yesterday's was good
went with a girl to her work
she said 'you might fit in'.
it was a bit of a recycle reuse place
when I said I could sew with a machine,
the eyes lit up they wanted a sewing teacher.
better yet they had a place I could set up
with machines and a place to lay out fabric.
I was cleaning up the break room
at an office job, and was working at
making coffee - the machine was
making it difficult- and tried to wash a wall?
think the fixation on coffee meant
I wanted to wake up.
finished off baking my lime almond cookies
this time it was lime and cardamon
with a touch of cinnamon.
one stick(1/2 cup butter soft)
one cup sugar- combine 1/2 white half brown
more apple and less sugar works too.
mix in: one egg, 1Tspoon apple butter
1T-1/4c spoon lime juice, 1tsp salt.
1-2 tsp cardamon- cinnamon is in the apple butter
beat till fluffy
add the dry ingredients
one cup almond flour
one cup pancake mix(the just add water stuff)
_the original recipe had 1/2 cup flour and no leavening
you rely on the cold cookie dough
hitting the hot oven for the rising-
it does slide out a bit like those buttery brittle things
florentines thank you google.
and needs a greased pan or parchment
put the mixed dough into the fridge
to chill at least one hour
overnight is better
make 1 inch balls and put 2" apart
I use baking parchment underneath
bake 325"F for 12-13 minutes
they will resemble little food paths
with golden around the lower edges
let cool on pan before sliding them off.
warning the little buggers are eager and
one dove back into the oven as I pulled out the pan
you can make logs and roll them into saran wrap
and put them into the freezer and bake them later
as you want fresh cookies.
we put the temporary greenhouse is up
I told austin "your bedroom is here
you can stay here any time :8^o
we'll lay a carpet of dog food bags
and blow up the mattress for him to sleep.
the tent might be good for having a garage sale
I pulled it back down when i saw
severe storms coming on the weather station
and I don't have anything planted yet.
think I folded it up the cover backwayrds, but its ok
a rubber mallott and a hex drive
are my friend and mike.
I had brought in the geraniums and tomatos
one flower pot fell over and I put them on the floor.
I told the dogs not to pee on them
so gus helped himself to the pots in the night,
then washed the floor with it and spit.
oh well its a dog's life
pots are back outside.
the dogs alternate in/out like usual.
today it rained like they said it would(wow)
started the day with a screech as the pager went off.
same lady as last night- think her pain meds had worn off.
today I went over to the mothers
to start figuring out food support.
she was sad, we didn't do it sunday
but they had to work on taxes.
I was not going to stick around for that fun.( Read more... )
called up mom to see how dinner went
she loved the chicken and onions =)
dad chowed down on mac and cheese
with a little chicken- but at least they ate!
with hot crossed buns and deviled egg leftovers.
it was a feast.
now if only mom would walk.
at least she wasn't in bed.
