I suppose a milestone

Today I made a cheesecake. It has bananas in it because I had some bananas that needed to go somewhere. But I made it all myself, with things I had. And it is as good as many I have bought. (Still not as good as Juniors, but that is a high bar.)

And the best part is, I did not need to look anything up. I just eyeballed and went. I had the ricotta, and egg yolks, and sugar and bananas, and I made a crust of matzoh meal and butter. And that was it.

It set up nice, and turned gold on top. It did not crack, but it holds its shape when you cut it. No oozing.

So-- I am happy.

No writing today, but hey, cheesecake!

The comfort/pride/pleasure value of food is not to be underestimated.

I would happily feed cheesecake to any wandering mariners and medical fellows, if they want to come by.

I would love to invite myself to come and eat at your house one day :)

You are totally invited. Anytime. I love making food to feed people. (My own family is zooming in all directions--- they eat, but they do not really notice.
