Great day! Leftover cozy biscuits and sausage gravy for breakfast. Wore my fur coat on the ride to work and stayed nice and warm. Data entry, pumpkin cookies, meetings, and Picasa. (Look it up. It’s super cool.)
Then my baker twin from Santa Rosa got here! We went grocery shopping for about an hour and changed what we were going to bake about a million times and picked out lunch. Thank goodness for iPhones. We settled on Lavender Cupcakes with a Honey Buttercream Frosting and Penne with Balsamic Butter and Roasted Asparagus. But asparagus was expensive so we switched to broccoli and zucchini. And I only had fussili. We went back home for a tasty lunch of goat cheese brie with apricot jam on a French baguette, balsamic vinegar and olive oil, and a lovely sliced Gravenstein apple. We watched Giada and Ina on Food Network while we ate.
Time for baking! The cupcakes were jam packed with lavender since we decided not to strain it out of our infused butter. And our frosting stayed liquidy. Sad day. We tried everything. I messaged the author. We’ll see.
The pasta was delicious! We made garlic toast also. And watched It Could Happen To You, a movie about a guy that wins the lottery and splits it with a waitress.
We washed many dishes! And had a great time catching up. We started a list of things to bake and make over Thanksgiving :) So excited!
Clarinet boy came by to pick her up and we all chatted a bit. I sent them home with cookies. Can’t wait to see them again next weekend!
Tea and Harry Potter to round out the evening (and avoid studying). Time for bed, so sleepy…
