So we finally got him.

Osama Bin Laden. A decade after he unleashed hell on the American people. About time. And now what? Does anything really change?

Food for thought.

Speaking of food.... Made strawberry-banana muffins yesterday. Different. Yummy. Easy enough to make.

The recipe is adapted from Joy of Baking

I doubled the recipe for my jumbo muffin pans and used 5 medium bananas. My friend Krysten suggested covering the top of the muffin with raw sugar before baking to give it a nice caramelized crust. Next time for sure.

Baked them for 30 minutes in my convection oven. I think it might have been a few minutes too long, but they were still good. No one in my Desert Yarnies group complained.

In other news.....

Finished the Evil Mau5 head today. For those of you who followed the Deadmau5 saga, after a week of paper mâché-ing, plastering, spraying, stretching, gluing, cutting, sticky fingers, headaches from glue spray, third degree burns from glue guns, frustration, aggravation and elation, the Evil/Dead Mau5 head is DONE!

My OCD tendencies are making me want to start over or at least attempt to repair some of the flaws, but the teenage boy says NO.

Now what? I suppose I could clean. Bake. Paint. Or start a better Mau5 head. Um no.

Maybe, just maybe, I could start writing my blog more regularly. That would be a good thing. Actually write the blog for all the things I knit, bake, think.

We will see. For now I am going to allow my brain to heal from the glue fumes and my fingers to heal from the glue gun. then we will see what happens.
