See, this is what happens when two nerds get married and have little boys.

A combination of "Huh. Who knew?" and procrastinaton

So, I'm doing a cake-baking booth for a Relief Society activity on Saturday (that's tomorrow). I had all these grand plans about how I would prepare gradually over the week, so I didn't have to crunch it all on Friday. Well, all of you who know me can probably predict about how well that turned out (although I did get all the buttercreams made ahead). Today I've made Vanilla Bean Financiers, Golden Financiers, and Lemon Poppy Seed Cake, PLUS I've taken the kids for a good walk, kept up on the dishes, and dinner is in the oven. Who knew I could pull off that much in a day? (Hint: Not me.) On the other hand-- I'm never procrastinating this much baking down to one day ahead again. Not ever. I've been standing in front of my stand mixer and scale all day! It does smell GOOD though...

What's for dinner?

Djej Emshmel. With apricots, extra garlic, and chickpeas. And rainbow couscous. Oh yeah!
As an after-thought, why is it, Google, that if I search for an image of Djej Emshmel, this is one of the top results?
P.S. Take that, SOPA!

Oh my...

I watched part of the Republican debate last night (the one in South Carolina). I didn't get to see all of it-- it was approaching the dudes' bed time, and we all sit down together and watch a show then. Anyway, I asked Will this morning if he had watched any of it (mostly he was horse-playing with Ethan). He said he did see a little, and then he said "And I learned something. I learned that America is almost destroyed." Ah, politicians.

Well then.

We have survived the craziness that is buying a house right before the holidays kick off. Should you have the option and are on the fence about doing so, I do not recommend it. BUT-- I love my house. :) SO. Regular reading, living, and blogging shall now recommence. Starting with reading the returns from the Iowa caucuses. And should you need another reason to start poking around here, things like this will start popping up more often too:
