I finally got a chance to bake Blondies! I followed the recipe posted by Gluten-free Medley though I made a few changes. I used a different gf baking mix since that is what I had on hand and I added sweetened coconut in addition to the chocolate chips. I want to try her Lemon Poppy seed scones next. With all the flying poo that sums up my life currently, I realized that I don’t have any comfort foods anymore. They all went the way of the dodo when I had to go gluten-free. I have high hopes for the blondies. I have come up with a tortilla pizza casserole that turned out pretty good, it was even better the next day and definitely helped with the pizza withdrawal I’m going through. Another quick treat I found is warming up gf chocolate cake in the microwave and spreading peanut butter on top of the warm cake. Gluten-free cake seems to go stale quickly, so between the microwave and the peanut butter, it’s easy to revitalize into something tasty. I really shouldn’t eat peanut butter either, but how can something good for you be that bad?
While I was sorting laundry, I spied an ugly sweater. I bought it on clearance a few years back and it never quite fit right. It’s too wide and too short… even for me, it would have been perfect in the Flash Dance era. It makes a statement, and that statement is “Pink Hobo”. Since I don’t wear it, it’s a perfect candidate for yarn reclamation. 100% Cotton! I thought I had a blue one that was also a dog, but I can’t find it. I may have donated it at some point. I think I should raid the basement for old clothes… I’m sure there’s a sweater or two down there.
