So my 20th adventure was a bit of a flop, maybe more than a bit. I took a macaroon baking class, and in general I am good in the kitchen, but these macaroons were gross and ugly. They were little the undesirable of the undesirable. Usually, when I make something that is visually unappealing, I can comfort myself that it still tastes good. That was not the case with these macaroons. I cannot begin to describe how gross they tasted. I don't know if we somehow messed up the batter or if my filling/shell ratio was off, or if I am just not a macaroon person.
This past weekend I had a holiday outing with my college roommate, Julie. Julie and I have known each other since we were 16, and lived together 3 out of the 4 years of college. Our senior year we also lived with Amanda, our guest during the Gasthaus post! We had an amazing time in college, and occasionally I think it would be a blast to go back to living in college housing ... and then I remember that I am old and would barely last a night any more. Pretty much, every year since we graduated, Julie and I meet up for dinner and some sort of activity - with the aim of keeping our friendship strong and relevant. This year, we met in Frankfort for a pottery class! For an extremely reasonable rate, 2 artistically challenged people learned how to make some pottery, but it's probably more accurate to say that we learned how to make pottery with significant amounts of help.
Happy Thursday! Hope you are enjoying the start of fall, I know I am! Though, fall in Louisville seems to have gotten off to a slow start...but since I am not a fan of winter, I can't say I am complaining too much! The warm fall has been advantageous for my adventure quest, as my latest adventure took me wandering through downtown as a participant in a street photography class. I didn't realize it at the time, though why I didnt realize it I really cannot say, but the goal of the class was to provide tips and tricks into expanding your passion and skill in street photography. Since the class was title "street photography, " I probably should have caught on, but alas I did not.
