On the Menu
The Blue Boar Inn Pork Tenderloin was delicious! A nice sweetness without being overwhelming. I would highly recommend it.
This weekend I’m going to try a recipe called Po’ Man’s Bread from a church fundraising cookbook. I couldn’t find an equivalent recipe online. If it turns out, I’ll share it here. It does require 2 egg whites, so I’ll have to substitute something. I’m considering some of the substitutions listed here. I have the Energ-G egg replacer, but I generally don’t get good results with it. I’m leaning toward the vinegar and baking powder right now. I work with a trained pastry chef, so perhaps I’ll bend her ear and see what she thinks would work best. It looks like this is a flat bread, so that makes it a little easier. Maybe.

This is an art journal page in progress. So excited to get a dip pen and play with it!
The Song of the Week
Good Things that Happened this Week
- I forgot Boss’ Day, so I somehow ended up promising my boss an abstract Elvis painting. I’ve been working on that this week, and I love how it’s turning out.
- I won Table Topics at my Toastmasters meeting on Tuesday. I was given a headline and had to convince an editor that it belonged on the cover of the National Enquirer. My assigned headline: Fisherman Attacked by Giant Shrimp. Hey, that story practically writes itself!
- I won Best Speech at my Toastmasters meeting on Wednesday for giving my 10th Ice Breaker. It was the weirdest Ice Breaker ever, but since I’ve done so many, there’s just no point in doing the same old thing.
- I’m doing a blog-a-thon tonight (Thursday) with 2 good friends. Mexican food, margaritas, laughs, and blogging. What could be better?
