Bread and other baked goods

I cannot believe it is Sunday evening already. Where does the weekend go? I didn't make it to the fabric store to see about yarn. No loss, there was no sale and, really, who wants to pay full price for yarn? Not I, even if the fabric store does sell dreamy yarn.

My weekend was still productive, though. I finished the dish cloth and started a second one. They are good, quick projects and perfect for getting back into the groove after several months off. Plus, when I am knitting, I watch TV with a guilt-free conscience. I do LOVE watching movies and good TV shows, but sometimes I do feel like the time would be better spent doing something a bit more productive.

I made bread: two loaves each of pumpernickel, whole wheat and sourdough. There will be lots of yummy sandwiches in our future.

I made a batch of dried chickpeas that were promptly turned into hummus to take for lunches this week. My dried bean-making skills are definitely improving, although I am not quite ready to declare an end to the era of buying canned beans.

I made a batch of oatmeal craisin cookies. What can I say, I am a sucker for Sean's little excited dance whenever he learns there will be cookies.

And we gave the kids a bath - both were smelling far too doggy. Their coats are so soft and even more irresistibly cuddly this evening. Four and a half hours later, Apollo is now on speaking terms with us again.

Well, off to bed now. Hope your weekends were equally as satisfying.

I am the luckiest man EVAR. Sammich manufacturing materials, and oatmeal craisin crack cookies - my life is full of win.

Thanks Hon - you're the best.
