here we are, another friday!
this friday is a little exciting though. tonight starts high school football in our parts, so the kids are pumped togo to the game. i like going to the game this time of year, i love hearing the band & it is warm outside. i will say i have cared a little bit more about the team now that i may know a couple players. either way, it is fun.
but what is fun is oh hey friday, so go and link on up!!
1// let me tell you about last night. i wish i had a good drank to much, danced on the bar or roller skated through the bar story for you, but i don’t.
last night i went here and took this lovely little tutorial workshop on lettering, the only problem, i am not so good with the lettering.
so mine looked awful, i was super frustrated and wanted to jab my lovely tombow brush marker into my head. seriously, there were 13 people in this class and i would say at least 4 of them were ready to hand letter their story in beautiful print. mine looked like maybe a recovering alcoholic wrote them, oh wait maybe that is because…whatever, i digress.
mine was so super shaky, i couldn’t get the up stroke for the life of me. but as with the macaroons, as i was getting frustrated i decided it is just going to take a lot more practice, so now i have stalked some good lettering peeps on the gram and am ready to practice and keep on practicing until i am lettering everything in my home along with place cards, dessert tables, you get my drift.
stay tuned for lettering updates.
2// speaking of the macaroons, i am not certain if i have shared here that i learned/taught myself to make those perfect little sweet treat cookies. for about the past month and a half i have been trying to perfect each time consuming step.
i have my number of egg whites down
how to separate those said egg whites to get the perfect part of the egg white
the precise time to mix
the exact number of folds
the exact temperature
and of course sifting time
i think i am finally ready to share my macaroons with the world.
so here they are.
i am hoping to get more crazy with the flavors over the next few months. my kids like it that i keep practicing. i have to get them out of the house asap as i will eat them all, like literally, i will just keep walking around popping them into my mouth. i mean come on, they are a 2 bite cookies, that is funny! another great way to ensure the recipe is just perfect is to take the ones that don’t turn out perfect and just dip them right into the filling, i mean why mess around with piping those bad boys!
3// now because i am a big fan of dipping those macarons into the filling, i am so ready to get started with this.
