Coyote handsome
his coat the same brown
as the dust from which he rises


What is the sound of one hand slapping Schroedinger's cat?


The Quantum Duck goes "quark, quark."

Update to Operation:  make Caramels

Not a total failure, in that the substance when removed from the refrigerator had the general smell and taste of caramels...

...but was the consistency of Hard Candy, which is what I get for letting the temperature exceed the required.

Ergo, that slab o'caramelly-like substance found its way into the trash.  I will be trying again today or some time later this week, but keeping a much closer eye on the temperature.

Amidst knitting socks and doing my usual sunday clean, I will be attempting mint chocolate truffles today, and will also be making fudge.  Those two, at least, I'm sure I can manage without screwing them up.


Aww. The thing to do with said slab of caramelly-like susbtance is to melt chunks of it with heavy cream and make incredibly good ice cream sauce.


I may have to try again, just for that end result.

I seem to recall that we killed a pan the last time caramel was attempted....!

Erm...that was caramel frosting, and I did manage to salvage the pan as I recall. Not the plastic spoon that I melted into the caramel, though.

Of course, I also know exactly what I did wrong that time. Didn't help when I tried again, though. ;)
