Sick of Mera, I invited Abrar over.
She brought over not one but two desserts from Mr Baker, which I thought was so sweet and thoughtful! One was these amazing Saffron Rose Water Balls and the other was Pistachio Ice Cream Balls!
Better still, she hadn’t opened either one up and started noshing on them on the way over (unlike Mera, who prefers to paw everything and dribble over the food beforehand, which grosses me out so much).
First, I forced Abrar into the Kitchen (she’s never been) and had her help me make an Apple Crisp and Banana Bread. She was super proud of herself and took a ton of pics afterwards for Snapchat lol She was so cute!
Of course since Mera had enjoyed the Ice Cream at Vermilion, we just had to go there again and again and again (it was her MO, revisit until we were sick of it, ugh).
You can see me hamming it up for the camera (lol) while we waited for our turn. Mera is the one next to me with huge sunglasses.
Since Mera was parked incorrectly (cringe) she had to leave (suspiciously right before it was time to pay).
Meanwhile, I chatted with this absolute darling of a woman, who agreed to let me take a photo of her pretty hand holding up the Ice Cream in the flavor Black Gold, complete with the Charcoal Biscuit Cone (for my Snapchat).
I don’t know why but this seemed easy to me. I was set on making Choux au Craquelin (Cracked Cream Puffs)!
I mixed 1/4 tsp of Salt with 1/2 Cup Sugar and 1/4 Cup Corn Starch and 2 Egg Yolks and 1 Large Egg. I whisked it until the Yellow Mixture turned into a Light Beige (it’s noticeable).
Then, I heated 2 Cups of Milk in a Sauce Pan and added 1 tsp of Vanilla Essence and let it simmer for a few minutes. Next, I poured some of the Milk into the Egg Mix (gradually, so the Egg wouldn’t cook).
Next, I placed the Egg + Milk Mix back on the fire for 5 minutes. Afterwards, I added 4 tbs of Buttah! With the fire off, I stirred the Butter in.
So, I found these boxes of Ice cream Powder in the flavors Strawberry and Chocolate and Vanilla from the brand Dreem on taw9eel.com and decided to give them a try. No Ice Cream Machine needed!
Basically, you just mixed the Ice Cream Powder with Milk, use the Electric Mixer on high for about 5 minutes, then pop it in any Dish and store it in the freezer (for it to freeze into Ice Cream)! Super fast and simple and easy!
Inspired by the success of my first gathering during the pandemic, I decided to invite a newer friend called Mera over for a BBQ Lunch and Swim at the Pool (I even lit my Coconut Water Candle for the occasion)!
Once again, past midnight (which was usually when I got the urge to “make things” in the Kitchen) I made some more Home-Made Froyo (recipe to come!) this time using Strawberry Jello (which turned everything a cute pink)!
Mini Pancake Cereal was trending (ugh, TikTok) so I decided to hop on that trend!
Honestly, I debated whether I should post this up or not. I gave it a day (slept on it) and as you can see, decided to go for it.
This Saturday, an A-list lineup of comedic icons are joining forces to help raise money and awareness for an emergency relief fund benefiting working comedians who have been financially impacted due to the pandemic with Laugh Aid.
The four-hour telethon puts the spotlight on a powerhouse roster of comedy superstars including Ray Romano, Bill Burr, Marc Maron, Iliza Schlesinger, Jeffrey Ross, Nikki Glaser, Hannibal Buress, Bob Saget, Dane Cook, Anthony Jeselnik, Patton Oswalt, Ron Funches, and many more.
The line-up includes many more comics and the fundraising event will be streamed live on multiple platforms. Again, just to confirm, it’s a telethon. Personally, I can’t wait to watch Bill Burr and Daniel Sloss and all the rest!
Watch me wait and wait only to find out it’s not available for viewing in my region lol
Anyways, if you weren’t aware and are interested, now you know. Enjoy! ^_^
The Haunting of Hill House was yet another show that debuted on Netflix during October. Everyone has been raving about it! Even the King of Horror, Stephen King described the show as “close to a work of genius.” in his tweet!
I could’ve sworn I posted a review of the movie Split immediately after watching it, but I can’t seem to find anything about it on my blog.
I mean… I distinctly remember pointing out that Split had a very blatant Easter Egg on the poster (let alone all the ones in the actual movie)!
More importantly (lol) I remember mentioning that I thought James McAvoy was so hot in Children of Dune (he was actually the inspiration behind the purchase of these H&M Black Wide-Leg Pants hauled here) and X-Men (all the ones he was in) and Shameless (UK) and Wanted and Atonement, and despite all the cray, thought he was very attractive in Split as well! How do I remember the structure of the missing post (down to each link) if I never actually got around to writing it? I searched both the the Drafts Folder and Deleted Files Folder. I even typed all kinds of possible keywords for the missing post (and aside from a small mention of actor Eamonn Walker being in the movie Unbreakable in my review of the prison show Oz), I got nothing, which was quite… strange. Actually, scratch that. Since the topic at hand is an M. Night Shyamalan Film, strange mishaps seems only fitting. Honestly, M. Night Shyamalan (not his movies, HIM, as in the actual man) scares me!
In any case, I absolutely loved Unbreakable, was a bit underwhelmed by Split (kinda’ predictable but enjoyable nonetheless) and super excited for Glass! I can’t wait to see Bruce Willis (I wonder if this is why he allowed himself to get roasted on Comedy Central just recently), Samuel L. Jackson and of course James McAvoy reprise their roles! That said, it’s gonna’ be a long wait, since Glass is set to be released in January. In the meantime, we can just keep watching the trailer (above) to tide us over lawl
