Story of today: while it rained, I cooked

The rain in Spain stays mainly in the plain!
~ My Fair Lady, The Rain in Spain

The kitchen is a nice place to hang out when it’s pouring outside!

This morning’s experiments: orange + kahlua ganache truffles, lime + dark chocolate ganache truffles, and lime buttermilk* cake with a light lime juice/icing sugar glaze.

Cake is now sitting in tummies of flatmates, neighbour and friends (and me) – and truffles will be despatched by mail tomorrow after I check with the courier that they will survive the ride… cooking is certainly more fun when there are more people around to eat!

In other news, last night was -> the rugby (which I watched a tiny bit of) – and The Wizard of Oz. Mind still caught between Tin Man and the Yellow Brick Road today.

* = yes, I KNOW the word of the week has been buttermilk, but I’ve now finished the carton of it at last!

  3. Thanks Christina :-) I am following your blog too!

    Greg and Jian – they were definitely fun flavours to make!

  4. Mel, your blog is lovely! I do think that chocolate on a rainy day is most certainly the way to go.

  5. Oh, your lucky flatmates/neighbours/friends receiving couriered truffles (!! amazing). That cake looks beautiful too – looks like the perfect texture.
