|"Helping" me with the flour.|
It turned out okay because I was in the mood for an adventure, and I also needed something simple and fast. I don't remember how I thought of it, but I suddenly knew that I had enough ingredients for tortillas; and that I hadn't made them in over a year. So in the midst of one of Thing One's tantrums I yoinked him into the kitchen and started mixing the dough (I don't think I've ever seen a tantrum end so completely, so fast!).

And I made a treasury for Elizabethan Craft celebrating coffee, tea and breakfast. Look at all of fun things that people make about coffee!
And I am contemplating new project; I will share the details as soon as I figure it all out.

|They wanted to pick the cheese off and eat it.|
When I got up the next morning I discovered that I was too impatient to wait for the yeast in the sweet rolls to rise, and why go to all of that trouble when I didn't have any bacon anyway? So I made a standard biscuit dough (I just use the recipe on the back of the can of baking powder, but one day I will get buttermilk--and I will make buttermilk biscuits!). I added garlic powder, parsley and sage to the dough; I was going for a sort of seasoned bread taste.

We are halfway through Lent and I am not doing any of the things that I said I was going to do. On the other hand, I am doing good with the one thing that I I've been trying to do but wasn't focusing on--my prayer life. I guess God gives us what we really need, rather than what we think we need.
The next post should be about food, I just need to sit down at the computer.

Most of the time I do try not to let those people bother me. They really do mean well, and it does no good for me to get upset with them when I'm already so busy trying to keep my children in line. Actually, I kind of find those people amusing and I can't help smiling at them. If they really understood, then they would do something to help.
