- What’s had you spinning ’round in circles lately?
ummm... cyclic hexadienes? LOL. been studying benzene reactions for days to prep for ochem exam. and it helped! finished that tough mother with enough time to check work, but whether or not i got a good score... have to wait and see next week.
- When were you last on a bicycle?
rode on thursday, but no exciting bikeventure. just down to the store for toothpaste.
- Who’s the best storyteller you know?
Dr. B has some of the most interesting stories! very hilarious too.
- How well do you handle carnival rides?
during the ride i'm ok. after the ride i'm usually about to regurgitate my lunch.
- What do you think of TV gameshow Wheel of Fortune?
i love word puzzles! but wheel of fortune doesn't guarantee a win even if you can solve all the puzzles. you could land on a bankrupt or just not spin enough dollars than the other contestants. hence, i would never go on that tv show. i also noticed the prizes are harder to win. in order to win a car you have to land on the "1/2 car" space TWICE (you know, 1/2 + 1/2 = 1 whole car) and then you have to solve the final puzzle, meaning you have to make it to the final puzzle in the first place, before you can get the car. i also think i'd be pretty good at jeopardy but could never win because my reflexes are so slow... can't buzz in fast enough.
today i was feeling lazy and didn't want to go out. instead i stayed home and made scones with lemon curd because i have a whole carton of milk expiring today. later i will finish up the carton by making tapiocas and umm... cereal. haha. need to find more milk recipes.
for the scones, try them for yourself if you like. my recipe is super simple and can be made quickly however, it's not an AAAA recipe. it tastes good, but i'd still pick liliha bakery scones over these any day of the week. as for the recipe source? sorry, it's hand written on loose leaf paper in a binder that i have, not sure who the original author is. they also aren't the prettiest looking... but i tried to make them homey and delicious so you would be tempted to try them out too. ;)
mix in a bowl 2 1/2 c flour, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 tsp baking powder.
cut in 1 stick (8 tbs?) COLD butter.
add 1/4 c sugar (or 1/3 c if you plan to have it plain).
add 2/3 c milk
make a dough ball, try not to mix too much. may be a little crumbly.
split into 6-8 pieces and bake 425ºF on a greased cookie sheet for ~20'.
* optional: brush top with egg before baking for a golden sheen.
for the curd, it's a standard recipe that i just eye ball. sorry!
don't worry you only need a few ingredients and it's fun to be a mad kitchen scientist!
super low heat butter maybe half a stick or less.
add lemon juice.
continually whisk... add in milk, tbs at a time, don't let it curdle!
add powdered sugar to taste (still whisking on low). it should thicken up by itself. :)
pour over baked scones, then soak up the rest with toast for breakfast. om nom nom!
