After my lacking butter fiasco..I made a good little pound cake..a great little poundcake.Yum Yum.
I made half the recipe and used a Le Creuset loaf pan.
I read the reviews..:)
I only put a pinch of salt because my butter is salted and I baked mine at 315 F,70-80 mins.Check w/ a toothpick..I use a skewer.
You can find the recipe here~
Jacques makes his own crème fraiche now;)
I've been painting pinks and greens for lack of them here the week of April 15th..
Cheap cheap paper I bought at Hobby Lobby..in November..
Daniel Smith paints.
Hard to scan WHITE paper:(It's never white it seems..like in person.
I don't mind my fuschia buds..I HATE the full bloom one;)
And a scraper from when I did ceramics..to scrape some paint off;)
Ho Hum ..this winter has overstayed it's welcome.
But as if a miracle..Spring has seemingly arrived..along w/ the perfunctory rain:)
I did some chores in the rain that involved going outside and I see how beneficial the rain has been.♥
Garlic up..all of it:)
Scillas starting,some Pulmonaria blooming..
2 of the Alphabet boys came over after school..their dad was away on business..mommy works..so they popped by here.
I only had daughters;)
Boys are so different:)And funny! We talked about the girls in their school..lol let's just say they are not into girls..yet;)
I can't begin to say how grateful I am that they are so sweet with us.
We watched a good movie after football..Hoovey..perfect movie as they all 3 play basketball too.I cried 3 times lol.Football season starts Saturday.Next winter Max will do basketball ..Oli soccer.But all 4 play football.
They are sports nuts and I like that.Move move move:)It's social for them also..
He's the baby..8 ..he is the only one that has something from my dad's side of the family ..in all 4 of them..
Made these for them:) Good.Find the recipe here..They are so good a couple of hrs after and the next day..like Costco ones;)
I knew the rain was coming..so I prepped Terry's No-Knead easy easy bread.This tme..no walnuts..no cranberries..but a tbsp of Vital Wheat Gluten and a handful of cracked wheat..the rceipe originated from Sally's Baking Addiction and it's a keeper.
I have mentioned it to you before..but it's worth repeating.
If you have never made one..try it..it's no-fail..easy and you will love it~
Have a nice weekend..happy gardening..happy real Spring..
