First Snow!

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

I woke up this morning to the first snow of the season! There was a thick dusting or a thin layer, either one, coating the world outside. By afternoon, when this picture was taken, some of it had settled, some had melted and some had just gotten dirty.

A woman needs a career like a fish needs a bicycle.

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

Though taken out of context, the above title is my favorite Maureen Dowd quote. Yes, Maureen Dowd said that, but when she did, it looked a lot more like this:
If the new ethos is “a woman needs a career like a fish needs a bicycle,” it won’t be healthy.
Are young women rejecting the feminist […]

Lactose and Gluten-free Banana Bread

Sunday, October 16th, 2005

Making gluten-free bread can be a real challenge. With baking powder based breads, though, it is possible and pretty darn easy.

I took this recipe from Betty Crocker and tweaked it so it won’t make me sick.
Preheat oven to 350.
1 cup sugar (for less sweet bread, reduce to 3/4 cup)
2 tablespoons shortening
2 eggs
3/4 […]

Yesterday I saw a bumper sticker that said something like, “SUV’s are big cars for little minds…” on a Ford Explorer. Entertaining.

DSL Promotion and Sea Salt

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

My brother got a promotion and I still don’t have DSL! Woohoo!
My brother now engineers IP’s. Whatever that means. But he won’t have to deal with customers anymore and he gets to learn more about and do what he really likes! I am so proud of him!
Still, no DSL. Did […]

Gluten and Lactose Free Mediterranean Pizza

Saturday, October 8th, 2005

I just tossed this together tonight and was stunned by how incredible it tasted! It’s been a very long time since I’ve had a good pizza. I’ve created lots of very unsatisfying substitutes for pizza and it’s been depressing. Tonight, however, my unsatisfying pizza life is now over!

DSL to Dial-up

Tuesday, October 4th, 2005

I can’t get over how much going from DSL to dial-up sucks. The last time I had dial-up the internet wasn’t at the point where using dial-up was pretty much pointless. Dial-up is better than not having any access at all, but if I had no access at all, I could at least […]
