Random Rambling

I had something I wanted to write. Now I've forgotten. So a few random bits...

Best conversation of the day:
    Me: Hi
    Seth: Hi
    Me: So...what time did you get to work today?
    Seth: uh....6:15?
    Me: So I feel like that was kind of early.
    Seth: Yeah...
    Me: So I feel like that means you can leave kind of early.
    Seth: yeeeeeessss.....
    Me: So I feel like you should go to BJ's.
    Seth: Sure thing. What do you need?
    Me: Nine Million eggs.
    Seth: Nine million eggs?
    Me: Yup. I feel like I need nine million eggs.
    Seth: Sure thing. I'll leave after my IT Walkthrough (or whatever he said...honestly, I stopped listening after I ascertained that he was going to do what I asked without even knowing why.)


My guess is that he will come home with something less than nine million eggs, but probably plenty for me to work with.

Other things I need to write about:
* thunderstorm last night
* Jewish Braille Institute
* Julian and the sprinkler (complete with pictures!)
* food for shavuos (though that would be easier to write about if I had, you know, menus)
* other stuff, I'm sure.

Current Mood: chipper chipper

That depends - did you specify chicken eggs?

I did not, but BJs does not carry any other kind and Seth is the law abiding kind, so he's not likely to just grab some woman with healthy-looking ovaries off the street.

EW.

I doubt if he'd need to grab her, if he thought to bring Julian with him. Julian is probably a babe magnet, and they'd follow his cuteness anywhere.

a very fine point.

estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 8th, 2005 02:55 pm (UTC) (Link)
Sounds good. Shabbos doesn't start until 8, though we can probably manage to bring it in early if that's better for you. Not sure yet what other company we've got. Anyway, you can come anytime and you should bring yourself.
cleobatya From: cleobatya Date: June 8th, 2005 03:47 pm (UTC) (Link)
i will bring myself. :P im so excited.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 8th, 2005 04:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Just a reminder that you are more than welcome to spend the night, particularly if it gets to be too late. I won't be shocked if you leave in the morning. Honest.
cleobatya From: cleobatya Date: June 8th, 2005 04:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
hah i might do that. :D

9 million eggs? What are you planning to do? Bake yourself into a quiche?
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 7th, 2005 09:26 pm (UTC) (Link)
okay, so perhaps I was exaggerating.

I was trying to figure out meals for Shavuos. Since I'm feeling uninspired in terms of actual menu-planning, I was trying to figure out various dishes to make. The limiting factor is I have someone coming who can't eat wheat. She's just got a sensitivity, not an allergy, so she can eat around crusts and things like that, but it's still limiting. So I was thinking of things to make and I figured I'd at least make a few quiches. Well, that's fine, but then I remembered I had no eggs left. So I was thinking about other things like kugels and such. Still more eggs I don't have. And latkes. Still more eggs I don't have. Chocolate Mousse? Still more eggs I don't have. And so on. So I didn't know how many eggs I needed other than "a lot." I figured "nine million" covered "a lot" quite sufficiently. ;)

You could make a swimming pool full of quiche with 9 million eggs. But what would you bake it in?

If you make a frittata - I don't think they require a crust, so that might be an option for your friend.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 7th, 2005 09:37 pm (UTC) (Link)
frittata was my first idea, which I decided against because I prefer fritatta fresh, and I want to make it ahead. Which is how I got around to quiche. She's pretty good with quiche. She just doesn't eat the crust. I always have salad, fruit salad, etc. and depending on whether it's a meat or dairy meal, I have chicken salad, or tuna salad, or egg salad at most lunches. And meat meals are no problem with her anyway, because I make rice and chicken and veggies and fruit salad and green salad and she's set. But dairy's harder, though I'm figuring out some options.

If you have time (ha ha), you could make a not-quite-crust from cooked rice, or mashed potatoes, or using ground nuts...
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 8th, 2005 02:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
that's a very good idea. Though I've never quite figured out ground nut crusts. I think that would work best for at least one of the quiches.
magid From: magid Date: June 8th, 2005 03:01 pm (UTC) (Link)
I admit, I haven't made a ground nut crust yet. I think I got the idea from one of the Moosewood cookbooks (the first one, maybe?), which has recipes. I think it's like replacing the flour in a pie crust with ground nuts (and probably using a bit less fat as binder, since they've got oils too). Or something like that.
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 8th, 2005 03:10 pm (UTC) (Link)
Hrm. I only have the moosewood low-fat cookbook, so it's unlikely to be in there. I shall now do some investigating. I'll let you know if I come up with anything.

A quick Google search found a oatmeal and walnut crust (I'd take out the sugar for a quiche, though), and someone else's large number of crust variations (some have flour that could likely be replaced with non-wheat flour).

It's just as well. I'm pretty sure you don't have fridge space for 9 million eggs. Heck, this time of year Nanook of the North can't keep 9 million eggs food-safe, probably.

he came back with 5 dozen, which is close enough for government work.
magid From: magid Date: June 8th, 2005 11:54 am (UTC) (Link)
I love rounding :-)
estherchaya From: estherchaya Date: June 8th, 2005 02:56 pm (UTC) (Link)
yeah, it worked. :)
