When ambition, self-sabotage, and failure collide... well, I can still bake a pie.

Yesterday I went out and bought a fruit I've never tried before, so I can bake a pie I'm not sure I'll love, just for the challenge factor.

I'm starting to realize that I really enjoy baking and cooking. It's creative, and I get food at the end! What's not to like? But I think the best thing about it is that I have no real ambition related to my cooking. I feel like everything else I don't horribly suck at, I want to monetize. I want to sell my writing. I used to want to do art for a living, and when it looked like I couldn't my art lobe shut down. Even my jewelry and crochet habits go up on Etsy more often than not (although the only things that sell are STILL the materia necklaces, lol). But I'm not going to be opening a restaurant or a bakery. I don't want to be a chef. I just want to make what I like and eat it.

It's... actually really liberating.

I'm making this, by the way.

ANNOUNCEMENT.

At the sacred art of "throw everything you got into a pot and make pasta out of it"-fu, I am the POKEMON MASTER.

(Mushrooms, spinach, garlic, chicken, and butter. Om nom nom.)

Also, I have a mess of new shiny things up on Etsy. Some of these things I made months ago, and I'd just been kind of stockpiling them. XD Enh, the materia necklaces are the only things that are selling anyway. (Need to wire up more marbles, note to self.)

Fic forthcoming.

I'd like to show you guys something.

First, click on this link.

That's the Smitten Kitchen version of apple pancakes. See how pretty and perfectly formed they are? See how photogenically they take the syrup, slathered all over their hot, sweet surfaces?

(Yeah, it's food porn.)

Now I'd like you to take a look under this cut. )

Update re: yesterday.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I canceled the lost check and sent a new one - putting it in a blue Postal Service mailbox this time. So even if someone steals my identity, that payment won't be late.

I have an interview at the sign shop on Thursday. We'll see what we see. I loathe interviews and my worst nightmare is actually being offered the job, so it should be interesting.

Thirdly and most importantly, I made cranberry orange pancakes for dinner. From scratch. Juiced and zested the oranges myself and everything. I am unreasonably proud of myself, considering how ridiculously easy it is to make from-scratch pancakes. Srsly, I have no reason to ever use Bisquik again. And since you're wondering, they were fucking AWESOME. There are ballads being composed to these pancakes.
