like a little bit of sunshine

May 13, 2008 |  Category:   life


You would have never guessed from Sunday or today’s weather that sandwiched in between those 2 days was a cold, bitter and rainy oddball of a day. Despite the bad weather, M was a trooper and trudged her way up the hill to school and back, a rather longish walk if you’re walking with a 4 year old. The sun, however, is back, dazzling and bright and it’s supposed to creep back up 20 degrees warmer than the previous day.

Things have calmed down a little bit this week, which is a nice relief, though there was still a flurry of packing and trips to the post office yesterday. I need to turn my focus back on work and I admit feeling a moment of panic yesterday when projects and orders seemed to pile up, but today I feel calmer (for no reason, really. Nothing has changed). There have been many moments lately when Mark and I have looked at each other and said “this is crazy!” and “what are we doing?”, but we need to take in the calmer moments as they come, despite how short they may last. Mark’s back in the kitchen today filling some special orders. I’m going to do some work and then take a walk in the afternoon. There’s supposedly a new second hand clothing shop in the neighborhood where a kid’s clothing store used to be. Maybe I’ll check it out.

    I saw this sorbet or whatever it is and searched frantically for the recipe! Did I miss it?

    Love your website.

    Ben, that is a tangerine sorbet I made the other day without a recipe. Just take tangerine juice and add sweetener – enough to make a whole egg float so that the part of the egg that is above the liquid is the size of a quarter. This is the same method that many pastry chefs use every day. I used glucose syrup as my sweetener, but sugar, corn syrup, or anything else should work just as well.
