Spring Break 2012... aka. what i've been doing instead of blogging.

I've been:

Surfing...

 

Sunning...

 

Sewing...

 

Playing catch...

(Lucille Butterbean in action!)

 

Attempting to bake...

(Cornflake crunch* from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook by Christina Tosi.)

*I don't know what I did wrong, but my attempt to recreate the Cornflake-Chocoloate chip-marshmallow cookies was disasterous. What in the bakery was a light, chewy, and dream-worthy cookie** became a weapon of mass destruction (and not in a good way) at my hands. It was worse than this. But the cornflake crunch made for a nice picture at least.

 

**this cookie was so good-- SO GOOD-- that I immediately ordered the cookbook from Amazon, then promptly had a temper tantrum nervous breakdown mildly bad day when I stupidly shipped it to the wrong address. Lesson learned: if you want the cookbook immediately, just buy it in the store. Also, it's pretty humiliating to throw a hissy fit in front of your parents when you're 29. Don't do it.

 

ANYWAY, back to spring break. The hubby visited (!!!), we relaxed, and I did not blog. But it's been an excellent ten days, and here's to a great spring. OH, I have news: I will be gainfully employed this summer! I've snagged an internship with HGTV in Knoxville, TN. Hooray!
