In between rounds of multiplayer Gears of War tonight, I’m making cakes for my son’s Confirmation tomorrow. The recipes call for egg whites and let me just say this: Eggs are officially the gookiest thing there is. Ooky, gooky, yucky, ucky. Ick.
And while I’m ranting, what’s the deal with KitchenAid mixers? I mean, people seem to think they’re the greatest thing to grace a kitchen since the knife, but what’s up with the user interface? They mix stuff really well, but then it takes three hands to get the darn bowl out of the mixer and you’ve got to take the beater out at the same time! Great, now I’ve got a gooey beater that I’ve got to deal with right now when what I really want to do is pour the batter into the cake pan. Argh, that’s worse than a modal dialog box!
Whew. Ok, I feel better. Now, which way to the locust horde?
