temple diaries

So many tangerines from a hearty donation! There’s a very rigorous no wasting practice of the gifts from the 10 directions. We’ve been having tangerines every meal so I offered to change it up a bit. And it turns out the flour shouldn’t be too much, it makes the cake too squishy. Today instead of orange chocolate I made ginger orange cake and brought two over to the temple next door with the old nuns who nurse a kitty with one eye. They’re so old school and legit. Much respect and gratitude too to 覺塵師 for being such a cool food manager and letting me make my pies and cakes and such. 🤗
