I have decided to count some cooking projects: some new to me recipes, some invented by me, some I very rarely make and some involving a lot of work.
So, I made some puff pastry and it worked. The pastries did puff. I intended to put some sugar dots on them but forgot for the first batch. These we ate as profiteroles with ice-cream inside, the other we ate just like that.
I also made some kind of Fat Tuesday beignets called "merveilles". The last time I made them, they were too heavy and dry but not this time. They didn't last long but we managed to leave one so we could take a picture.
On the garden front, after many years, the vanilla orchid got it's first flowers. As there are no insects to pollinate them, we are trying to do it ourselves. maybe we will get vanilla beans.
I created some jewelry for a friend. I hope she will like it.
I also made a card to go with it.
I managed to keep to my resolution to use mostly what I have before buying new stuff. I have not crafted a lot but I have reorganized and given away a lot of stuff. It's almost like moving inside my own home!
