After my rant last night.. I got to work! I finally finished the superhero mirror, the cape had been throwing me for a loop for atleast a week. I sewed it all up and reattached all of the remade pieces and he looks like a new man!
I finished the Owliver picture with a little help from my Cricut. The letters and colors just didn't seem to fit together somehow.. so I reworked it. Now he looks ready to reach for the stars.
Lastly I finished my Williamesque cowboy. I found the missing bubble gun which I needed to make a template. I made him a hat, bubble gun and of course the obligatory bandana. Stick 'em up!
So now that I have bored you with my crafting adventures.. here is a something a little yummy!
I woke up this morning at 3am. Yes.. I know I know.. it is an awful hour to get up but for me it is completely Normal! Have I mentioned I have insomnia? Anyway, I woke up and had the urge to bake something yummy for the kids as a surprise. So I checked the fridge and found some cherries that were just about to expire. So I whipped up a quick cherry bread.
Here's the recipe!
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 cup canola oil
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups chopped cherries
Zest of 1 small orange (clementine)
dash of flax (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour two loaf pans. Mix flour, baking soda, baking power (and flax if using) in a bowl. Set aside. In mixer combine sugar and oil. Add in eggs one at a time until combined. Add vanilla and orange zest. Add dry ingredients to wet. Fold in cherries and walnuts. Bake for 1 hour or until knife comes out clean.
We like to enjoy ours with a spread of cream cheese and a big glass of COLD milk!
