I will say that today was a zillion times better than yesterday and that our extremely late Christmas party was (as it was the year before) awesome. Great food, great people, lots of laughs. So the drama from yesterday was all water under the bridge as it were. I think that’s a must in restaurant work... but my boss did apologize which I very much appreciated and respected.
SO! On to pictures! This is what I’ve been up to the last two days. Watch out Martha! (totally kidding, I wrapped these on paper plates with plastic wrap and foil.)
These are potentially the least healthy thing I have ever made. (Paul, I lied to you, these will ruin your Jamaica diet. He's going to Jamaica, it's not an actual diet.) The dough is entirely made of butter, cream cheese and flour... I'm a horrible person.
Dylan, the recipient of the gingerbread house told me he had no expectations. I told him I’d never made one before. He seemed pretty impressed. The cookies also went over pretty well. So overall, I’m really happy about it. Although I wish I could have tasted one of those muffins...
For the last little while I’ve been wondering what I would write today that wouldn’t make me sound bitter, but I think I did exactly what you’re supposed to do on Valentine’s Day. I spent it with people I love. It just so happens that I love many people at the moment and in a different way than has become associated with today. So, take that Hallmark!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
