’ll try to be optimistic and not blame myself too much.

If you want to wish me a happy birthday, I’d appreciate it. It might make me feel a bit less alone on my birthday. :)

FLAUGNARDE

SOME FANCY-ASS FRENCH DESSERT FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE SWEET CUSTARDS AND WANT SOME FRUIT TO DIVE-BOMB INTO THEIR LIFE.

HONESTLY IT’S MEANT TO BE MADE IN A BIG-ASS PAN THAT YOU SHOVE IN THE OVEN, BUT MY OVEN IS FUCKING TINY AND MY MUFFIN PAN NEEDED SOME LOVIN’. 

SO! MINI FLAUGNARDE IS ACTUALLY WHAT I MADE, BUT IF YOU WANNA POUR THINGS INTO A DEEP DISH INSTEAD, THAT’S YOUR RIGHT! (fight for it)

So here are photos of the Fruit Flan me and my partner made today in Baking, going to use these glorious pictures for my portfolio.

Unfortunately with the fruit design, we ran out of strawberries and kiwis (those are gold but they were SUPPOSE TO BE GREEN GOD KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED) and barely any raspberries so here is my partner and I sort of improving the top. Which didn’t come out too badly, I like the one on the right better.

But we had to box them up to be sold so I couldn’t keep them, making my own tomorrow at home along with Ravioli from scratch! Tomorrow is going to be busy!!

The 3rd photo has a glaze on it, incase anyone is asking why it’s so shiny.

"Sus! Magbbreak din kayong dalawa."

< insert tunog ng ampalayang iginigisa >

Linya ng mga taong ang tanging pinaniniwalaan na lang ay ang konsepto ng relationSHIT. Linyang paulit-ulit mong sinasabi kapag nakakita ka ng dalawang magjowang going-strong habang ikaw ay (1) nananatili pa ring single or (2) kaka-single mo lang ulit for the nth time. Yung kahit salpakan mo ng fruit salad at leche flan, bitter pa rin. 

Nakakainis lang yung mga ganyang tao. Mga taong parang supporting villains sa kwento ng iba. Mga taong may nakainstall na ‘breakup-forecast application’. Mga taong ginagawang pang primetime-bida ang lovestory ng iba. Subaybay na subaybay pero mas excited sa kung paano mag-eend. Kulang na lang ng malaking sandok at lutuan kung maisumpa yung kaligayahan ng dalawang taong wala namang konek sa buhay niya. Yung mga taong atat na atat magsabi ng. “Sabi ko sa'yo eh. Maghihiwalay din ang dalawang yan.” Isang malaking kaestupidohan.

Darating ka talaga sa punto na para kang ampalayang hindi hinugasan ng asin sa pagkabitter. Nasaktan ka eh. Alangang magpaparty ka pa di ba? Pero wala kang karapatang ikumpara ang kinahinatnan ng nakaraang relasyon mo sa kung anong magandang nakikita mo ngayon sa ibang tao. Hindi mo alam kung anong hirap ang pinagdaanan ng mga nananatiling in-a-relationship ngayon para husgahan sila ng ganyan lang. Dahil may mga taong pilit pa ring ipinaglababan ang pagmamahalan nila sa isa’t-isa magkaroon lang ng happy-ever-after. Yet ganyan ka mag-isip. Kaya respeto lang sana. 

Maging masaya ka sa kaligayahan ng iba. Ano ba’t magiging masaya ka rin. Nauna lang siguro sila. :)

I don't know what halo halo is, but I'm 110% certain is Jack Zimmermann's favorite dish.

This is halo-halo (which is pronounced hah-lo, not hay-lo)


It’s a Filipino dessert of shaved ice with condensed milk, topped with a variety of fruits, beans, jellies, flan and ice cream.

It’s one of my favorite things.
