For those of you that aren’t playing the home game, I’ve been in the process of catching up with Dr. Who. It’s taken me a few months to get through season 5, but I finally did last week. Not only that, but we’ve been recording season 6 from BBC America so that when I did finally get through season 5 we’d be ready!
Also, Stella has been working through here 40×40 list, and thought Dr. Who night would be a great time to clear another **2 items** from her list; cooking all of the 10 most difficult recipes according to Epicurious. On for last night were numbers 6 and 8, paella and baked alaska.
And they turned out **AMAZING**. To be truthful, at least according to Stella, paella wasn’t that hard. She does make an amazing risotto, and paella is pretty close to the same thing. And the baked alaska, something I wasn’t sure I was going to like because of the merengue topping, but it was delicious. Cold ice cream, warm strawberry sauce and crispy merengue. It was delightful.
As for Dr. Who, we watched the Matt Smith Christmas Episode with friends. I liked it and am excited for the next 2 episodes. We also watched the latest Castle, another show that I’ve enjoyed since it started, and this season is shaping up to be another great one!
