I need a serious, mind-consuming, all-I-can-focus-on-at-once-is-eating-this dessert, kind of dessert.u00c2u00a0 Sorry for all the hyphens.u00c2u00a0 But, this weekend something rather bad happened and I need something to take my mind off of it.
I threw a load of laundry into the washer Saturday morning, thinking it would be a weekend day, like any other.u00c2u00a0 As the washer finished and I loaded the clothes into the dryer.u00c2u00a0 I started the machine, and by the increased noise level realized that the exhaust vent was no longer connected properly.u00c2u00a0 How did that happen, you ask?u00c2u00a0 You remember my little Izzy montage from last Hop Day, the one where she was obsessed with getting behind the washer?u00c2u00a0 Well, I shifted the dryer to keep that from happening, and I guess I shifted it a little too much.u00c2u00a0 So I tried to shift it back.u00c2u00a0 And the top detached.u00c2u00a0 Then the top of the front panel.u00c2u00a0 Um…oops.
Also, it turns out the appliances were put into the laundry room before the door frame was set, so the dryer is too big to fit through the door.u00c2u00a0 Thanks previous owners.u00c2u00a0 Now we either have to call a carpenter to get the door frame removed/widened before we can get a new dryer, or hope that this problem is somehow repairable.u00c2u00a0 I know I shouldn’t complain, it’s just a dryer, and when I lived in Taiwan we had no dryer and it was 120% humidity every day and my clothes took a week to dry, but still.u00c2u00a0 I just like clean laundry…
So, yeah, I definitely need like 6 of these crème brulees, like, right now.
They may seem like your average bruleed custard, but underneath the classic shell is an under layer of cookie dough.u00c2u00a0 Oh man.u00c2u00a0 It’s as amazing as it sounds.
Just what I need to get me through this trying time.u00c2u00a0 Happy Monday!
