We've had a fun few days lately. :) I have been busy organizing my house. Trying to clean up the clutter, get rid of what we don't need, and make space for what we do. We are notoriously short on closet space around here, so it takes creative organization, which I have just started really working on! :)
We took time out to make Fama (my grandma) a cake for her birthday. We made her a Sour Cream Chocolate Cake with PW's Best Frosting I've Ever Had and drizzled with caramel sauce from Starbucks. Fame lives in FL, and we don't, so she didn't actually *eat any of it. :) We got on Skype, though, and sang happy birthday and she watched Little Missy blow out the candles and eat a piece. :)
I was reading in a magazine and saw a recipe for this. I dismissed it, thinking it'd be too hard. Then I saw another recipe and read it further. So. Easy. I tried my hand at it, and Voila! Butter. :) It's really creamy and yum. I even had these old butter crocks laying around! (I did not realize that they were butter crocks until I made the butter and thought about it, so good educational moment!)
Today my mom and I went to an antique shop and i got this gem. I have been wanting to switch over to stoneware, glass, and ceramic bakeware, because my cheapy metal pan selection is depleting. We were wandering and this caught my eye in a booth that was 50% off. It is California Pottery. I checked the tag, and half off it was just a titch over $3! I did a search online when I got home, because i wanted to make sure that it is oven safe and whatnot, and I found one listed on etsy for $40! You have *no idea how incredibly giddy this find makes me. I love stuff like this, and I love it even more for cheap. :)
That's about all I've got. I am exhausted and for some reason I am not sleeping. So goodnight!
