Internet is finally back up at Casa Angie, albeit temporarily, and sanity is restored. It took many days of calling and complaining before our house was equipped with a temporary cable line. The husband is unhappy about the service.
Now there’s a visible above-ground cable line that starts from one end of the neighbor’s lawn to ours. Yay, that’s just great! ← In case you mistook my meaning, that’s sarcasm, by the way. The husband can’t even mow the lawn!
The last technician they sent over warned that it may take as long as 14 business days before the permanent, underground cable can be replaced. Which, in my estimation, is likely to be more like… never! ← Okay, that’s another sarcasm. I just hope this thing will be resolved SOON!
Anyway, while I was sulking and waiting around for wifi to come back on, I had my sourdough working again and this time I made these:
Chinese steamed buns, y’all! With sourdough!
Now I can’t claim they were a raging success. They were a little too dense for my liking, but they were tasty. Any pointers on how to make them fluffier? Let me know!
Now let’s take a look at these:
“Lemon and Lime curd is a favorite but I love the tip to add orange juice.” — Liz
“I, too, love lemon or lime curd. But adding orange juice in the mix is ingenious!” — Angie
“She had me once I saw the beautiful roses on top of these delicious and unusual cupcakes.” — Liz
“Oh wow, Boston Cream Pie Cupcakes! They sound delectable, and how pretty are they!” — Angie
“Shortbread is a much-beloved cookie, this time with dried raspberries and white chocolate…oh my!” — Liz
“I was impressed by the meticulous research into the history of these, I love learning about other cultures. ” — Liz

Oh my god, Angie! Can this weeks party get any better?? You guys featured my cupcakes! Thanks so so much. And thank god your internet is back! Sounds awfull to have that visible cable hanging at your house but at least there’s internet. Hope they will fix it sooner than those 14 business days.
3rd amazing thing about this fiesta: Jhuls is co-hosting! I’m in a real party mood, girls! Let’s grab a glass and some food 😉
Aaw… you’re welcome, Sarah! I really love the idea of the Boston Cream Pie cupcakes. They just sound so scrumptious. I hope the cable company doesn’t make us wait for 14 business days, seriously. Don’t want to think what our lawn will look like by then!
Ha, it’ll be a jungle for sure! They probably think: it’s a pandemic, nobody goes outside so who’s gonna see it? Uhm, the people that live there, dear cable company! xD

Awww thanks for featuring my curd. And thanks for hosting.
I’m impressed with the idea of sourdough steamed buns! I wonder if they can be de-glutened?!
Have a good week x
Love lemon curd so much! And adding orange juice? That’s brilliant!
Oh I’m pretty sure you can de-gluten steamed buns. And maybe they might even get fluffier using GF flour. You should give it a try!
Jhuls | The Not So Creative Cook says
Omg! I couldn’t imagine even one hour without internet connection. I hope your internet comes back permanently! I am excited to co-host this week. Happy Fiesta Friday, Angie!♥️?
I hope so too, Jhuls. Or else, as Sarah said, my lawn will start to look like a jungle ? Thanks for cohosting!
Hey Jhuls, I tried sending you emails twice, but they both failed to deliver. And I can’t leave comments on your posts either. Maybe check your settings and/or your spam folder.
