awakening

the last few weeks have felt like months and months.  could it really only be october 20th?  i counted up the hours i've worked in the last 18 days and it made me dizzy just to think about it.

now that i've had a couple of days to recover i'm feeling more excited than ever to spend some quality time in the kitchen and to tackle some of the crafting projects i had abandoned abruptly when i was called in to work on the competition. 

i've been collecting recipes that i'd like to try, especially this and these...mmmmm......

but first, a good friend has thrown down the gauntlet:  i must bake a (good) spelt baguette....

uh oh....

Those ginger cookies from 101cookbooks have been on my "to make" list for awhile..... make sure to invite us over after you make them! (or just me, Matt is optional).
