It's like Christmas all over again!

I added a bunch of new friends over the past couple days. I'd like to extend a warm welcome to everyone.

Today I worked a little more on my yukata page, adding a section with more details on how to alter the basic pattern to make a man's yukata.

I would also like to mention that the extra basket on my bike makes it *loads* easier to carry my groceries back from the store. I don't have to dangle the bags precariously from my handlebars anymore.

Today I succumbed to temptation and bought a food mill. I want to make some things like curry paste that simply don't work in my blender. They cling to the sides and refuse to mix. So I thought maybe a mill would work better. As soon as I brought it home, I decided to make some walnut/strawberry cupcakes to take into work tomorrow. The recipe called for chopped walnuts, so I thought I'd try the mill out. I poured in the walnut halves.

It made walnut butter in three seconds flat. That is one powerful machine. Ah, how I love my appliances.

Tomorrow is my first day of work after winter break. I don't have any classes though. After tomorrow there's a three-day weekend, and classes actually start next Tuesday.
