No! no abandone mi blog para siempre, solo que he estado un poco dispersa por otros motivos... Lo peor ha pasado, ahora soy doctora y ya estoy lista para irme a Londres, si no fuera por problemas burocráticos/administrativos ya estaría allá de hecho, pero bueno no hay mal que por bien no venga. La semana pasada tuve que vaciar mi departamento, limpiarlo y dejarlo para que otra persona pasara lindos momentos en ella. La verdad que es difícil dejar atrás cosas tan queridas, es increíble como uno se encariña con cosas materiales. Yo veía mi casa vacía y esperaba a que llegara la responsable de la inmobiliaria para darle MIS llaves y me sentí muy triste.
Después de todo... cuando la casa esta vacía, pierde un poco su alma, pierde su personalidad y las cosas se hacen mas fáciles. Ademas me esperan otras cosas hermosas por vivir y muchos brownies mas por cocinar... Lo importante es que estos 5 años los tendré bien guardaditos en mi corazón, y me harán sonreír cada vez que piense en ellos.
No! I didn't give up on this blog, I had some other things going on in my life that made me a little bit absent-minded for what comes to this blog. But the worst is fortunately over! I am a doctor now ;) and I am ready to go to London. In fact I would already be there if it wasn't for bureaucracy/ administration issues... Anyways, last week I emptied my flat, cleaned it and of course left it for someone else to live a great life in it. It is unbelievable how difficult is to leave all this behind, and how we get attached to material things like a flat. I was there waiting for the landlord to arrive to give him MY keys, watching that empty apartment that was once my home, and I felt sad...
While I was emptying my cupboard... an extremely difficult task and that thanks to my mommy it became muuuch easier, I realized that I had plenty of chocolate. I love chocolate but I actually rarely prepare chocolate cakes, I don't know why... Anyways, I didn't want to spare such appealing dark Cahier chocolate, and so all my books went to London in the moving except for one: ¨The great book of chocolate¨ of David Levovitz that as its name claims... it has all recipes about chocolate. It is an excellent but, until now non of the recipes I made out of it failed. I wanted to prepare the simplest chocolate cake I could find, and then I saw this brownie recipe. Oh god it is good! I only used what I had available and I didn't put hazelnuts and pecan that honestly it would have been better. However this brownie 100% chocolate is a real delight for chocolate lovers. A good recipe to sweeten bitter moments.
After all... when the house is empty, it looses somehow its soul, its personality and looking at it that way, make things easier. Besides there are so many good things awaiting me, so many great moments to live and too many more brownies to prepare... The important thing is to keep these years very well kept in my heart. And I will always smile thinking about it.
