:: Grandma N came to pick up Z-cakes this evening. N8tr0n and I are taking a little weekend trip and thought Z-cakes would have more fun at grandma and grandpa's. We don't leave until this evening so I have big plans for my child-less day. House cleaning, maybe a run, a little sewing...I figure that will get me to about 11:00 AM. After that, I have no idea what I'll do. I am well aware that my life would be very boring without Z-cakes.
:: I spent yesterday making this loaf cake. Mercy. It was the perfect end to our end-of-Summer dinner. It comes out of the oven the most gorgeous brown-almost-black color. Paired with my grandma's bread pan, the sight almost got me teary. Jen, I am positive you will love this. I thought of you the entire time I was making it.
:: I also made the best bread of my life. Not exaggerating. It was quite a domestic day.
:: N8tr0n helped me make pizza the other night. It was simple and delicious topped with garden tomatoes hand crushed by my man, garlic + oregano + fresh thyme + fresh mozzarella + fresh basil. Fresh being the key words in that sentence. I couldn't quit telling N8tr0n how nice it was to have him in the kitchen with me. We need to do that more often. I really really like him.
:: I haven't stopped listening to this playlist since Alicia posted it. Isn't it nice when someone does all the work for you? I do love these brothers. I breifly considered scrapping the whole handmade holiday idea and just buying everyone on my Christmas list their new album. We'll see. If by chance you're new to the Avett Brothers (which I kind of doubt) I recommend starting with I and Love and You and then jumping to Pretty Girl from Cedar Lane....then just listen to the whole playlist. Okay. Moving on.
:: The ACTUAL reason I started this post was to tell you about my guest post over at Sherbet Blossom! Hannah has started a new series called "May I Suggest." She has gathered a few bloggers to share some of their favorite things each Friday. Rad right? I'll be there sharing during the month of September. Today: the deep dark secrets of my beauty routine. (quit laughing, I kind of have one!) Go check it out!
Happy Weekend friends!
