Pictures / Impunities Report

I forgot the notebook which has the doodles and so I couldn't scan them. Y'all will have to wait until Wednesday. One picture contains a shaggy unicorn.

What should I bake?

I'm taking a break from writing articles about liver cancer and kidney stones. Browsing cookie recipes because I've promised to bake and mail cookies, and also because the announcement for the reading this Saturday in the Long Beach Notebook series says "bring food or drink to share." My food processor is dead, so nothing that requires grinding nuts. Some possibilities:
  • gingerbread with or without blueberries
  • shortbread--could be flavored with either ginger or nutmeg
  • molasses cookies
  • a basic coffeecake with streusel topping
  • some kind of biscotti. I have a recipe for banana-pecan biscotti, sounds weird but it's good.
I've been looking for an excuse to make nan-e badami, cookies made of almond flour flavored with cardamom and rose water, but they're more of a springtime thing, so maybe not. And I don't have any rose water handy and not much time to make it to the grocery store. Ok, so I won't make them this week, but soon.


The class is tired.

I prefer

hummus with a creamy texture.


Is well and needs his wings clipped. He scolded me a bit yesterday evening, but this morning he'd mellowed and was happy to sit on my shoulder while I wrote articles about nasty, painfull diseases.


I haven't been devoting much time to my practice, so we'll see how tomorrow goes.
