I Made Muffins....O_O

Don't worry Martha, you're still safe as domestic queen. I'm liking these easy to follow packets.

Not sure about the trans fat thing though.

I prepared all my ingredients....

Read the instructions again, and again, and again....

How long are you supposed to preheat your oven for?

I also thought 17 - 19 minutes was pretty specific.

So there is all the stuff mixed in:

Looks like pre-muffin stuff.

The hardest part so far is getting all the gooey stuff into the tray.

I did something right. Something is happening...

Voila! Muffins:

They turned out a bit darker than I think they are supposed to be.

Maybe next time I lean more towards to 17 minutes instead of 19.

This was going through my head the whole time of this operation. Its that one line about bluffin with her muffin....:P

I Did It!!!!

I made chicken! OK, I didn't actually make the whole chicken, but I managed to cook the wings. They were rather good.

It started out like this:

Transformed into this:

Then became this:

I think I did rather did for the first time. Not nearly as much swearing as I thought there would be.

I've also been steadily working on my Ravolypmics project:

During my new status, I seemed to have lost weight. So instead of a cap sleeve top, it may just turn into a cap sleeve tunic. I will have to see how this goes for now.

So far, my favourite part is the twisted rib. My camera just will not do it justice. I hope you can make it out.

I've also learned why I have such trouble blocking things. It would appear I have a thief in my midst:

I'm sure this is not healthy. As long as Napoleon just picks out the pins and drops them, I think I will be OK. He doesn't really have any interest other than the noise they make when they hit the ground.

I also realize that I have pretty awesome friends. They make me feel very good about myself. I feel stronger than I have ever felt. They are a large part of that good feeling. Thank you everyone. I love you all.

The boys and I are too mellow now. We are off to continue knitting and watch some online episodes of Sanctuary. Maybe tomorrow I will try some other kitchen type stuff.
Happy Valentine's Day everyone.
