Apparently, I smile a lot. I didn’t know that. I hope it is not a bad thing, but people have been referring to my smiles. I guess I am glad that I smile a lot more than I frown? That way I think it IS a good thing.
Okay, back to the real business. I have been busy. Editing friends’ dissertation and trying to finish my qualifying writing. I hope I can accomplish some by the end of today.
I made some Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies again.
The difference was… I used Bob’s Red Mill Organic Wholewheat Pastry Flour instead of the Fresh and Easy Organic Wholewheat Flour that I used before… And the difference was enormous! So I need to use less oil when I use Bob’s Red Mill one, maybe half as much oil (not butter). So 1/4 cup of oil instead of 3/4 cup of butter in the recipe. Maybe because one is pastry and one is not? Or one is more finely ground? I don’t know.
I went to the farmer’s market during the weekend, but I couldn’t find fennel. So I have to go to the local health store, Mother’s Market for it. When I have time to do that… I will get to it eventually. I never played with fennel, but I think this would be a good time to catch up on how to cut fennel.

This is a G if you can’t tell.
Tree bark! In real life it looked prettier and more colorful!
