Cherry Request

So the BF and I went to his dad's house last Monday. It's been a couple weeks since we stopped and said Hi, so we thought we would.

Of course, we hit a road side farmers market along the way. Found some wonderful bi-color sweet corn and picked up 36 ears. I spent the next day parboiling and freezing corn...but I digress.

So we go to BFdad's, and I give him some of the corn we just picked up. We talk about this and that, and he mentions how much he loves me! He is so excited that BF finally has a happy, loving relationship. (In secret, (meaning when I was not around) BFDad asked BF when we were going to get married....)

It was a good visit, and shortly before we left, BFDad says to me, 'You ever make a cherry pie?'
Me- yes, I have. But not for a while.

BFDad- I like some cherry pie. Man that's good stuff!

Me- okay then. Guess I will find some cherries....

BFDad- Oh, I like cherry pie! But don't go to no trouble just for me....mmmm, I love cherry pie....

And when BF and I got to the car, we laughed....yeah, I love to cook and bake, and I have another admirer....So I am now on the lookout for a great cherry pie recipe. So if you have one...drop me a line. Or message me. Or FB me if you know who I am. :)

Sleep is for Sissies

I need to go to bed. I have an early morning tomorrow....twice. I would explain but why?

Suffice it to say my sleep, which I don't get much of in the first place because my body thinks I don't need it, is going to be interrupted twice.

It's okay. I don't have a problem with it. I tell my body when I want to get up and it does. It hasn't failed me yet.

On a side note- I bombed my Econ homework. Only because I was not in the mood to do the homework, and I felt rushed (it was 3pm and homework was due the next day at noon). So, I got a C on the homework. Twice. (We're allowed to do it twice and the professor gives us the average of the two grades.)

So with the C, my overall grade dropped to a B. I hate that. It means I have to ace my midterm to pull it back up. Ugh.

Autumn, Fall Whatever. It's good weather.

It is now time to start baking again. I am in the mood to make bread....and lots of it. Preferably on a daily basis. Which is good, since we tend to eat a lot of bread.

I know, carbs. And not good for you and all that.

But we like bread.

And I like baking.

And boules are in my VERY near future.
