    update: could not nap because fly kept landing on my damn face, audio processing is non existent at least for things like words in any language i can understand. brain why okay the 'why' is sleep deprivation, but still.

    why is that the think jelly wants fuel, but instead of going 'please feed me' and making me crave a sugar it instead crashes my ability to audio, gives me a feeling of perpetual aimless emptiness, and stomach cramps

    who designed this, i wanna speak to the manager

    I JSUT REMEMBERED THAT I NEVER DID THIS so here we go, translated from german:

    needs:
    • 250g soft butter
    • 250g sugar
    • 1 satchet vanilin sugar
    • 1 pinch of salt
    • zest and juice from 1 lemon
    • 6 eggs
    • 400g flour
    • 4 tbs of backing powder (~2 satchets, i think)
    • 6-8tbs milk, depending. final dough should 'rip' off a spoon, not flow)
    • cinnamon to taste
    • some sliced almonds for decorating
    • ~7 apples (depending on size of apple) of your fave kind

    do:
    • break out your baking tray, grease and bread-crumb it well. heat oven to 180°C
    • juice your lemon and mix the juice with water. Your apples will go in here so use a bowl that can fit 7 apples. if desired you can add some rum for flavour, too.
    • core and peel your apples, then quarter them and slide them like you would for hassleback potatos, to form a sort of 'fan'. put your apple quarters into the lemon water to sit while the rest happens.
    • beat your sugar with the eggs until foamy, add butter, then cinnamon, salt and lemon zest
    • slowly add flour and baking powder (sifted, ideally) and stir until combined
    • add milk as needed until you get a dough that sticks to your spoon without entirely defying gravity, but also without just flowing off.
    • spread your dough out on the baking tray, shooting for an even layer. then place your apple quarters on top, again shooting for an even spread. if necessary give another apple the treatment. if you're feeling luxurious, you can spread some melted butter on the apples but imo that's just trying to fix perfection and not necessary
    • if used, sprinkle your sliced almonds on top
    • bake for 35-40 minutes or until an inserted wooden skewer comes out clean
    • once out of the oven, dust with powdered sugar and let cool
    • done!

    There's two mirabelle trees in the Hospital garden (one blue one red)

    So guess who's got a Pipeline of free fruit now because otherwise they let them literally rot on the tree

    be careful to check all of those for houseguests tho, mirabelle's attract them a lot, it's why we can't actually eat like any of the million fruits our plum tree decides to produce shittily despite being three quarters dead and rotted through

    honestly, so far not a single one of the mirabelles i got of the tree at home (which is a yellow one) nor the blues i harvested had any sort of protein side dish included. Maybe it's just been a bad year for them down here but it's delightful for me.

    That sounds like a good plan. Do you have any self-care lined up for tonight?

    Alas i am at work (oncall) so i just gotta deal. I sewed a bunch because it's meditative and a better coping mechanism than the other options. Selfcare will happen tomorrow, i hope.
