If I'm lucky, I might post two new recipes this week but that's about it. I had to concentrate on using up what what I have on hand this week and also keeping things simple. New recipes got pushed to the wayside.
I didn't bake for work this weekend because I baked cupcakes for a picnic on Sunday and I knew there would be leftovers to take to work. I used boxed mix! I really haven't found basic yellow or chocolate cupcake recipes that I'm head of heels in love with yet and I wasn't up for yet another disappointment so I went with the always more-than-servicable (if you ask me) boxed mix. A few months ago I saw they were selling small boxes of cake mix that made only 12 cupcakes which I thought was a great idea but I don't think it caught on. I couldn't find them anywhere. So I had to make two regular boxes of cake mix since I wanted both chocolate and vanilla cupcakes. That's a lot of cupcakes.
I made them Halloween themed to use up some Halloween sprinkles. I have a sprinkle problem. I was storing them in the cupboard but they were getting lost in there so I pulled them all out and put them in another container. I have a lot of sprinkles! I really need to start making more recipes that use sprinkles.
I bought a Taste of Home annual recipe book (in new condition) for 25 cents at a yard sale this weekend. I don't find too many cookbooks at yard sales, never mind really good ones and this one has a lot of great recipes in it. I also got a tortilla press for $1. It's not a great press but it's something I've wanted but knew I probably wouldn't use very much so I can get it out of my system for $1 (or maybe I might decide it's worth investing in a quality press).
I will only be in my 30s for a few more days. *sigh*
