Loose ends

It felt like a weekend of tidying up loose ends. Saturday was errands, including returning the wrong bike tire and picking up the correct one (Schwalbe "green guard" Marathon != Schwalbe Marathon Plus (blue kevlar, much better)).

We received a gift of Anna apples from a friend's tree, so I peeled, cored, and sliced them last week. I used some to make an apple-rhubarb hippie coffeecake about a week ago - threw in a handful of buckwheat flour and some almond flour, as well as Herman. It was delicious. Saturday, I made a French apple cake, also delicious:

Also pancakes topped with strawberries out of the freezer. Maybe I will make some pumpkin apple bread soon, too. Pumpkin puree is slightly more challenging to use up, but I'm a determined person. I think I'm now down to potato flour, rice flour, semolina, a bit more almond flour, and the random gluten-free flour from [personal profile] scrottie's mom. I will now start subbing in the gluten-free flour as I would use soy flour, seeing as it's made of roasted chickpea flour plus rice flour. The potato and rice flours are small amounts and will keep. That's all ignoring the 20-lb bag of wheat bran and the 25-lb bag of wheat germ that were purchased for the crickets.

Played board games at the Palo Verde Lounge on Saturday night.

On Sunday, I used underglazes to try and paint designs on two more porcelain bowls. I am going to try and spray on a thinner layer of Klear glaze, and will leave a note with each bowl noting that they're porcelain. We shall see. These things are always experiments, as I've noted.

I also started the house packing process by disassembling Old Faithful. Two weeks until showtime. And so it begins again (ugh).
