And now that I think about it, this probably wasn't the best day to go for that blood draw. I thought it was just a check of my vitamin D level. Last time I was at the endocrinologist's office, she prescribed the mega-dose-once-a-week variety cuz I'm not so good at remembering to take vitamins. And then I forgot to take it the first couple of weeks. Duh. Anyway, long story short, when I arrived for the blood test, they had a list of several other things to check. Here I expected a finger prick (well, a girl can dream) and ended up donating 4 tubes full, about an hour after consuming a fresh-from-the-oven sticky bun. So when they call to alert me of cholesterol and triglyceride problems, I'll have to fess up. Enough about me. Let's get on with the pictures. The recipe can be found here or here, and other blog links are here.
|Guess what I discovered? See that "lock" lever? Would have|
been so helpful to know about that during the making of
the white loaves...
|Never mashed butter with a |
It was fun.
|♪♫... Rolling, rolling, rolling up some|
(think "Proud Mary" - sorry!)
|There they are hanging out between the blackberries and the broccoli.|
Thought they'd feel healthier that way. Oh, and did you notice on
the shelf above? Uh-huh. Rhubarb. You know I'm going back
for a second round of that Hungarian Shortbread...
|Ready for the oven. See that potholder in the back?|
It says "The Queen does not cook" and it's
burnt from when I accidentally dropped it on
an element in the oven, LOL!
|Close Enough. Yum!|
This shoe reminded me a little of that butter-smashing... Actually, there's a story here. I saw it under the edge of this dumpster by the library. A few weeks later it was still there, miraculously enough - with it's mate! Can't find that picture right now, but it'll show up one of these days. Then I'll have to make that second batch of sticky buns.
