I was up until around 11 working on the cake I took to work this morning. The Graham Cracker Torte was more complicated than I was anticipating for a week-night treat! But it was good:
Taking pictures of the torte outside made me think that I most certainly need to save up and get a little table and chairs for our porch. It’d be nice to have for any evenings we grill (if it ever warms up enough and the weekends are nice & sunny instead of rainy!), as well as taking some better food pictures.
I’m trying to conserve the milk until I can get to the store on Friday, so I made some oatmeal instead of having my Kashi cereal. I picked this canister of McCann’s up awhile ago, just because I wanted a change from the old-fashioned oats I’d been buying. But once the weather starts warming up, I tend not to want warm oats in the morning. They seem too heavy for warmer weather, and I just can’t get into overnight oats.
Since I bought this over the weekend, the bambino has been asking for spoonfuls of it each morning. Today, I plopped some in my oats:
The bambino wanted a cookie, so I ended up getting a loaf of sourdough on a whim.
I decided this afternoon that we were getting George’s for dinner tonight. I’ve been craving pizza for days now, and while Jay got himself a large pepperoni pizza, I got a kid’s meal instead:
The next couple days are going to be busy. Tomorrow night I’m attending the Taste of Home Cooking School. I’m enough of a dork that I’ve been geeked about it for weeks. On Friday, I’m heading to Sioux Falls, to get more work done on Junior. And I’m planning on doing a little shopping for myself, as well as some grocery shopping at Pomegranate Market and Great Harvest. Assuming, of course, the work on the car doesn’t take too long!
