A rose that fell off the damn bush in the front yard when I tried to take a picture of it in a better light! One of the pictures is it in the vase after it fell off, smelling wonderfully inside. The first picture looks like it has been manipulated but on the white column in front of my house there’s a shadow of a branch.
We recently had a bit of a heat wave and so I trimmed Cappy’s hair probably too much. Fortunately with this morning’s cold snap, I had something that my mom made hanging around that I was able to put to good use now that Cappy is big enough. Isn’t she fabulous?
The last picture is with her boyfriend, Tucker, resting on her clothed body in the morning sun.
Happy Halloween! I was organizing my spices and shelves and saw that I had some ingredients that I wanted to use up so I thought I’d document how I made a cake for the first time in my life completely UNINTENTIONALLY! I tried to read the instructions, but just didn’t have the patience to do it their way, so….
I put virgin coconut oil in a cake pan. Manually mixed 3 packages of cinnamon muffin mix, added (I don’t really measure, because I”m Italian) about 5 teaspoons of extra white flour, 3 jumbo eggs, one cup of milk, a few teaspoons of cinnamon, a few packages of chocolate chip oatmeal. Baked at 400 degrees for 16 minutes. I took this picture and then I sprinkled a little more cinnamon on top and applied vanilla icing on each piece individually.
The muffin-ish cake is amazing! It’s not even over-the-top sweet, but the moisture and thickness is divine. I’m sure I could probably not have this kind of luck the rest of my life, but it was great to use up those ingredients and at least for now we can enjoy something very tasty for the holiday.
