I'm really enjoying it here. The atmosphere is so much less tense than anyplace I've been -- well, I was going to say, anyplace I've been since we left Caladan; but on Caladan I was already learning from Duncan and Gurney, and I already knew that I could be an assassin's target at any time. Here, no one really even notices me or cares what I do. It's incredible.
Also, there is pudding. Pudding is the best food known to mankind. I haven't really joined any classes yet, so I spent a lot of time today just looking up various things about pudding. Here's a recipe I think the house elves should try making:
Danish Rum Pudding
2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
1 cup boiling water
2 cups whipping cream
1/3 cup white rum
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dissolve gelatin in cold then hot water, cool until partially set. Whip cream, then add to gelatin with sugar, rum and vanilla. Pour into individual molds or large bowl. Refrigerate. When ready to serve, top with Raspberry Topping.
I'm not sure about the units of measurement, but doesn't that sound good?
