Better Late than Never

I realize that I never actually introduced myself on EF those 2+ years ago when I joined. So, for post #500, I thought I'd say "Hi!"

Hi!

I'm a German-American engineer who came to Zurich about 2 years ago for school. Finished my degree since then and found a job, so I'm sticking around for a bit.

I love baking (ask around about my cheesecake, but I won't tell you the recipe!) and dancing. I like having a good chat over a few drinks, and you can't tear me away from some good noodle soup.

I hope to see you guys around at some events!

Obviously it is unclear to you both that all recipes mentioned on EF have to be checked out and tested by each Moderator. Samples must be sent by special courier to each Moderator at a venue of their choice. In the meantime, the cook receives a temporary ban to prevent him/her from posting the information to other members. Only when the offerings have been OKed by all the Mods (it may take a second round of tasting if any Mod is uncertain) is the ban removed.
This is a new ruling which may not have, as yet, been read by all members.
Not surprising as I have only just invented it.

I might bring some cheesecake to a Viadukt event at some point. I'll make a point and say when. (Not tonight though.)

And it was a pleasure meeting you

I'm still trying to shift the extra three kilos I gained that afternoon

Luckily I noticed I missed the"f" out of shift before I pressed submit!

Re: Better Late than Never

Sy...you attention-whore. If we'd reintroduce ourselves after going AWOL then think of the number of posts LiB and Simon_CH would have to do.

I think you need a new username and avatar, what with having found a job and all that jazz.

She's even dyed her hair, looking very mature these days, she is. No longer that stuck up Germo-Texan graduate student we used to tolerate at our events.

Welcome back ma. Can I haz cheesecake now?

Re: Better Late than Never

The cheesecake will probably have to wait 2 weeks, because I'm heading out of town next weekend.

But sure, I'll bring one along then.

Edit: I've changed my avatar now. Still have to stick with the ducks, right?

Re: Better Late than Never

The cheesecake was at the Viadukt a few weeks back. Unfortunately, the ravenous masses ate it quite fast.
