Juice

Or to be more specific, PUMPKIN JUICE!

I still haven't figured out how to fix the date and time. :P

     You may not know this, unless you're a member of my family, but I am absolutely OBSESSED with all things Harry Potter. I spend most of my time reading Harry Potter fanfics while hoping for more stories from J.K. Rowling. In the books and most of the fanfics they mention that Pumpkin Juice is served in The Great Hall and on The Hogwart's Express. I've been wanting to try it for a while and thanks to the folks at www.thedisneydiner.com I now have the recipe, which is here: http://www.thedisneydiner.com/2013/09/pumpkin-juice-recipe-from-wizarding.html. They also have a video on how to make it which I will post below. It had a sort of froth on top when I first made it because of the blender but now that its been in the fridge for most of the day its settled and looks like regular mixed juice. I have to say, I'm honestly surprised how it turned out. It's way better than I was expecting. Although its not very pumpkiny tasting. If I'm paying attention I can sometimes taste a hint of pumpkin but that's about it. I think next time I'll add a bit more pumpkin and see what that does to it. But it is very good how it is. If it doesn't turn out with adding more pumpkin I'll still be happy with the taste it currently has. It's sweet but not too sweet and its tangy and cinnamony all at once. Yes, I'm happy. ^_^



(And if you're wondering, those are dinosaur chicken nuggets on the plate behind my pumpkin juice.)

[Update: I made another batch but added more pumpkin this time. It didn't really change the flavor, it made the juice kinda grainy though, so I think I'll just stick to the recipe from now on.]

Let It Go

     Hello, it has been quite a while hasn't it? There hasn't really been much going on with me. Still a hermit. I think I've left the house 3, maybe 4 times since I moved here (in December). I found a video of a cover of the song "Let It Go" from the movie Frozen that I wanted to share.

Isn't he so talented? Some of those voices are just spot on.

Here's a preview of an Elsa fanart pic that I'm working on.
I still need to tweak it a bit and color it. I'll be sure to post it once it is finished. ☺
