Last night the gods possessed me to make some brownies using Sweet Potato instead of oil.
They look nasty prior to baking, but I promise this is the way they are supposed to look:
Hurrah for healthier brownies! They taste pretty good too.
This morning the Great Odin commanded me to make pancakes using ricotta! And Ricotta I used.
Ricotta pancakes recipe comes from Washington state cookbook. : )
I really liked separating the yolks from the whites….and whipping the whites afterward.
They got burnt, mostly b/c I couldn’t handle them properly without destroying them, so I waited until I could move them (ie. when it was too late). They tasted ok, but feel rather grainy (probably the whole wheat flour though).
That DAMNED Bonnaroo dress turned to be a fiasco. I KNEW I was using too much fabric, but I followed the measurements on the back and proceeded to make myself a size 16 dress, knowing full well that I’m a 12 at most (“The pattern is always right.” I kept telling myself. That is not the case when you are reading the pattern wrong, Laura. 😉
I nearly cried when I saw the giant tent I had made….but a good sleep and blessings from Mother Mary cheered me up to make it slimmer.
I was still not happy with it….so i decided to make a top instead. I am satisfied.
Presenting the Bonnaroo Top! Success!
Finally, I made a little tawashi today, completely disregarding the fact that I had to do all the stitches in back loops only. I am still quite happy with my little scrubbie. I’ll probably make one for my dear mother, even though she hates the sight of scrubbies I’m sure. 🙂
All in all, mostly failed projects….that with a little thought and motivation, turned out quite well. I can bake, sew, and crochet and that’s an achievement by itself! Woo!
