Things on my list...

First of all, what a wonderful weekend. I made that jam I was waxing poetic about last Friday. And boy oh boy, I don't know what it is, but seeing all of those filled jars lined up on my counter makes me so happy. It must be some sort of nurturing/mothering thing deep down inside me, but I love knowing that we have fresh homemade jam at our complete and utter disposal, just waiting in the freezer to be devoured. I failed, however, to start on the next wedding cake round. I was distracted by the warm weather, and the friends that came over on Friday, the gin that we drank...the enchiladas that we ate...

Oh, things on my list. Right. Here, in no particular order, are the things that I would rather be making, than sitting in my office cube right now.

- These homemade cinnamon rolls. We are visiting my in-laws this weekend, and I plan to surprise them by making these on Saturday morning, and I can't wait. They won't know what hit them.

- This waffle-falafel. What? This makes me almost as happy as that jam. We eat falafel and hummus probably once a month or so from this place, and it's so so good that I've never considered making my own. Now I'm tempted...

So...what is on your list of things to make? It's ok if your list changes hourly. Mine does.

It makes me happy just to READ waffle-falafel. :) I made Paula Dean's peach cobbler yesterday. I love that stuff and the way you make it entertains me. Melt a stick of butter right in the dish you're making it in while the oven pre-heats? Love it. I can't really think of anything for the list but I could go for a nice tall glass of lemonade.

Now I MUST look up this peach cobbler. The problem I always have with anything peach is that it's so hard to find good peaches unless it's from a farmer's market! There is nothing worse than a bad, mealy peach.
