Circumstances require that the Pastry clan make a temporary move to St. Louis starting this week. It all has to do with that health situation I mentioned in the late summer. Never fear, all will be well with the particular Pastry in question. The situation simply requires some extended treatment, about a month or so, after which the whole thing should be behind us and we can return to normal life. Or at least as normal as life gets in this day and age.
The plan is to do at least some remote blogging after we get settled. Of course there’s so much to plan to make that happen: grip, wardrobe, lighting, camera, and electric trucks. Props, set dec, SFX, craft services, the list goes on. And then there’s mobile and on-site crews. The union negotiations alone could drag on for weeks. But it’ll all be worth it if I can get at least a couple of projects done while we’re there. Can anyone say gooey butter cake?
So don’t worry, and look for some new content to start going up sometime next week. Those of you who have made investments in dried fruit and spirits for the impending Caribbean Christmas fruitcake project, be at ease. I’ll put up the full recipe before we head out, just in case. That said, I already have a separate production trailer reserved specially for my box of macerating fruit. Woe unto the crewman or production assistant who lets it spill!
We’ll get the xuixos done today I hope, and the tutorial up soon. Maybe late today or tomorrow. So stay tuned and say a little prayer for us if you will. We’re concerned but confident, and anyway, what is life without adventure? So let us go! Boldly onward! – Joe
