Let’s start with the promised post about the walnut brown sugar cake. This is from a recipe in the entenmann’s book of baking.
Looks delicious. The batter was wonderful (even though I know I’m not supposed to eat raw batter).
Looks kind of elongated because I baked it in a wider pan than the loaf pan it called for so I could bake it in the toaster oven.
The cake is dry and flavorless. Won’t be baking this one again.
But, all the other recipes from that cookbook that I’ve made have been delicious. This is my second try for this cake. In my kitchen, two strikes and you’re out. One try and a fail could be the baker’s fault. Two fails and we’re done.
I have a doctor’s appt today for a physical. Unfortunately, not sure how much of that we’ll get to because I was a bit ill yesterday and woke up this morning feeling like boiled death.
I don’t get many migraine’s…one every couple of years. This morning, I have a killer. I’m even worried about going to the doctor’s office because the bright lights are hurting my eyes and I don’t think they have dimmers in the exam rooms. And, I’m sore all over, like I was pulling a plow in my sleep last night.
I’ve taken two aleve, which usually work for any pain I have, including an allergy headache, which most OTC pain relievers don’t touch. But, it’s not doing much today. My neck and shoulders feel a bit less stiff, but that’s about it. So, it’s going to be a very quiet day. My boss won’t be excited because I took the last two friday’s off and am planning to take next friday off and I may have to take today off. That’s starting to sound like a trend. And if kinda is.
Last few weeks before school starts and I wanna spend some time with the kid…even though she was a royal pain the patootie last night and has been grounded from facebook for a week because of some posts that we thought were inappropriate for a 14 year old girl. I didn’t even ask why, because the one thing I’ve learned about teens, and the principal of the school just reinforced it yesterday in that meeting I attended, they don’t know why they do stupid stuff. So, no need to frustrate myself by asking. Take it down and suffer the consequences and move on.
Hope everyone is well. We’re expecting rain this weekend. That’s almost unheard of in Texas in August without a hurricane. It will be a nice change as temperatures will be cooler and the sky is overcast, so the sun’s not so bright.
