Yesterday when I was working on the novel, I realized OH MY GOSH I was having fun. Like, I couldn't wait to write the next sentence. And I thought I should make note, because mostly I whine about how hard writing is and how mostly I want to just put my head in the oven. Only my oven isn't very clean.
Shelley gave me permission to make this blog be what I want it to be, so yeah. I'm going to talk about what I eat. Yesterday I ate one of my "benchmark food" items. Explanation: I have several food things I try WHEREVER I go because Scientists of Eating like myself enjoy having a basis for comparison. My benchmark foods are these--chile rellanoes, potato salad, cole slaw, french fries, fry sauce, and key lime pie. I'm thinking about adding fish tacos.
Anyway. I had key lime pie at Rumbi's. It was pretty good. The texture was firm and smooth, which I liked. It didn't taste overly of sweetened condensed milk (which always reminds me of the first lemon pie I made in the fifth grade). But it was a tad bland and the crust (although looking great) was soggy.
I'm sure you're thrilled to know this.
