First of all, welcome new followers and thank you all for all the lovely comments last week! They seriously made my week. =)
This weekend did not start out well. (WARNING: Geeky videogame blahdy-blah coming! Skip to the next paragraph for baking!) I am trying (or I should say, WAS TRYING) to complete a Mass Effect 2 playthrough on Insanity, in order to get a different game ending and finish up my last two achievements. I won't go into details, but through a mix of glitches, bad decisions and annoyingly over-powered bosses, I wasted an inordinate amount of time and have probably given up. Probably. Either that or I'm restarting my campaign. =P
My replacement Companion Cube Cookie Jar also arrived! (Ooops, still videogames...next paragraph, baking! I promise!!)
So, of course, I had to fill it with cookies.
|The Aperture Science Weighted Companion Cube will never threaten to stab you and cannot, in fact, speak...but if it could, it would say, "I am filled with delicious cookies!"|
OK SERIOUSLY, NO MORE VIDEOGAMES NOW.
I did manage to finish Helena!! This is a big deal and deserves its own post, but here's a teaser photo.
Saturday we went to a basketball game, although this time there was no dancing involved. We decided to have friends over for Settlers of Catan and Super Bowl watching on Sunday...and so I could finally meet the recipient of Helena. =) It was way too warm for a modeling session, but her mom was very pleased with the sweater, so I am extremely happy!
I decided to make the Cheddar, Beer and Mustard Pull-Apart Bread that had just been posted to Smitten Kitchen to go with some chili (made by Michael the master chili-maker). It had beer in it, so it seemed appropriate for football. =) The pictures at Smitten Kitchen are, of course, so much better, but here's what it looked like in my kitchen as I...
I had a salad for lunch today. =P
|Seriously? Bread makes you fat?|
