a very happy valentines
Posted by Jean
Firstly, I would like to point out that I am not late for valentines day. I’m sure that somewhere in the world, it’s still the fourteenth.
To be honest, I’ve never celebrated Valentine’s Day before. I’ve never had a reason to, and it’s pretty much a commercial holiday. Not to mention, 3hrs and 15min of Chemistry HL exams kind of ruined the holiday cheer.
At least, that’s what I thought.
Like this pan, the day started pretty usual. Pretty boring. A little slippery from not sleeping enough, but it was nothing out of the ordinary. For those of you who don’t know, IB is pretty much synonymous with sleep-deprived.
But then it turned out that the chemistry test was alright. Not amazing. Not awful. Seems good to me. Just mix in a little bit of chocolate and it’ll make your day, right?
Just melt it with some delicious, dark chocolate and creamy butter.
And some dark brown sugar. Is it just me, or does brown sugar kind of taste like raisins? Not that I’ve been eating spoonfuls of sugar, of course.
And the caster sugar is so pretty! Just like snow! We had the most wonderful snowfall on valentines day. It was so soft and floaty, like icing sugar! But it didn’t taste like icing sugar. Especially when it went into my eye.
Which leaves us with…one batch of delicious brownies. Oh, didn’t I say that they were low-fat? Oops, my bad. They’re still deliciously fudgy, though! And not too sweet, either – just the way I like it. Chocolate > sugar.
But some things are too sweet for words.
