Since Cari is not only talented and funny but also organized and on top of things, she has already led with the biggest news of the day in this here hemisphere, so Imma have to save that for last.
First, y'all need to know who won Feast! That contest ran, like, 400 years ago, but in case y'all haven't noticed, I kind of suck in the "professional blogger" department. Like: what is a calendar? Anyway. I'll shut up and go get you a winner finally...
JULIE, entry #43, congratulations! I will email you your e-book post haste. Or pre-haste. Whatever haste leaves room for me to be really slow about it.
And hey, since I totally just wrapped up the loose ends on one contest, how about I tell you about another one? My brother-in-law over at Aquinas and More is giving away a GORGEOUS Christmas rosary. The entry form is right HERE. Free and easy. What's not to love?
Oh my gosh, my friend Kate (who I think is blog-less? Kate, if you have a blog, tell me ASAP so I can read it and then link to you) was e-commiserating with me over our lack of skill in the departmento de culinario. She gave me full permission to post this photo, which we have entitled Well Endowed Snowmen:
Optional moral: never bake stuff
This week Katie said that King Lear was the funniest tragedy she's ever read and Lizzy said she was thinking about the physics of a certain enormous waterslide and is pretty sure you'd have to be over a certain weight in order for it to work safely and I was all.......0-0......"uh, yeah, what she said"
And meanwhile I'm breaking into a cold sweat because CLEARLY THERE IS NOTHING LEFT I CAN TEACH THEM.
Ring the alarm, man.
The grain free thing is going veeeeeeeeeeeeery slowly still. We tried some banana muffins made with coconut flour this week and they were just...meh. Paul actually ate them, so that's good, but Cecilia was straight up grossed out and I had to slather mine in butter in order to enjoy it, which probably isn't great.
Do you have good coconut flour recipes? It's the only non-grain flour I have at the moment. If you do, link em in the comments, will ya? Gracias.
Finally! Most important news in America time!
See you tonight, party people! Start the actual movie credits (not previews!) at 9 est.
