Okay, so the most exciting thing to ever happen to my internet self happened today. A recipe I posted on Tasty Kitchen was featured by Pioneer Woman (WHO I LOVE.)!!! I posted the recipe ages ago, and she picked it out to make and photograph in detail. AAAAHHHHHH!!!!! SO EXCITING!! This completely made my day.

I finished reading The Curse of Chalion today, by Lois McMaster Bujold. I LOVED IT. so good. I couldn't put it down, which rarely happens with me and books lately. Even books I'm enjoying, I can't seem to finish. This one I did though. Time to pick up some more Bujold, as Brooke has been recommending for years.

OK, homemade yogurt is really good. It's just barely sour, and has a really smooth and creamy texture. LOVE IT. yet another weird thing I now know how to make from scratch. yogurt and fruit is my new breakfast of choice, so this rules.

apparently creme fraiche is equally easy to make, and it's done in the same process as yogurt. you just use the bacterial culture from buttermilk instead. sweet!

I can't get used to my Wacom tablet. it just looks like chicken scratch when I use it. computer artsy people, how long did it take you to get used to it?

also: masala chai by te (Ethical bean's tea brand) = best pre-packaged chai I've tasted yet.
