When I last blogged it was the middle of December 2013. Happy New Year everybody!!
Going back to December, I baked some ginger cookies for a friend's Christmas present:
I attended my brother's fiancé's birthday and was asked to bake the cake….gluten free red velvet:
We went out for New Year's Eve with some friends and I got a little dressed up:
I baked some pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal cookies for my hairdresser for Christmas. He does such a great job and totally deserves them:
One day we were out and stopped in at Grocery Outlet. I couldn't resist taking a picture of these. I do wonder what crunchy flavor tastes like, but didn't feel the need to actually purchase them:
One of my friends had a birthday and I baked him some lemon pudding cookies with white chocolate chips and dried blueberries. They were a big hit:
For Valentine's Day, my husband made me this cute card representing all the kitties that we feed. The tabby and calico are Malika and Callie. The black ones are all feral (well…semi feral because they're kind of used to us) and the grey/white one is also a feral-ish cat that hangs out in our front yard.
On 2/15 we helped my brother move from his apartment into his fiancé's house and I brought some gf red velvet brownies as sustenance:
On the work front, we are testing out if adding fiber to the diet of dialysis patients will reduce toxins that build up in their blood. We thought that maybe making a cracker would be an easy way to eat it. These are a couple of attempts I made at home.
On the running front, I've been doing some running. Foot/ankle is still weird but kind of moved to my arch…hoping it all balances out soon….getting frustrating.
On a happy note, my birthday was on Wednesday. I deferred the part/cake baking to Saturday (yesterday). This is the cake for this year, gluten free chocolate cake with cherry glaze:
Something to ponder until next time :-)
