Charity restored.  
I had two glasses of wine and a snow cone... It really doesn't take much to make me happy.

Oh, and this:

It's the stuff from which I made a totally life changing sorbet.  I mean it.  It will skew the way you look at the way you all live your life.  (With the exception of heyurs , possibly.)

But I also made Orange Poppyseed Cookies to go with.  And some Parmesan Pepper Bread, which also turned out to be a spiritual experience.

Parmesan Pepper Bread

1 1/2 c water
4 tsp olive oil
4 c bread flour
2/3 c grated Parmesan cheese  (I used the real stuff rather than Kraft  :D)
4 teaspoons cane sugar
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp freshly ground black and green peppercorns
2 tsp yeast ( I used 2 packets)

And then I stuck it in the bread machine.  Hee.

Yeah, that's all.  Happy Sunday.

I need to drag out my parent's bread maker. You're giving me too many good recipes.

It's so EASY! And totally responsibility free. You stick in the ingredients and... POOF! 3 hours later: BREAD. Yum.

Do you need me to do a bread post so that you know how to do it the real way?

No, smart aleck; I figured since I made sorbet and cookies and brownies and stuffed chicken breasts and deviled eggs and salad and twice baked potatoes and baked beans that I could let the BREAD slide.

Or maybe I was just being lazy. :D

I reiterate: Pthththththth.

Uh huh... Suuuuuuuuuure.

Increased workload does not excuse sloppy procedures.

I almost bought an ice cream machine this past summer... I think I'm going to have to get it now, because I have to make that sorbet!
