I’ve never been much of a baker, but today being a free day from the university I thought, why not make a cake today. And so I did. I found a recipe from the Internet, (I wonder if anyone ever finds anything somewhere else than the Internet nowadays…) and started the work. I was almost positive that something would go wrong, I’d forget to add something, I’d add something twice, I’d add something at the wrong stage, or if all else succeeded, I’d leave it in the oven for too long. But there was no catastrophe! It turned out just great. I’m so happy, and I really do feel like I deserve a medal for this :D
I might have to go on a diet after eating this though. Over three cups of butter and four cups of sugar in there! :D Not exactly light and refreshing, but on a cold late fall weekend like this you don’t want to be refreshed. You crave something comforting and fulfilling – something like this cake. And doing something by impulse can be very refreshing!
Today’s dream quote: “We come this way but once. We can either tiptoe through life and hope we get to death without being badly bruised or we can live a full, complete life achieving our goals and realizing our wildest dreams.” <3
Okay so part three it is :D At this point I want to say that the things I have already said I am going to do are in no particular order, just in the order in which they came to mind, and I will continue with that.
Visit the cloud forest in Costa Rica
This has been a dream of mine for quite a long time.
It’s so beautiful. I mean the trees, the birds the everything! It’s just a place I have to see.
Plus, this would be sooo amazing
Cook a gourmet meal from scratch
I can cook a bit of course. I made a delicious beef just today. And I can make a killer pizza, with self baked dough and all. But I would really love to be able to make something truly glamorous, a true gourmet dish. I mean I love food, and I love to eat out. And I have tasted some of the most sweetest things. I have had dishes like “Fried fillet of reindeer from Inari and ptarmigan from Utsjoki, creamed sheep polyporus mushroom, terrine of cold-smoked reindeer and new crop potatoes served with dark game sauce “. It tasted so good. And sounds fancy. And would certainly impress anyone. So I would really love to know how to make something like that.
I am so hungry right now. To the fridge I say! :D
But before that, a dream quote for today: “Throw your dreams into space like a kite, and you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” ^^
