i’ve got a terrible guilty pleasure with reality tv shows. sometimes i feel a little too familiar with the happenings of the kardashians. i’ve watched so many episodes of ‘say yes to the dress’ that i feel i could stick my hand into a rack of gowns and pull out my friends’ perfect silhouettes. i can identify and name all of kate gosselin’s children.

my brother makes fun of me for “spending my life watching other people’s lives”, but i don’t mind. i may not go out as much as him, but when i do, i do it big! i’m like the biggest rebel you’ve ever seen. you never met a troublemaker so mean. when you see me rollin’, don’t look for a fight. i stay out husslin’ ’til eight at night.

….okay, not really. but! when i go out with my friends, i sometimes use the opportunity to bake something. it’s a nice good-guest gesture people just cannot deny !! what’s that you say, mother,  it’s hot in the summer and i shouldn’t use the oven, you say? well go fly a kite, because i’m baking for that bbq i’m going to !

and that’s exactly what i did when i went out saturday AND sunday with my friends. on sunday, i left after my family and  i went to taste of danforth, and on saturday, i went after we visited my aunts and cousins… but still! i am pretty badass about hanging out with my homies. word.

for saturday i made those chocolate-banana-marshmallow cakey-things, and for sunday i made pip and ebby’s awesome lemon ice box pie. look at it above! it looks like it’s gravitating, but in reality my friend’s little brother was kindly helping me with my photographing endeavours.

that picture compared to the one below is kind of funny, look at that difference between artificial and natural lighting… ;D

i was short of some ingredients, so halved the lemon portion of the pie, which resulted in lemon ice box pie…bars. which was soo delicious! mind you, if you’re not a huge fan of lemon and its tartness like one of my friends who had a piece, you and the pie might not mingle all that great. but personally, i loved the balance between the sour lemon with the sweeter graham crust. my other friends seemed to like it too :)

we also misplaced out zester contraption somewhere, which meant my sister had to peel some lemon rind and cut it up herself. HAHAHA… such a faithful sister.

the taste of this wonderful creation makes me want to stay at some and watch some tori and dean. (but then afterwards i’ll watch something a little more mind stimulating, i promise.)

p.s: you can eat it all politely with a plate and knife, but my friends and i did perfectly happy with just our hands.

…off to watch some tv.
