Last night I put all of my extra down time to good use, by baking up a batch of coconut macaroons to give the dancers as a little congratulatory treat in honor of the opening of Sleeping Beauty tonight. The little confections were sticky, fragrant and fun to make, and the end result yielded a pile of perfectly golden brown, crisp, mini-domes of sweet coconut goodness. To add an extra level of decadence, I decided to half-dip the airy little cookies in chocolate. Is your mouth watering yet?
So, my fellow dancers, my colleagues, my friends, my ballet family- Merde, and bon appétit!
What do you do on lazy days when the outlet mall shopping idea gets rained out? You make a trip to whole foods, take a nap, bake coconut macaroons (read: sleep while your roommate bakes), and shop at the only store that’s open 24/7 rain or shine…the internet. Tonight, the roommie and I are off to Sakura for a sushi fix, then it’s on to the movies to see the newest Nicholas Spark’s film, The Lucky One, starring none other than theeee Zac Efron. Nothing like a dinner/movie date with your bestie to cap off sunday funday! I’ll leave you with this:…he’s so gorgeous I’m not even embarrassed.
