What a list of kitchen accomplishments in our house today: a HUGE batch of soup for our post-annual-meeting lunch at church tomorrow, a batch of focaccia bread for panini tonight, Younger made chocolate cupcakes and buttercream frosting, and then I prevailed long enough to make some golden pound cake cupcakes (all three last recipes from MS Living for February). My feet are sore from all the standing and I have that vague sense of "Where'd the afternoon go?" but seeing as we also did the week's foodshopping, went out to b'fast with two of Younger's friends, made a nice haul at the Library book sale, AND I went for a good walk with the dog AND then solo. . . . I'm pretty content, proud, and ready for a great dinner--and dessert!
Today was also warm(ish) or (er). . . got up to 34, and when the sun was only behind thin clouds, the day had hints of early March (frequently "early March" is uttered like a curse, but in this case. . .!). Since last week did get down to -8 a few mornings, the warming trend felt great.
So. Soon to make dinner, ice a few more cupcakes, and enjoy!
