New Year’s Eve

I spent the first half of the day with my Talented & Lovely Girlfriend.  Our project for the day was making a Brazilian cheese bread called Pao de Queijo.  Nom nom nom.  Our batch made 72 of them;  we made a reference 28g doughball with aid of the gram scale.

She had to be elsewhere this evening so the both of us are resting and reading on the respective Kindles.  I’ve been sick for a few days (including a missed day of work) so a quiet night is probably best.

The extent of my NYE wildness is I made 500ml of Japanese gen mai cha, a green tea with roasted rice.  My understanding was that it was a traditional peasant/farmer tea, since the rice adjunct made it less expensive.  It is my favorite kind of tea although not easy to find.  I bought a couple pounds from an Asian market when I lived in Richardson where such things were more common.
