I've been watching too much Top Chef. Remember on Top Chef Just Desserts when they split the contestants into two teams and then gave them each a task in one of the Quick Fire challenges? Well I do. And apparently it's been on the back of my mind. Because last Saturday I got the crazy idea to whip some cream by hand to make a topping for a pecan pie Don had bought.
There are two words to describe this. OUCH and YUM.
Holy schnikes. Whipping cream by hand hurts. My biceps and forearm were like - WOOAH! But if I did this all the time my right arm might just look like this:
Of course if I make whipped cream all the time and then EAT it. I will look like this:
Good thing I don't eat desserts that much.
For those of you thinking of having whipped cream on Thanksgiving, I say go for it! Assign this job to one of the men hanging out in the living room. Make them flex a few muscles instead of just sitting there all comfy watching you sweat in the kitchen.
Good luck. And let me know how it goes!
