Temperature: -2.6 degrees Celsius. Just below freezing.
Christmasy reading: "Schnitzle, Schnotzle, and Schnootzle", by Ruth Sawyer. Really. The version we have is slightly different from the one linked, but it's close.
In the oven today: Lemon Poppyseed Shortbread.
In the breadmaker: Whole wheat bread, not low-sodium. I tried my favourite whole-wheat recipe last week with a lot less salt, and the whole thing caved in. From now on I'll stick to the cookbook recipes when I'm baking no-salt bread. (Which is not a favourite thing to eat around here, but ya gotta do what ya gotta do...)
Have to make more: hot chocolate mix--Crayons just finished off the last of it.
What I'm procrastinating on: writing Christmas cards.
What I learned this week: Yes, you can put mini marshmallows in muffins. If you're careful.
What else I learned: You can't make fudge in the crockpot--Steph says so, and she should know--but you can make soap.
What I'm not trying to think about: Canadian politicians. Send them all some melty crockpot fudge. [UPDATE: well, maybe except for the premier of Newfoundland. Thanks, Linda! You can send him some of your nice chocolate instead.]
