i started a larger watercolor. hopefully i will finish it soon. i have been inspired by stars well i guess i have been for a long time but i kinda have a theme going here i think. i also have some ideas for the a series of paintings i want to paint called the angry heart. i know im so drama.
financiers are little french cakes made with brown butter and almond flour or in this case i processed sliced almonds and flour together
brown butter is when you heat your butter and it separates and the bits turn brown by the way it smells heavenly
traditionally these are made in rectangular molds but the recipe i used called for a mini muffin tin which yields 24 delicious cakes
there is also honey in this recipe
and only egg whites
but tons of sugar
have i mentioned how delicious these are and that they are all gone....
yup every last one of them. those are blackberries on the top of them too. too bad you were not here to partake in the joy. they would also be perfect with champagne. yes they would. the recipe is here. enjoy!
so friday we were painting toes and jack get very upset because i usually tell him no. however whats the big deal? he is a little boy he wants to have fun and what does he know about gender? what do any of us know about gender and roles? so i said to myself f@$k it and painted his blue.sophie called him a boy girl and then got in trouble because name calling isnt cool. the boy was very happy though. who am i to stand in the way of that?
the utter madness of plants but what i did do was going around here and the yard and collect the flowering stems to make a quite pretty little bouquet of succulent flowers. they are like gorgeous little gems. have you missed me? i have missed you. i love you blogger i really do.
