FYI: For these of you asking in regards to the headband within the closing post – it’s miles the My So Called Scarf pattern and it’s easy to knit and merely gorgeous.

V-day is coming. I’m admittedly no longer a romantic, as most of my chums know. In my tips, romantics are at all times atmosphere themselves up for disappointment. I’m a pragmatist. I glean shit executed (or I try to anyway). It surely works for us. Lawful closing evening I attempted to time table a occasion with several of my tele betties and Jeremy casually reminded me that one amongst the dates I suggested used to be our anniversary. Oops!

Winter is back, as are her winds. We have a movie of non-stop horizontal snow dashing past our image dwelling windows, stripping away any warmth within the residence. Kaweah is cuddled up within the space of business on the relaxed faux fur/fleece blanket I made for her in December (and now prefer I had bought sufficient of that awesome faux fur to carry out one for us because there isn’t to any extent extra!)

It’s a correct day to glean stuff executed inner, trusting that the snow out of doors will stick on the mountains and that correct snowboarding is to be had soon sufficient. We did put off friendly thing in regards to the ruin within the weather over the weekend, including getting out for a walkie. I’ve we grunt one one more, “Kaweah needs a slither” when what we’re surely announcing is “I’ve to glean out of doors and breathe some mountain air.” It’s correct for all alive to.

I dilapidated to be an impulse consumer when I first started working merely out of college. All that cash, no duties, I used to be maxing out my retirement contributions and I *silent* had hundreds cash. I establish now friendly how unhealthy it used to be to dwell merely within the back of a Williams-Sonoma in Pasadena. What cured me of that unsuitable behavior briefly grunt used to be transferring – commonly and across the nation. There’s nothing bask in packing stuff you don’t surely prefer in 100 stage warmth to repair the buildup of junk. That, and I loathe litter. Being unfortunate graduate college students helped to position worth range in viewpoint. So although now we have a residence enormous sufficient to retailer method more crap than we at the 2d have, we have laborious about what we wish to resolve, the put the heck we’re going to position it, and if we essentially need it and may perchance maybe presumably exercise it. One in all the pretty a few exquisite issues about my relationship with Jeremy is that we never strive against about cash (we never strive against). He used to be supportive of my salvage of these Gastroflex silicone bombe molds that I’ve been eying for 2 years ever since I dilapidated them in my pastry course. Particularly after I talked about “chocolate” when describing my intended uses. I waited this lengthy to carry out clear I *surely* wished them.

I’ve viewed several forms of silicone molds, but many of the ones in cookware shops are flimsy at handiest. These molds are the commercial versions and I love them. I love them. I looooooove them. Esteem them. Esteem. One other motive I waited see you later to resolve them used to be that I had to carry out clear I could perchance maybe presumably master tempering. Even supposing I dispute I loathe tempering… I’m getting proficient sufficient at it that I’m more fully happy with the approach and have tempered pretty a few chocolate within the past two months on my own. Wooooo! Any individual smack me!

accept as true with with chocolate mousse

Brushing one coat of chocolate is not any longer going to assemble the trick. I brushed two coats and in hindsight, I’d imply three coats. That’s no longer a self-discipline if your chocolate is tempered well since the principle coat dries in a minute and if you’re executed coating the entire molds, the principle one is ready for the subsequent coat. Within the occasion you put them within the freezer to agency up the chocolate (but again, easiest if your chocolate wasn’t tempered well) then carry out clear to let the chocolate attain to room temperature sooner than applying the subsequent coat. In every other case your warmth chocolate will develop real into a gunky mess that sticks and hardens too hasty whereas you’re brushing chocolate onto a frosty shell.

The closing thing you’ll want to carry out when assembling the bombes is the chocolate mousse (or any taste mousse). In my pastry class we stuffed the shells with mousse and then had several variations of the dinky shock within the heart: caramel, peanut butter ganache, etc. I selected raspberries because I salvage to have that 1% of something healthy within the mix.

I stuffed the molds rather of paunchy because I overlooked the chocolate short dough spoiled. If I incorporated the short dough spoiled, I’d have stuffed the molds easiest 2/3 paunchy and squashed the chiffon circle into the mould so as that they were flush with the sides of the molds.

The molds then shuffle into the freezer. Why? On story of the mousse needs to be agency sufficient to shield the enhance of the chocolate shell whereas you happen to invert the bombes. How assemble I know this? On story of I within the commence tried to unmold a bombe that had been within the refrigerator and cracked the shell. Jeremy fortunately ate that failure.

oh, did i mention that i purchased a sheet of mini bombe molds too?

Once the bombes are unmolded, let them attain to room temperature or space them within the refrigerator so as that whereas you happen to lend a hand them, the mousse is relaxed, subtle, and creamy. I embedded one raspberry in every of the smaller bombe molds. They’re completely relaxed. We sent enormous bombes over to our favorite neighbors.
