Gonna make a pumpkin pie because that’s a thing you can’t get in the uk and I’m curious. Also I have a large pumpkin.
I made about 50 cupcakes for World Aids Day! They were vegan chocolate cupcakes with beetroot in, and they were surprisingly not weird at all. Beetroot with cocoa powder kinda turns into chocolate chips! Which was good, because I couldn’t find any “accidentally” vegan chocolate in Tesco. I don’t really know why I decided on vegan, mainly just to see if I could do it I guess :P I also made some decidedly un-vegan cornish pasties for dinner.
The cornish pasties turned out to be a Good Plan, because K and I were going out to watch 50/50 on Orange Wednesdays, so we wrapped them up in tin foil and ate them at the bus stop. The film was good, it was full of things that struck a chord with me (hey, the guy even got the same dog as me. Also “I loooooovve morphine!”).
When I got home, there was a pyramid of cupcakes waiting for me on the side as my flatmate had dutifully shovelled 4 batches of cakes one after the other into the oven. I went to my 9am today with a bag crammed with cake (also, I keep singing the Portal song in my head, and keep only singing “it’s so delicious and moist!” out loud. It gets me the strangest looks…). Anyway. Got the cakes to the Queer Cafe this afternoon, had a nice cup of tea and a chat with the gays. Followed that up with pilates and then came home and made a nice beef madras with rice and poppadums using the remainder of the pasty filling.
It’s been a productive couple of days!
