Back with Bread and Article News + Pumpkin Seeds Recipes?

Monday, October 12

Currently Listening to "Maybe," Ingrid Michaelson

Happy Monday, bloggers! I really really miss being in the blog world... I feel like I'm missing out on so much. But I've been spending most of my spare time on school and that article...

more on that in a minute :)

I can't believe it's October 12th already. I swear, yesterday was September 1st...

Jeremyandgirls: THANK YOU so much for the homemade pumpkin spice latte recipe! I am so looking forward to trying that! I love fall so much...

Thank you all for the comments about the blanket! Sad to say I haven't made much progress since I had a lot of papers due last week, but I'm hoping to get some quality knitting time in this week :)

Kathy, I loved your idea about making one big blanket for both the twins! 'Cause you're right, they'll be little enough to share it for a long time! And yes, Sarah, you should start knitting!!! As if you don't have enough to do with your new little baby :)

Cooking Update:
(plus flowers from my Mom!)

There, ladies and gentlemen, is a loaf of bread that I baked. That's right. With my busy schedule, I found time to bake bread.

(Thanks again for that loaf pan, Peggy!)

How does she do it?!

Simple... Betttttttty Crocker :)

See... Mrs. Crocker has these new boxed muffin mixes out... and on the back of the box is an additional recipe for baking BREAD instead of muffins!

Simple and delicious :)

And noooo, I wasn't paid for that mini-advertisement... I just truly appreciate products that make life happy.

Other Updates...

I haven't updated in forever and I am SO SORRY! But it's for good reason...

My article is going to be published :)

They checked yes!!

It took a LOT of work, and caused me to fall a liiitttttttle behind in grad school projects, so I've been running around catching up.

But it's definitely very exciting. I keep remembering that it happened and breaking out into a random smile... lol. I know, I know, corny. But I just can't wait to see my name, my words, my research in PRINT!!

As far as catching up on everything... my plan is to catch up this week, to carve pumpkins this weekend, and to bake some pumpkin seeds too...

Anyone have any good recipes I can try?


I also promise to catch up on your blogs-- I am so sorry I haven't been around! But I've been thinking about you (and keeping up with some of you busy people on Twitter!) and can't wait to see what you've been up to lately!

For now-- have a great week!

Look at you and your bread makin' skills! I got all, wow - she bakes bread from scratch? Hahaha, better than I could ever do! I suck at baking/cooking. Looks delish.

And that is so beyond exciting that you're going to be published. I would be just as giddy as you. Woo hoo!

So many congrats on getting your article published! Such an achievement!

Peggy on October 12, 2009 at 1:16 PM said...

I agree, box mixes are great. Brownies from a box work for a church potluck in a pinch!

Congrats on your article. You're definitely on your way. :-)

Good job on getting published. It does feel incredible :)

Oh, and don't apologize for not keeping up with blogs. Starting grad school is enough to drive anyone insane.

Kim on October 13, 2009 at 7:02 AM said...

Welcome back to the blog world! AND CONGRATULATIONS! You are awesome. You need to send that article my way! I want to see your words and ideas published! :)

jeremyandgirls on October 13, 2009 at 11:15 AM said...

I was thinking about you...and I've decided that I have NO IDEA how you make it all work. I'm only taking ONE class, ONLINE and I can barely manage that one. Yeesh! I've decided that you are (and actually have been) officially AWESOME. I know that I'm only your blog stalker, but I am seriously so proud of you and all the hard work that you put into school. This stuff isn't easy - yet you make it seem like relatively smooth sailing. Again, you're awesome. : )

Sarah on October 13, 2009 at 11:42 AM said...

Yay! Congratulations!

Glad you found time to blog again, I missed your posts!

Sarah on October 13, 2009 at 11:43 AM said...

Oh, and I meant to say, my sister taught me to knit! I'm working on a scarf for the peanut now! :) It's so much fun!

Kathy on October 13, 2009 at 6:30 PM said...

Aw thanks for the mention!

Huge congratulations. That is really really fun.

As for pumpkin recipes I'll get crackin on one for you!

LOVE the idea of "muffin bread"... would be fun to make brownie bread!

Samantha on October 16, 2009 at 2:58 PM said...

Mmmm... I love lemon poppy seed muffins! I think I'd also love that bread!

Congrats on your article being published! :)
