Tidbits

Breaking news from the Tinyhands Kitchen Laboratories-
We've discovered a way to add empty calories to our favorite breakfast treat, Pilsbury Orange Danish. Dip the raw dough into sugar (preferably raw, or turbinado, sugar) before baking. The heat of the oven will crystallize the sugar into a crunchy shell coating. Now ice as usual and enjoy the impending sugar coma. Be sure to dial 9-1 before taking a bite so that you just have to hit 1 one more time.

I got an interesting fortune cookie last week:
"Someone finds you wonderfully mysterious." Not exactly a fortune, but I'm happy to get it. On the back of the fortune is lottery numbers, but since there's 10 digits I figure it could be her phone number. I haven't figured out in what order the digits go yet, but so far I've gotten a massage parlor in Detroit and an escort service in Cincinatti. Perhaps fate is telling me something.

Finally, some career advice: Make good decisions.
This is especially true if you're The Rembrandt's and someone wants to use one of your songs as the theme to a television show.

What I’m really curious about, aside from the experimenting which led to the cooking discovery, is the 11:59 factor...

1. What's a Pilsbury Orange Danish?

2. Are you really wonderfully mysterious?

Al- You know they're better right out of the oven. You'd best come here to get them fresh.

BourbonBabe- Maybe I'm just a procrastinator and put things off until the last minute?

Theic/Adrianne- I can't fault the Kiwi Ex-Pat for not knowing, but there's no reason a red-blooded American doesn't know about orange danish. Look in the refrigerated aisle next to the butter, eggs, and yogurt. It's a cardboard tube filled with dough, already sliced and rolled with cinnamon, and includes a little tin of icing. Here's the manufacturer's website- see "flavors".

Am I still mysterious? I've posted a lot of personal stuff here. Am I wonderful? Not likely. Kind of you to say though. *blush*

I was speaking more to your Man of Mystique persona than your procrastination skills. Even if you are just pushing things off, it's quite amazing that things always post at 11:59. "Momma always say that were a sign to the devil."

P.S. It’s some biscuits in the oven.

My teeth are aching and the front of my brain is having spasms just thinking about all that sugar.

And I just for the record, I think wonderful and mysterious are overrated quailities.

BourbonBabe- It is amazing, isn't it?

kTp- How dumb am I? I read that and I'm like, "huh?" Ok, I'll pay attention from now on.

Lucky 7- And I finally got me some King cake, but you can't get the good kind with cream cheese on this side of the Sabine.

Adrianne- You know you want some...here, the first one's free.

BeanWench- Don'tcha just love uncurling them as you go?

Z- Come on baby, hurts so good.
