Good morning. Technically, I slept. If you add up all the bits and fits, that is.
And off to PT in an hour. Ugh yech. I did a lot yesterday and after Sunday at my mom's? A superior posterior ilia-something is *done*. Stick a fork in me. It might feel bette than this;-)
So what the hell is "bavarian cream"? Basically, a custard, except it's not. Add gelatin, fold carefully into whipped cream (really carefully) and your custard is now "Bavarian cream". Whereas Boston cream is the same, but uses cornstarch instead of gelatin. And if it isn't cooked, it's not a true custard to start.
Then how does a "creme Bavarois" differ from a mousse?
Bavarois --- or Bavarian cream --- is always molded, always a dessert, and always sweetened. Mousse, by contrast, can be served in any way (in a dish, molded, as a filling, whatever) and can be a non-dessert --- think pureed creamed organ meat, to be blunt --- and often starts as raw egggs, rather than a cooked custard base.
Or you can just make boxed JellO pudding and fold in a contaier of Cool Whip, which is my MIL's idea of "cooking". (I shudder, I admit.)
Bored yet? Hey, I had to bake a birthday cake yesterday. This stuff is in my life. And, no, I didn't get to do a mousse or Bavarian cream or even a plain custard. *sigh* Meringue? No. *sigh* Nobody lets me have enough fun. Of course, since my arm broke early this year, my right hand wearies easily, and that's that. I may have to cave in and use --- argh --- a stand mixer. My ancestresses are gonna haunt me.
DJ Larsen pitched the first perfect game in World Series historytoday in 1956, and he played for 7 teams in his major league career. Detroit, New YOrk, Athletics (then in Philly) and what became the Baltimore Orioles (previously the Browns, and yes, that's another instance of a team named "the Browns" moving to Baltimore and becoming a bird-mascoted team)... and a few others, before going back to the minors.
In a nice historical bookend, Yogi Berra day at the Yankees featured Larsen throwing the first pitch --- to Berra --- and that day? The Yankees' pitcher had a perfect game.
Off to limp to PT. Terrific Tuesday, all.
