Rambly Bambly time.

Official CoverWorking on Witness to the Moon this week.

 

What do I have to ramble about today? My brain is a mess because I’m trying to do a bunch of things at once. My mom asked if I’d make some homemade bread and banana bread. Now I couldn’t make the traditional banana bread that I personally make because we have no sour cream so I made a traditional banana bread like most people make. For the regular bread, I made Challah bread. We love to snack on it. I don’t do the braid, I do a regular loaf. And when I make it, I dump everything into the bread machine, then turn it to dough cycle. My hands no longer can stand the kneading motions.

Here is a good (read: similar) recipe for the Challah bread that I make. I’ll try and get my own recipe up here soon. http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/four-strand-braided-challah-recipe

Sure, you can take the time to braid and do it all nicely, but I don’t. My method of cooking involves dumping everything into a bowl and mixing. haha Seriously. I really do that. I dump all ingredients for the banana bread into a giant bowl (I doubled the recipe so we could also have a loaf) and then mixed it up. None of that mix wet, then dry bidness for me. I ain’t got time fo that! Most of the time I do it now. Do it for my biscuits, cookies, etc., and I still get compliments on my cooking.

Had a heck of a time with my laptop working slow today so I’m surprised I got as many words as I did.

The story was fine, the laptop and programs kept hiccuping though. Drove me nuts. I’d have to pause and wait for it to catch up. Needless to say I issued the laptop a lot of very dirt “shape up or ship out” looks. Please don’t ship out laptop, I do love you. 😀

Lucy gets spayed tomorrow.

You wanna send her some prayers and healing vibes, that’d be lovely. She is our 9-lbs Shih Tzu darling baby. Seriously. She has my brother wrapped around her little tootsies. Being so small we’re concerned that everything will go all right. It’s a normal procedure I am aware, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a concern. After her, the only one left to fix will be Cheyenne. Our black beauty. I’ll share a Lucy Goose (one of my many nicknames for her) photo –
