Another week and Im already trying to time travel and make it Tuesday. I know its cause Im not wanting to think about what to make for dinner. Too many things to think about and then get ready for cooking.
I do have a couple cooking successes tonight. Makes it up for the nightmares of yesterday.
Another feasting of pesto, I added some slivered almonds to this batch. P, D and I gave it a thumbs up. DL saw me adding the avocado and decided to hate it before eating (*sigh – kids).
I also baked another loaf using the starter from yesterday.
This one turned out MUCH better. Sounds like a drum as it should when baked right. Im going with the King Arthur’s directions being much better than the one used for the first batch and the one I will be using going forward.
Now only if I have the nerve to bake their version of sticky-buns. Those suckers look wonderful!
On other crafty items – Im still working on P’s blanket. My left thumb starts killing me if I hook for too long. The third color has bee chosen. Red Heart Camo – Platoon is the winner
The Desert Camo was just to – pastel - for the boy. Cant say I blame him. Platoon will work much better with the regular camo and black.
Ink Circle’s Fall Mandala is also getting x lovin. Still working on the outline.
