Thursday Thoughts

Last weekend I decided to make pizzelle cookies. Things were going great, I wasn't under or over browning them, I wasn't dolloping too much batter in the circles and having overflow. About halfway through, the pizzelle maker stopped working. I had just shut the lid on two blobs of batter and heard the light "tick" from green to red, but there wasn't a light. I waited a while, then checked the cookies. Not done. I shut the lid and waited some more. Still not done. The maker was cooling down. It was dead. Sigh.

So we tried pressing it through a cookie press. Fail. So we dropped spoonfuls on a cookie sheet, spread them out thin, and baked them. Fail.

I hope we enjoy this last half batch batch of pizzelle until we get around to buying a new pizzelle maker, if we get one.

What we're eating:


What We're Watching:

  • We finished all the episodes of Arrested Development on Netflix.
  • We started the final season of OITNB on Netflix and are about 7 episodes into the new season. 
  • We're caught up on Agents of SHIELD, which I am enjoying more than I thought I would.
  • I watch Animal Kingdom on TNT (SP doesn't) and can't wait to see how the Adrian problem is handled, if they can pull off Smurf's latest job, what happened to Colin - I've really been enjoying this season.

What I'm Reading:

  • I read the new Daniel Silva book The New Girl. I love his Gabriel Allon novels. As usual, I couldn't put it down.
  • New magazines are arriving. Not much progress on the pile.
