This week, I got caught up on a number of things at work. I feel sort of accomplished.
I also made eggnog, ice cream, and eggnog ice cream, for the company potluck. And I also made about 25 cups of green tea and passed it out to people. Fun fun fun!
Today I made about a gallon more eggnog (4x alton’s recipe). I found egg whites in a carton, but unfortunately they don’t whip up like real egg whites. I stupidly didn’t read the carton, where it says “This product doesn’t whip up like egg whites”. They were right. I am not sure whether to whip up some raw egg whites, or just leave the recipe alone. It seems to be fine on its own, just not as light and fluffy. The eggnog was a hit at the potluck, but the next potluck on Thursday I’m entering my nog to compete against three others in a “nog-off”. So, if I can find pasteurized egg whites specifically for whipping, I can make that, otherwise I’ll probably leave it in its current custardy state.
In other news, work has started on the kitchen, at least the tearing down of the wall between kitchen and dining. It looks better already, I can tell that it will be a lot nicer with a more open plan. The current problem is that we’re not sure where to put the fridge, since it is kind of huge, and sort of dominates the room.
Exercise: I slacked off totally during the week, but managed to make up this weekend, 180 minutes of cardio squeezed into fri/sat/sun.
