B4L

Enjoying the new Bat for Lashes today. It's way less boring than her last album, Fur & Gold. Dark, but not heavy. Good, but not stunning. She is also constantly being compared to Bjork and Kate Bush, both formidable musicians, which I think is sorta unfair. Let the girl do her own thing!

And new Neko Case! Man I love her voice.

Yesterday I got all worked up into a baking frenzy and then burned out at the end of the night. Made homemade pasta sauce (tomatoes, garlic, onion, spinach, zucchini, sausage), baked no-time bread, peach-blackberry crisp, and caramelized brussel sprouts with bacon. Too much cleaning and fullness!

Photo doesn't do justice. This came out steaming and bubbling after I opened the cover. Pretty healthy dessert! Fruit, flour, sugar, spices, oats, butter.

5 minutes of kneading, 50 seconds of microwave time, 15 minutes of rise time.

Result! A fragrant and very dense loaf of white whole wheat bread. Will try the no-knead recipe on some weekend.
