Christmas Miracle

Tucker had a multicultural food feast on the last day of school before Christmas break, so we made Irish Soda Bread and took it in with some Kerrygold butter.  This was a finished loaf.

Mixing the dough.  It's been a long time since I did this kind of baking.  I had to go buy flour and sugar just for the occasion.  Ugh.

Not very promising.  At this point I was considering what plan B would be since it was about eight at night and I needed to drop this off at eight in the morning.  Thank goodness there was an Irish Christmas miracle and it turned out well!

This is what happens when I try to use my phone while walking.  Lucky me, I was out of contract anyway and was able to get the next model of the same phone for a song.  Still, bummer.

Fantasy Cupboard

Last weekend this was my project and I am super pleased with it, I had to share for anyone who didn't see it on Facebook!  All my plastic Sprouts bin bags and random packages all put into labelled jars.  I could stare at this all day.

I am 41 years old, it is 2014, and I had never had sushi until Wednesday.  I decided a few months ago that I was going to dive in next time I got the chance, and when my sista Heather and I went out with the other gals at work for our joint birthday lunch to a sushi restaurant, I ate everything they put in front of me....and loved it all!  I can't believe I put it off for so long- it's delicious, and so pretty!
