Drool for me monkey boy!

2004-08-11 - 11:21 p.m.

Today was my first day back at work and the first day that both my new boss and I have been in the office at the same time. Needless to say, it was pretty busy. After work I ended up subbing for another instructor before my own class so I had to grab a bite to eat, head straight for one gym, then zip on over to my own gym after that.

It was just as well I had the extra class today – J and I went to Quebec City for our first anniversary this past weekend and, man, I feel totally tubbed out this week. I have three words to describe the earthly incarnation of evil I faced and vanquished on two, count ‘em, TWO separate occasions:

Strawberry.

Cheese.

Pie.

Pies aren’t that bad for you – they’re full of fruit right? Now this pie, this is a pie of a different stripe. It’s like the bastard love child of a cheesecake and a strawberry pie. Picture, if you will, a pie crust; a lovely, crunchy, blind-baked shortbread pie crust. Now put a smooth, creamy, rich, cheesecake-y layer. Not too thick! Only, maybe an inch or so – enough to only half-fill the crust. On top of that, layer a thick layer of fresh strawberries glazed with that gooey sweet gelatin you see on fruit tarts. Now cut a generous wedge out of that baby, place it reverently on a plate and then serve with a generous splash of what appeared to be a strawberry puree but may have been a sauce of which the puree was only an ingredient.

Evil I tell you.

More when I get a chance but for now, I'm off to dream of my just desserts.
