Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

Overproofing. Good for bourbon, bad for buns.

Good news. I don't have a rotator cuff tear.  Bad news: I might have a nerve injury.  Worse news: the way to diagnose a nerve injury is a an EMG.  Whilst Googling away, I discovered this youtube video which made me feel a lot less anxious.  I love how Dr. Smolinski jauntily places the needle in his own bicep!  Of course he's in the Army!  

My cardamom buns got slightly overproofed because I forgot to turn the oven off after setting it to the lowest temp.  Much of the butter leaked out as well.  I gave the better batch to the PT clinic and sent the one pictured with Sophie.  I figured a bunch of XC runners on a bus to Manhattan fall into the "beggars can't be choosers" category.  She will be gone <48 hours, but this is the list of food she packed:  the buns, 14 old-fashioned donuts, 2 apples, a pear, a peach, a granola bar, a large bag of cheddar popcorn, a ziplock bag of cereal, a granola bar,  half-eaten bags of Swedish fish and chocolate covered almonds, an airline snack leftover from Ian's latest trip, a mostly eaten bag of Oreos, 2 bottles of tea and a bottle of sports drink. She wanted to make sure I gave her enough money to buy "meals."  Additionally, she is hoping to make a stop at Momofuku Milk Bar.  Her glycogen stores will be on fleek.

The full manti.

The fabric of our lives.
