Monument to the unborn…

BIG BLUE WAVE: Monument to the unborn dedicated in Slovakia (excellent pro-life art!).

Wow. I could feel such a chill when I first set eyes on this photo. I could never imagine what it would feel like nor do I ever wish I will.

Mission Complete!

Rice cooker, we are no longer strangers. But mere acquaintances. Due to your easy nature I believe I would like to further our relationship and become better acquainted.

How does that sound? Appealing? I believe so. đŸ™‚

Next up, some dried beans in ze rice cooker.

… Hopefully nothing explodes. đŸ˜€

All hail the oat.

Oaty oaty oaty!

Lookie what I made!

When I got home tonight I had the itching to bake. So what’s a girl to do?

I scratched it!

I scratched it pretty hard. With some Cinnamon & Raisin Oatmeal Muffins.

I used:

  • 1 cup of rolled oats (which I ground up slightly in a food processor)
  • 1 cup of whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon (Probably? Didn’t measure because I love cinnamon)
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup raisins (soaked in hot water, prior)
  • 1 rounded tbsp applesauce
  • 1 cup of buttermilk (almost 1 cup of almond milk mixed with 1 tbsp vinegar)

I just mixed the dry well, and incorporated the wet! Scooped into a oiled muffin pan, shoved it in a pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for about 18-20 minutes. Et viola!

Sadly mom got to one before I could take a picture. Poor muffin, never got its 15 seconds of fame.

Bon appetite mes amis.

Bean Spilling: I’m a little ashamed.

It’s bean spilling time…

I don’t really know how to … umm… use a rice cooker. I’ve used it before, about a couple (read: two) times before. But only with adult supervision. That’s just not right.

So. I’ve made it my goal that by the end of this week coming up, I will use it. At least once and I will be successful. Because it is shameful for a Chinese girl who was raise for half her life in China not to know how to operate her way around a rice cooker.

I'm going to conquer you.

Imma do it. Just you watch.
