What you can do with a functioning oven.

It's Cherry Cobbler with Butter Cookie Topping from The Best Recipe!

So..we made this a few days ago using three jars of Morello cherries we picked up from Trader Joe's. I have a history of not liking cherry desserts, but I thought this was very nearly excellent. The filling called for optional kirsch or almond extract. We use amaretto. ^o^

The only thing that kept it from being perfect was the fact that the underside of the cookie topping got melty in some places, rather than baking properly. We've had this happen with the Butter Cookie Topping before. It still tasted good, but I would prefer it if it baked all the way! Kristen says she thinks it'll bake more evenly if we refrigerate the dough for longer before we use it. It appears the butter in the dough is melting before the dough bakes. Oh well, practice makes perfect!

I'm trying to keep my spirits up, but I'm not a happy camper this weekend. I seriously overdid it with the jogging for the past few weeks and messed up my ankle. I'm going to have to lay off until it stops throbbing and buy some better shoes. =_=

Also, I was using the microplane to grate Parmesan cheese for Pasta all'Amatriciana(Spaghetti with Bacon, Onion and Tomato) last night and grated off the skin on my right thumb knuckle. It bled so much it soaked through the Band-Aid. =_=

So..I've been continuing with Atelier Rorona for the past few nights. I have to say that even though there is fun in the game, I can't even declare it better than Atelier Marie. It definitely has less content, unless you're only looking for little girls with huge boobs shrieking all the time. =_=

The characters in Rorona really, really suck.

That is almost like paradox! How come the little girls out those games gets to have boobs, they are not out that age yet! Not unless some are made out to be more young than they really are, this all made sense to me now! Gotta keep the legal age which may not raise any issues!
