It is Tuesday again, Internet, and time for another episode of TWD.
Only TWD has been preempted.
How in the world could I let preemption happen?
Uh….because I didn’t make today’s selection of Mrs. Vogel’s Scherben picked by Teanna of Spork or Foon?. I didn’t make them because I would basically be the only one eating them this week, and quite frankly they didn’t appeal to me.
Don’t be a hater.
Instead, I’m gonna show you how to make a Bird of Paradise.
The boy has been taking a Garde Manger class this quarter, and couldn’t wait to show me how to make this lovely little thing.
First you grab an apple, begin to mess with it, but wait! gotta send a text first.
Mix some water and lemon juice.
Sharpen mom’s wee knife instead of using the professional knife that mom bought for college, because that might take him away from the texting.
Slice a wee bit off the bottom and dip into the lemon juice.
Dip the bottom, too because we don’t want it turning brown.
Slice three ovals into the apple, getting larger as you go. You can see how they are being cut.
Dip all the pieces into the lemon juice, stopping only to text.
Cut out a chunk for the neck.
Fan out the ovals on the sides.
And on the top.
Take the bottom piece and wack wee bits off.
He didn’t show me how to do this because of the texting.
Take a wee bit of tooth pick and attach the head, and voila.
Bird of paradise.
Isn’t it lovely?
But who? who could be the beneficiary of all that texting???
Why his sweet girlfriend Bethany of course.
