Things to do today:

1. File taxes
2. Bake peanut butter cookies
3. Bake two loaves of "freedom" bread
4. Make a salad
5. Dust, vacuum, and tidy up the house
6. Make tortellini soup for 15
7. Have a party where I teach everyone to knit

My schedule's full today, folks! Check back tomorrow.


The bread's rising, and I started thinking of a funny story to tell. When we first got married, I knew my husband really liked breads, so one Saturday I worked all day baking him loaves for dinner. We sat down to eat and I asked him how the bread tasted. He said it was good, and after a few seconds' pause, he said, "You know what else is good? Grands biscuits. Those are great!" I cracked up. I'd spent about five hours baking for him, and all he really wanted was a tube of ready-made Pilsbury! He still says that he didn't mean it the way it sounded, but I don't usually take the time to bake fresh bread anymore!


Oh my gosh, I have so much soup left over. If I ate soup for both lunch and dinner, it would take me 12 days to finish it all. Please send me your addresses so I can mail everyone some soup...

" 'Freedom' bread"!? Never heard of that before. What was your major in college? "Freedomese"? :)

Just a little joke for us francophobes :)

"I have so much soup left over."

Don't drown in it. :)

I know the feeling in miniature - I just bought a half gallon of cooked rice which is more than I need for this week, and usually I go out to eat on the weekends, so I'm trying to finish it off as quickly as possible. In my experience, it will go bad even after a few days in the refrigerator.

"Please send me your addresses so I can mail everyone some soup..."

If everyone did, the combined air mail charges might bankrupt you ... :)
