Spring Into Donuts: StencilGirl Column
Spring is around the corner and I have been contemplating what is on my to-do list and what I have to look forward too.
#1 School is almost out
While this may not mean much to most of you, I am getting SO excited thinking of all the time I am going to have to devote to other things. What other things you may ask? Well, I don’t know. Maybe I can sit and read a book during the week (gasp) or complete the pile of craft projects that I stare at wistfully every time I pass my craft desk. Who knows, I’m game for whatever, as long as it is not school.
Weeding is still the least of my favorite outdoor activities but I love my garden. That is, when I get a harvest (no thanks to the wabbits this past summer). This year, the hubby and I are talking about expanding. With all the food shortages over the past year, we thought it might be nice to grow things that we eat often. I would even love to can any extras that we might grow. The thought has me excited so I am off to do some planning.
What do you plant? Do you plant the same thing every year or rotate?
This week I tried some new things. I had extra sourdough discard so I made some sourdough bagels and topped them with everything seasoning.
My daughter is turning 5 tomorrow and she requested a donut tower for her birthday party. She reminds us that she isn’t a “cake-girl” or a “cookie-girl” so this was what we came up with. I needed to practice before her party to see if they would even turn out so I made a batch of these are Krispy Kreme copycat donuts. Everyone liked them so I will be whipping up another batch of these this weekend.
I am joining the Tea Day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea today was sent to me by Natural Puerh. I am drinking the huangshan MaoJian green tea. It was mild and smooth tasting. I am not the greatest at describing tastes so I guess I will just describe it as pleasant and not as strong as some other green teas that I have tasted. I am looking forward to having this again.
Happy Tea Day,
