I’m currently stuck in an insanely long line, shopping for Black Friday. Oops.. Wait, Black Thursday?
Thought I’d take advantage of standing in this boring line by finally updating this blog.
I decided to experiment with dessert today, and made an Apple Crisp with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. It was the only traditional thing on our thanksgiving dinner menu. Everything else was Chinese… Not that I’m complaining. It was fantastic Chinese food made by my mom.
Thanksgiving this year is sort of extra special, because we are actually celebrating with family. My mom’s sister’s family is staying with us for a month, and they get to experience an American Thanksgiving and Christmas (they are from Australia).
So I decided to make something traditional for our thanksgiving dinner, and found this easy apple crisp recipe online. It’s seriously amazing! Super light and not too sweet either. Definitely something I’ll be making again.
I love the juxtaposition of the old and the new here. I’m technically just 30 minutes away from the bay bridge, but I still haven’t seen the new bridge yet. I’m a terrible Bay Area-an. Just another thing to add to my bucket list! Haha
I’ve neglected this blog for a while… Work has been crazy, and I’ve also been studying for the GRE. Today was the first day in a while where I’ve had nothing to do really, so I decided to bake! It was my first time baking cookies from scratch, and it was pretty fun. But I realized that we definitely need one of those spiffy kitchen aid mixers, since it’s so difficult to mix everything by hand. I also watched The Matrix for the first time… But I’m definitely gonna need to watch it again… It’s difficult to concentrate on such a complicated movie while measuring out ingredients.
I’ve been meaning to make a post about this for a while. What is it with creepy Indian/desi guys finding you on Instagram and wanting to follow you!? I mean, how do they even find me?? My posts are all private. And I haven’t even shared some of their profile descriptions. Straight up creepy.
So I’m sorry fobby guys, or people whom I don’t know, I won’t be following you or letting you follow me. My Instagram has my private pictures. I don’t just want to friend users I don’t know to get more likes. Not about that life.
So I’m at a conference/retreat for work in Lake Tahoe. Tonight was the first night, and the professor organizing the event invited us to his vacation home. Yup. That’s the view from his house. So beautiful! And their house is gorgeous as well. *sigh* lifestyles of the rich and famous. But really, everyone is here is so humble and nice.
That moment when you see your bus and think you made it, only to have it drive away seconds later :(
So the next freaking bus was over an hour late! Because of some crazy freaking traffic on EVERY POSSIBLE FREEWAY. On top of the bus being late, we got stuck in traffic on the way back too… like an hour and 40 minutes to travel approximately 18 miles.
