    We have a place here that just does pies and they are amazing. Pumpkin pie made from pie pumpkins, flaky, butter crusts. Awesome strawberry pies. I have a good friend who is a baker and makes AMAZING cakes, all from scratch. I'm having her make Tristan's birthday cake later this year to look like The Doctor's TARDIS. I'm also a pretty kick ass pastry baker. If we ever win the lotto, I would go back to school for that.

    Note to self...visit Geo...not for the pie/cake...no, that is just a nice bonus.

    Off to a work BBQ today and then a play tonight...some Indiana Jones spoof thing...no idea.

    [QUOTE=cori93437;1194151I want it to say "real cream" and "vanilla bean" when describing creme brulee dammit. Or "mascarpone" when the dessert is tiramisu, because 99.9% of places fake it!
    Bleh.[/QUOTE]

    Ohhhhhhhh (almost orgasmic groan)... Tiramisu! There was this tiny little place behind my skyscraper office building back in Frankfurt that was the restaurant of an Italian family, and they made homemade tiramisu, just not in the summer months. The good stuff. It is still the taste I compare everything else tiramisu to. The mama was forever yelling at everybody else (her family - family all worked there) for god-knows-what, as I don't speak Italian, but would whip right around and smile at the customers and give them whatever they wanted. Place was always packed. Sigh.

    Nameless, you gotta travel. I have had Belgian waffles during strawberry season in Luxembourg and pan au chocolate fresh from the bakery in Paris, and Black Forest cake in Bavaria, and Sachertorte in Vienna, among other things, and it is all soooo worth it, and nothing like what gets served over here.

    But you know what I missed a lot during my years in Europe from home?? Cheesecake and vanilla bean ice cream. Gelato is spectacularly awesome, but a good old Breyer's style real vanilla bean is almost impossible to find.
    I have a mantra that I have spouted for years... "If I eat right, I feel right. If I feel right, I exercise right. If I exercise right, I think right. If I think right, I eat right..." Phil-SC

    doesn't sound like a bad idea...most things are better filled with chocolate.

    The weekend was good. Friday night graduation was well done and K's friend was glad we showed up. Saturday we had a work BBQ and then went to a play. It was a spoof called "Arizona Jones and the Skull of Doom" Frankly, it was funny as hell. They didn't take themselves seriously and played off well when things messed up.

    For example, there is a part where the hero is fighting a gorilla (a very badly done gorilla suit) and in the next scene his little sidekick comes out and still has one gorilla foot on (actor playing both roles). They start going and he notices the foot and stops with the rest of the cast trying not to laugh and says, "Oh...uh, yeah...lucky monkey paw. I wondered where I left that." then he took it off and tossed it off stage and they continued on as if nothing had happened.

    Shows like that are AWESOME.
    I need to figure out when I'm going to our local summer vaudeville soon.

    Moments like that are what my high school drama teacher called "picking up the button." He saw a big production of some play and a button fell off someone's costume. It was very obvious to the audience, and one of the actors on stage saw it. They made up an action or a line to make it seem like it was supposed to happen, picked it up, and moved on.
