I don't want to jinx it, but I did feel MUCH better yesterday, almost like a REAL person and not a sneezing machine.
Prior to this lovely cold visiting me, I thought to make my famous white chocolate cheesecake for Christmas. Trouble was, you can only get the wonderful chocolate at Trader Joe's, a mere 45 miles away.
I opted for a variety from Safeway, only 30 miles away. Once made, I couldn't remember if I needed to bake it in a hot water bath or not, and of course there was no mention on the recipe from my Chef friend.
I can now tell you, the answer is YES. I thought it looked a little "heavy" when it came out of the oven after 1-1/2 hours at 250. Once cooled, it went in the freezer. Being sick, my brain wasn't really working well when I decided it just might cure my cold.
I was wrong ... it didn't cure anything. It was in fact so heavy it would have broken my foot had I dropped it. It had no white chocolate taste, although I chock that up to being sick. My taste buds are pretty much on vacation. If it was swimming in cherry pie filling, it might be edible. Maybe I should try Overnight Oats instead.
THIS is my thank you for shopping Walmart. A free gift if you will. Overnight oats? Never heard of it. I read the directions. Pour in milk (or milk substitute) ... I'm not kidding, that's what it said ... and place in the refrigerator overnight for a wonderful chilled breakfast in the morning.
Who the heck wants a COLD CHILLED breakfast? Certainly not me. I want something hot and steamy. I'm pretty sure this product will be an epic fail. What were they thinking?
Truthfully, it probably wouldn't matter what I ate. I couldn't even taste the grilled cheese sandwich I made yesterday.
I'm pretty sure coughing and the accompanying sore stomach muscles are on their way. I'm hoping it passes as fast as everything else did, since tomorrow is BINGO night. I would call in sick, but the Castle Lawyer is out of town the entire month of December.
I'll be back on the couch .... after I go buy a bottle of Vicks!
