For those of you keeping score at home, my legs are still swollen to different degrees, although they're both better than they were. I can actually bend my toes now, which I consider to be an improvement. Still haven't seen a doctor about it, since I don't have insurance and the local low-income clinic isn't taking new patients. I'm relying on my tried-and-true method of "hope it goes away on its own".

I actually did some baking today, which is nice because I haven't done any in ages. I have a chocolate cake cooling on the counter right now and when I get ready, I'm going to smash it up and make cake pops. Hopefully they turn out well. I've never done this before.

Also need to get my sourdough starter going again. I've been craving homemade bread.

Had some more Velata fondue last night. It's been a really big hit so far and I'm going slightly insane with ideas for what else I can do with the warmer. Ideas so far have included melting peanut butter for pretzel dipping and making a batch of eggless chocolate chip cookie dough for chocolate dipping.

Speaking of good food, my next non-sweet project is to attempt Cook's Country's Cider Braised Chicken. I saw it on their show today and it looked fabulous.

God, I love being on break from school. I can actually find time and energy to do things.

While I'm thinking about school: I managed to pull all A's this quarter. One class was 100%, one class was 97%, and the third didn't give percents, she gave points, but she assures me that I have an A, so I'll take it.

I'm off the the Renaissance Faire today with roomie [livejournal.com profile] beverly_mcintyr. My camera decided not to work so I probably won't have any great pics to share, but I'll try to take a few with my phone.

In the meantime, may I direct your attention to My Velata page. Velata is chocolate fondue the easy way. The warmers come with everything you need to do fondue without the danger of burning candles or sternos. The chocolate is real Belgian chocolate that comes in packets you heat for a minute in the microwave to melt and then pour into the warmer. No worrying about melting chocolate without it seizing up or separating. The chocolate came out of the pouch perfectly and it was delicious.

My roomie, her mom, and I used one of the milk chocolate ones last night with some strawberries, bananas, and shortbread cookies. We were scraping the bottom of the warming dish, it was so good. Seriously, try some. It's awesome. I can't wait for my next chocolate to arrive.
