Hi everyone. Thank you for joining me. Sorry I missed last weekend’s coffee share. Can I interest you in a cup of coffee? I made up a mix of my Sumatra/French Roast blend and Toasted Pecan this morning.
Okay, let me first start off by saying – the next time I decide to do the April AtoZChallenge (official or unofficial) remind me not to!! I don’t have anything against the challenge and think it’s actually a wonderful thing but every time I attempt it, I end up falling short somehow.
This last week was our Passover. We actually follow a different calendar than the better known “calculated” calendar typically followed by most jewish sects. The week leading up to this (including last weekend) was quite busy with all the shopping, cleaning, and prepping that needed to be done which is the big reasons I wasn’t around last week and the reason that I fell short on the April AtoZ Challenge.
One of the things I remember most about passover growing up was making (or rather helping to make) something called Sponge Cake. A full size sponge cake is a bit too much for our small family and there’s a pretty good chance a lot of it would end up going to waste. I tried to look for a mini sponge-cake recipe but was not successful. I did, however, find a recipe for mini victorian sponge cakes that used coconut flour in place of wheat flour. The only problem with coconut flour is that it doesn’t seem to absorb the liquids as well so the batter came out super runny. I decided to add some cake meal acceptable for passover. The cakes turned out pretty good though they were a bit dense (probably from adding a little too much cake meal).
Another traditional part of the seder meal is Matzah Ball soup, which also came out really good.
In other news, I am now signed up to take 3 HIT classes for fall term (HIT = Health Information Technology).
- Intro to HIT
- Medical Terminology
- Health Info Employment Policies
Have I mentioned yet that my son has earned his green belt in martial arts? It just gets harder from here. He’s now learning a new kata…. (I’m hoping this video upload works)
Well that’s pretty much it for me for this week. Hoping everyone had a great last couple of weeks and wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
