Forward Motion

Looking north on SW Broadway, Downtown Portland

I’m having trouble getting my act together. It’s gray and drippy and all I want to do is drink cocoa and stay in bed and listen to Air Supply.

I exercised and now I’m tackling my administrivia so I think I’m back in forward motion.

I’m going to bake bread this afternoon. I’ve never used this recipe and I just looked it over to make sure I time it right.

One of the steps is, “cover the bread with a clean kitchen towel as it cools.”

I love this instruction.

Who would cover their bread with a dirty towel?

Katie was in town last week and we met for dinner. We tried Little Bird for dinner and it was fantastic. When they brought these rosewater macarons with our check we spent about 5 minutes cooing over how adorable they were before we could eat them.

Last week we had a day with a high of 57 and I wanted to come home and throw all my winter stuff in the back of the closet. I also looked at bathing suits and tanktops online. It’s way too early to be so optimistic about warm weather and if I move the winter wardrobe I’ll just jinx it.

    Um, 57 is not warm. I’m just sayin.

    Mmmmmm…that bread looks good. But not as good as the rosewater macaroons. I have tried to make macaroons about three times and it was always a disaster. Maybe this summer I’ll tackle that project again…

    I just bought the ingredients to make chinese sweet sesame cakes. I’ll report on how that turns out! 🙂
