Y’see, a picture is worth a thousand words. The NaNoWriMo word target is fifty thousand. That means our IntPiPoMo target is fifty pictures, over the thirty days of November…. you can post pictures of whatever you like – doesn’t even have to be WoW related.
I didn’t participate last year, but I thought I’d give it a try this year.
Today is Day of the Dead in WoW, a holiday loosely based on the traditional Mexican celebration of the same name.
I made some real Pan de Muertos today, using the Diana Kennedy recipe, more or less — I made a half-recipe, used one whole egg for every two egg yolks, and added anise seeds.
It’s a delightfully soft, tender bread with a subtle flavor. The dark color comes from brushing the dough with egg yolk immediately before putting it in the oven, and the grainy surface texture comes from brushing the loaf with melted butter and then sprinkling it with sugar immediately after removing it from the oven.
