And now, today, I feel worse than I did yesterday. What gives? Maybe it’s the weather?
I do apologize for turning Holy Poached Eggs into my own personal blog for talking about Christmas illnesses. Oy! This was not my intention.
So, New Year’s is coming up, and with the New Year comes resolutions (which I will likely make none) and also various New Year’s traditions.
However, we’ll deal with those particular traditions later on. I will make an update about New Year’s in Japan, as that’s the biggest holiday over there (at least according to Van Tilden.)
I’ll also post a blog about our traditions here in the USA!
And then there will be the information about my own personal traditions I’ve tried to start for New Year’s because of how tacky I find some of the USA’s traditions.
Lately, I’ve been craving bread. I want to make bread that’s flavored with honey or make a kind of cinnamon-sugar bread. I’m not sure exactly how to go about doing this, but I think it could actually be easily done with self-rising flour, eggs, and milk. You know, like making a cake, only not as…cake-like.
I made some toasted cheese sandwiches last night like Ms. Alice used to make, except I had shredded cheese at my disposal and ended up not putting enough cheese on the sandwiches. Sad day. But the good news is that I used Caleb’s trick of adding a squirt of lemon juice to the cheese and also added garlic powder (a trick of my own), and the cheese’s flavors absolutely popped!
Lemon does a great job bringing out flavors. The acidity gives a hint of life and flavor to the food.
And now, the weather’s turning cold again, ack! Winter’s finally arrived, and it’s going to try to destroy me as it did last year. I am SO not down for that.
Also, 2012, the Year the World Will End, is rapidly approaching us. The set date for Doomsday is December 21, 2012. So this coming year, I will constantly be writing about the Doomsday and will even supply a wonderful set of “last meal” recipes.
Have an EGG-cellent day, everyone!
