Heylo. Felt kind of lonely and sad after work today, but now I feel a lot better and, knowing that food and booze (and Breaking Bad) is coming, ecstatic! So, that's sorted. I know how to spoil myself. :P
My Grandma's hot chocolate mix (Probably the best stocking stuffer I have ever received. Actually second place, after the amazing beer bread mix she gave us...): The cocoa powder is a bit overpowering. The whipped cream adds sweetness and foaminess. The marshmallows in it are a bit annoying. I wonder if Grandma (who is a bit anti-vegetarian) purposefully put it in the mix, knowing that I am vegetarian and it contains gelatin. I've decided to drink the mix anyway because I need to use it up and gelatin isn't as bad as meat because it is more of byproduct than the actual product and it's harder to abstain from because it's in literally all candy. The flavour is richer and sweeter at the bottom, where all the marshmallows have crowded together. I think the marshmallows dominate the flavour too much. The marshmallows at the bottom actually taste pretty good, but I won't eat the dregs with a spoon. That's enough senseless pig's skin and bones-eating for today, thanks. I hope I don't sound too condescending towards meat-eaters. I don't mean to come across that way, but it's harder to tell what my writing tone is when I'm high. I respect everyone's diet, even if I disagree with it.
Crispy Minis (Buttered Popcorn flavour): Mmmmm.... I love the flavour and texture of this. Certain rice cakes have more flavour than others and when you eat those you can really taste the butter flavour. They occasionally have a tang of sweetness to them. They're so good I'm eating the little chunks at the bottom of the bowl, and very messily, I might add.
Grand Marnier: Highly complex and interesting flavour. It's sweet and sends warmth up my nose. It tastes like candy, cherries, syrup and alcohol. Unlike rum or vodka or tequila, it's sweetness overpowers the bitterness of alcohol so it tastes delicious and it still has the same alcoholic content as more bitter hard liquors. Perfect. Very tasty.
Goodnight, people! Tomorrow, I'm sure I will have another equally delicious set of dishes to consume for your vicarious pleasure.
Next time: we eat all the parents who have sex loud enough for the kids to hear it. *shudders*
