Sugar Fix

I woke up this morning to a gloomy, rainy day.  In contrast to yesterday’s beautiful 65 + sunny spring day of re-potting plants, cleaning out garden beds, and a lovely evening with good friends, today’s weather has left me unmotivated and uninspired.

Weekend Bagels

This weekend, I made some more homemade bagels.  They turned out great!  This time, I used this recipe, since it was the first that came up on Google.  I’m not so picky, it turns out.  And this one got great reviews.   I wanted an egg & cheese on a bagel (my favorite occasional morning […]

T. G. I. S.

I suppose I could have woken up so happy because I went to bed thinking about jelly donuts for breakfast. It’s always possible that the donuts made their way into my dreams. But I think I woke up so happy because I didn’t have to go to school or work for a bazillion hours and […]

Under Pressure

Today turned out to be a day of food preparation and preservation. Which is great, because I think we own almost every device for food preservation known to man. Trust me, if there’s ever some disaster that closes all grocery stores in the US, head on over to our house. We’ll have loads of granola […]
