Too Many Eggs



Yesterday I noticed I had too many eggs. My overly producing chickens haven't noticed yet that it's winter,  it's cold and they should slow down. Since even after giving away a lot of them, the eggs were still too many, I decided to make an eggs-consuming cake, here we call it Torta Margherita or Pan di Spagna (Spanish bread). It requires 8 eggs,  300gr of potato starch,  300gr of sugar, half an orange's juice, baking powder, some cinnamon,  dried vanilla and grated orange skin. I whipped the whites with half of the sugar till hard. 20160111_182437.thumb.jpg.2ead698c6d2accThen I whipped the yolks with the other half of the sugar till they doubled and became creamy and whitish. I mixed them together in a very big bowl carefully stirring with slow bottom-up movements. 20160111_183927.thumb.jpg.e6ab495005c2b2I added the sifted potato starch bit by bit always carefully stirring as before. At the end I added a pinch of baking powder,  half an orange juice, a pich of cinnamon,  vanilla and the orange skin. Mixed carefully as before. 20160111_184836.thumb.jpg.5b9838cc037368 Then I cooked it in the static oven at 180ºC  for an hour. It's important to start with a cold oven, turning it on only after putting the cake inside. After an hour I checked if it was ready and then left it on a grid to cool down. The result is a very big cake that lasts for days (not in my home ;)),20160112_110522.thumb.jpg.8d2e7e21b2906a  best eaten with any sort of tea or caffelatte. If you want to reduce the doses you must half everything and use 4 eggs.

      At this point I don't think he would. He's already sacrificed what little time with his children he had left and keeps extending his time away from them. They've raised so much money that I'm incredulous they haven't brought the children. What's another few thousand when you've already grifted ~$50,000? (I'm not saying they'd be able to see him much but right now they're not seeing him at all)

      Most people would live life differently if they knew how much time they have left. We don't know how time he has left either. Even if his doctors have a prediction, I've known many people who outlived predictions.

      They will lie to him until there is no more money to be extracted.

      I wonder how much time he has left.  Yes, that's a morbid thought, but if he knew maybe it would entice him to go home and spend it with all the family.

      The main medication from what I've gleaned is over the counter Tylenol.  That does not go in my experience with someone anywhere near as sick as they claim.  Things do not add up medically just like the grift and the moving expenses don't make good sense.  I know they claim they were approved for disability, but these disorders are subjective and considerably based on patient reporting.  As in I'm feeling "exhausted" and I'm in extra pain right now.  However, I am NOT going to bed.  I'm going to finish cooking lunch, eat it, wash the dishes, and then put my feet up.  Yep I'm going to keep living life through the pain and the tired/weak feeling.  I had extra time in the yard watering everything deeply as I'm going back to LA for treatment tomorrow.
