Waste Not - Weigh Not

I'm enjoying the benefit of our continuous supply of healthy, good-for-you fresh eggs with a motivating desire to spend more time in the kitchen baking.

Last week I made Cream Puffs.  Ummm. Cream Puffs with pudding in the middle and topped with whipped cream, so very tasty.  As soon as the first batch was gone, I made another batch.

Then I made an Angel Food cake and enjoyed it immensely. The egg supply continues so I made PopOvers.  Love those popovers. Plain, with butter or with butter and jelly they really taste good.  I’m presently perusing the Lemon Pound Cake recipe from the trusty ole, Betty Crocker Cookbook.

I’ve been having such a grand time in the kitchen, it would be a bother to step on the bathroom scale and read the digital message.  I mean, we have such a lovely quantity of fresh eggs, it would be wrong to waste them.  

Waste not – weigh not.

I'm Reading

I've got several books stacked on my desk in the "current" stack.  So many books and so little time. I just bought this knitting reference book and I'm really enjoying it.  It comes with 2 DVDs packed with how to knitting help that starts with the very beginning steps to knitting and then it takes you all the way to more detailed professional techniques.  This book is a good price on Amazon at $16.47.  The suggested price on the back of the book is $24.97 and it's nicely spiral bound to lay flat. I bought mine from the local yarn shop.  Shopping online is so easy, just click, click and it's delivered to your door, but it's also good to support the local business when we can.
