I came up with this chocolate custard, with a bit of egg white in it coz I can’t stand the wastage, haha. Not sure why there were fine lines in the custard, though. Perhaps due to air bubbles from the palm shortening? Maybe I should sift it. :/
I found out last night that the spectrums palm shortening I bought contains a lot of air. Thousands of air bubbles escaped as I melted the shortening over the stove.
I also found out, to my utter horror, that raw honey do not mix into melted palm shortening. Even after heating the mixture. (I added cocoa powder; was trying to make chocolate.)
To be honest, working life is pretty enjoyable for me, especially with an income, but I don’t feel fulfilled. It’s not that I’m dissatisfied, but I’m not exactly satisfied either. I don’t feel like this is what I’m born to do, like this is my purpose in life, like this is what my heart is beating for, you know? And then I look at my friends who are struggling/bored/unhappy in their jobs, and I wonder if I’m thinking too much or plain ungrateful. :/ I just have this desire for a much greater meaning in my life.
How can I be grateful for life, grateful for where I am now and all that I have, and still think that it is not enough, that something is lacking, at the same time?
My dad made me a turntable out of a lazy susan wheel and a round wooden board! :D I’m exploding from joy pretty soon, haha.
The first thing I frosted on the turntable? A bowl. LOL.
Trying to make a coffee dacquoise cake. :) I actually have no idea how chewy or crunchy the meringue layer is supposed to be. I guess it’s all up to personal preference?
No idea how others’ meringues all stayed so nice and rounded. Mine always deflates, whether I bake them until dry and crispy or just until it is still soft and chewy inside. :’(
