this blog is done

If you haven't already noticed, this blog is fairly dead. My schedule got crazy in February, and suddenly now it's the end of March, so I think it's time to call it the end for this here project. I've folded some of this blog into my other, still-alive blog, so if you're wondering what I'm up to at the moment, head here to find out.

completion: baked something again

[ original assignment ]

Made an apple pie last night. And yes, it's already half gone. *ahem* I like pie, OK?

Recipe here.

completion: baked something

[ original assignment ]

Something = Cornbread. Om nom nom.

I heard the guy in the next-door apartment groan when he walked past my door while I was taking it out of the oven. Because of the cornbread aromas wafting into his nostrils, of course.

More (baking) to come later this week. Just to torture my neighbor.

Recipe here (from my grandmother):

Corn Bread
1 cup yellow corn meal
1 1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 cup milk
4 tbsp vegetable oil

Sift dry ingredients together, add eggs, milk and oil. Beat until smooth about 1 minute. Bake in 8" square pan at 425ยบ for 30 minutes.

project: bake

You know what I haven't done in a while? Baked. I mean baking food items with an oven, not anything else that could be misconstrued with the word baked, you. Since before the holidays, in fact.

So that's what I'm going to do this week: bake. Bake something, to be specific.

Last day; an old army tanker of some sort.

Oh, and Happy Valentine's Day.

Is it illegal to take photos of post office boxes? Hope not.
