Man was it a lovely day out. And I refunded the crappy excuse for a leather punch, got paid from the work I did with Mom, and Mom gave me some extra grocery money for some healthier food and fruit/vegetables (trying to pare off a few pounds before AN in just over two weeks, and I have been eating like CRAP lately.) Oh how I missed you, strawberries. And oh how I hate carrying you, canteloupe.

What flavor of pie?

Still haven't played sims! I had to feed my bichon who wound up getting 8 teeth pulled, so feeding him meant blending wet food and water to get soup. After he ate I had to put him out and then he cuddled with me for an hour. Maybe I'll get to play before dinner...

Pork pie, or rather pork and quails eggs (it's a recipe in one of the books I keep on the kitchen counter). I've always assumed that I'd have to buy a special tin to make pork pies (and as luck would have it, a friend of my mum's sells quail eggs), but the recipe called for a muffin tray (which I have).

The thing was, the recipe also called for 15cm and 20cm circle cutters (the later to line the tin, the former for the top). Looking at the pictures pastry circles that big just didn't seem right (20cm would line the tins with lots of excess but 15cm would be almost twice the size the lid would need to be). I've checked and confirmed that there's only one standard size for a muffin tin (notwithstanding minimuffins and the like), which made me wonder if circle cutters are measured by circumference or something.

So now I'm defrosting some old pastry to test the best sizes mysel tommorow, which is a lot of effort (and a waste of frozen pastry) really....

Quail eggs sound interesting. How different are they from chicken eggs?

Apparently the only difference is that quails eggs are smaller. They're even collected in the same way (or so I'm told).

If I can't get any after all, I'll probably just be able to chop up chicken eggs (basically the idea is to put a whole boiled egg in the middle of the pie and pack the meat around it).

That sounds interesting. Good luck!
I have no idea what we're having for supper. But I'm starting to get hungry.

I've just found out that the book I was using had a printing error. Crisis averted.

Having pork loin roast for dinner, here. Yum yum. Though I hope the meat's still okay. It SUPPOSEDLY expired six weeks ago, but it was kept in the freezer instead of the fridge until last week and it doesn't smell or look like it's gone bad.

What kinda soup?

Nom nom.
I've had a sammach all day :/ Boyfriend get's out of work in about half an hour but won't get home until close to an hour after that and I am getting pretty obscenely hungry.

I just bought a US PSN voucher code off eBay (from a seller I've used before, albeit using someone else's account since I didn't have one at the time) but the email I got didn't have the code in it (it said to reply to the email if there wasn't one, so I'm guessing it might be some sort of security measure, but it's still annoying). >_<

EDIT: Scratch that, I got a response and a code! ^_^

I'm having Shepard's pie tonight, with pot roast instead of hamburger.

So yay for that.
