a very happy valentines

6

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.

grease me!

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.

  1. You know, I realized bunnies and chocolate go together perfectly, as the creators of the Easter Bunny obviously realized. Bunnies are adorable, and chocolate is delicious/heavenly/sweet/etc. Perfect compatibility!

    And also, I like looking at pictures of food (not as much as eating food, but close). And now that wordpress is no longer blocked you have no excuse! 😀 Not to mention the impending end of our mock exam period.

  2. JEEEAN. Happy Valentine’s Day (okay, now it’s definitely over…)!
    It always makes me smile to see a post by you in my RSS feed. I’d kind of forgotten you had a food blog…good thing for feeds.

    Brown sugar is the shizzbawmbadang. We sure have come a long way from baking brownies from a mix when I visited you in like…Y8 😀
