One of the greatest websites in the world is FoodPornDaily. When you're sad or depressed and sick of reading books, watching movies, or listening to music (but who actually gets tired of these things?), go there. I'm at the basement of the school library catching up on sociology Powerpoint slides when I realize how hungry I am. I can't eat at the library because I have a peanut butter sandwich which can definitely overwhelm the entire library with the smell (what happens if someone is allergic to peanuts and can smell peanut butter, would they choke and die like that girl on the news did when her boyfriend ate some peanuts and they kiss [with tongue!] and she dies choking or something). Anyway, I'm letting people survive their day without the smell of peanut butter whereas I'm dying with hunger. Well, I can grab that orange out of the bag, but oranges smell kind of citrusy. How would the ladies around me feel when they smell it? Cheez-its are also in my lunch bag, but I'm kind of lactose intolerant so I may fart and everyone around me may die from the odor. I don't want to kill anyone. :(
Anyway, like I mentioned above, I'm starving and want to take a break from studying so I decided to go on FoodPornDaily. The featured photo of the day is the photo above. Doesn't this look delightful? Oh gosh, Chocolate filled buns! Oh gosh, I'm dying just looking at it. I feel compelled to get something like this. Chocolate filled croissants, maybe? This reminds me, I should have bought those delicious looking chocolate filled croissants for $1.50 when I was at 85 Degrees Bakery and Cafe (only franchise in the West Coast of USA) down at Irvine. It looked so good, but I just ate a huge bowl of Kimchi Ramen at Ajisen Ramen (chain restaurant; there's two around home-- down at San Gabriel and Temple City) and you know me, I won't buy something unless I plan on eating it in the near future. So, I got a small egg pudding tart (just like an asian egg tart) for $1.50. I left it in my small bag and forgotten about if for about 2 hours. It was crushed when I finally ate it, but it was so delicious. Oh gosh, am I craving it? Such a rip off since we can get 3 egg tarts (that are just as delicious when fresh) at Yum Cha Cafe (located in many SF Superstores around Southern California) for about a $1.50.
Anyway, there's a recipe on the original person's blog. Now, I really hope that Daddy does get a chance to remodel our kitchen or at least get a working oven. We never used the oven at home. Essentially, what I am saying is that I don't know how to bake. So, I'm 20 years old and for the last twenty years, I baked at home. I go to people's homes and "help" bake, but I'm such a klutz that I ruin everything. It will definitely be nice to waste my own supplies at home and learn how to bake.
