Today’s the day of my organic chemistry final exam. Wish me luck, I’m going to need to it. But then that means I go home tomorrow, for a whole summer! I’m really excited. I am excited to see my dog, first and foremost, of course. I’m also excited to hang out with my family, have fresh fruit available to me, to have a real kitchen again, watch the Nightly News every night, not have homework, and for playing horse on the basketball court across the street from my house in those wonderful summer evenings.
But before that, I have to synthesize several molecules, determine the acid base chemistry of several reactions, figure out the configuration of a molecule based on its nuclear magnetic resonance spectrum, and much more. All in three hours. Like I said, I’ll need all the luck I can get.
All of you on the other hand can instead focus on my mouthwatering images of Mixed Berry Galette with Cornmeal Crust! The fruit is the most important part of any galette, of course. However, in this galette, I think the cornmeal is the best part. Cornmeal is like a very coarse flour, so it makes the crust very crumbly and crisp at the same time. I think it worked very well.
This is the last draft I have saved in WordPress, meaning I actually made this tart back in March but I saved it to post now. After this, I will be home baking up a storm and posting fresh recipes from those endeavors. I have to start updating my Pinterest boards! Ah, a baker’s pastimes: baking, photography, and Pinterest. Happy baking!
