Baking The Blues Away

It's been a while since I blathered here, and I offer my apologies.  I've been busy, trying to get everything sorted out for Christmas here - gifts to buy and packages to mail, and various and sundry other errands to take care of.

Had some bad news tonight - not surprising bad news, but confirmation of something I'd been expecting, so I'm feeling down.  Tomorrow, I'm going to do something about it.

I'm going to bake bread.  No mixer, I'm going to burn out my frustration by kneading the dough by hand.  It's too cold and rainy to exercise, and I don't go for that anyway, so it'll be a day of clearing my head of anything except the dough and the very next step I have to take.

That'll do the trick, I think.  If not, well, I have wine.

New Link

Just added my sister-in-law's Pampered Chef Site to the sidebar - she's got a Christmas sale going now through the 15th, so if there's some cooking-ish stuff you want, take a look-see and throw some business her way.

The meal plan called for chicken soft tacos, and I decided that I would make homemade tortillas, which I haven't done in a while.  When the kids got home from school, they enthusiastically agreed, and asked to help.

It's A Crazy Idea, But It Just Might Work...

Planning for our New Year's Day get-together, and I'm thinking I'll make a lucky soup, because everyone could use more of it.  I set up a poll on Facebook to get some ideas for tasty ingredients that might touch on the  "luck" theme.  I'm starting with duck broth, so pop on over and voice your thoughts.
