I like it when Akemi bakes, but I LOVE it when she “experimental bakes”. By that, I mean when she decides to try out a new recipe or compare slightly different versions of the same dish. This morning, for instance, she made three different types of cookies: white sugar and whole egg chocolate chip cookies, white and brown sugar and egg yolk chocolate chip cookies, and chocolate and peanut butter cookies. The verdict? While all three were very tasty, I informed her I would require a bigger testing sample in order to complete a more thorough study and arrive at a scientifically sound conclusion. Unable (unwilling?) to recreate the conditions of the first experiment, she made me a BIG cookie instead. Verdict? Delicious!
Speaking of Cookies, look at who I spotted crossing the street this afternoon at Granville and 10th:
Yeah, it’s our resident film critic, Cookie Monster, who requested some time off from move reviewing duties in order to take care of his ailing aunt Myrtle in Schenectady. So what the hell is he doing strolling around Vancouver? Good question. Anyway, for what it’s worth, that P90X workout has worked wonders for him. He looks great!
So, how go your respective Halloweens? I was out early today, decorating the house in preparation for the big night. Check out all my hard work…
Anyway, it’s past 6:00 p.m. and so far, no kids. I wonder if word got out that I was handing out healthy alternatives last year: fresh fruit, vegetables, and tins of sardines packed in olive oil
