I wanted to make something nice for my father, since my parents are coming here for the day and all of my cooking is always directed towards my mother's tastes. I decided to make rustic beer bread, which is incredibly easy although it takes a lot of time to rise. I don't drink beer, and had one extra bottle of my father's still in the fridge from the last time he visited, so I decided to make it into this beer bread for him. I made it strictly of whole wheat, which apparently isn't the best for a fluffy bread. This is more like a crusty bread for use with soups or jam, not exactly a sandwich type. Next time I make it I'd probably do half white flour or bread flour and half whole wheat to make it a little less heavy. It's pretty darn healthy this way, though! I hope he likes it. Here's the recipe before I haplessly modified it into something way too heavy.
( THE RECIPE )
I got my second monitor working! It was an old out of date one from my father's office, and I've had it here for what seems like ages trying to get the right adapters and such. Aah~ The amount o space is amazing. I was able to move over so many of my little programs that are always open onto it, leaving the larger desktop to focus on other things.
Oh, and I've changed my icon. I really like this original character. Heading to my parents house for a few days tomorrow. It will be nice to get out of the -20f cold! Brr~!
I love it here. We had our first real dusting of snow that stuck around last night. I can't wait to witness a great white-out snowstorm here. I hate that when it gets dark I can't see anything at all outside, because it means I miss any good storms that happen at night. >.<; It's just so dark that if I have to walk out to the road at night I have to take a lantern like it's the 1800's or i'll wander into the road.
Groceries are too expensive. >.<; For some reason it's okay to charge 5 dollars more for everything just because I live in the middle of nowhere. At least it's not like Alaska where a carton of milk is 15 dollars, but STILL.
I wonder if I'll ever get bored of all the nothing around here. I sorta doubt it. Give me time to work without distraction, sleep and eat when I want, and turn my music up loud without any parents, roommates or neighbors to yell at me about it. XD
you are darkredviolet
Your dominant hues are red and magenta. You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just can't leave behind. You can influence others on days when you're patient, but most times you just want to go out, have fun, and do your own thing.
Your saturation level is high - you get into life and have a strong personality. Everyone you meet will either love you or hate you - either way, your goal is to get them to change the world with you. You are very hard working and don't have much patience for people without your initiative.
Your outlook on life is slightly darker than most people's. You try to see things for what they are and face situations honestly. You'd rather get to the point than look for what's good.

It's all true, besides the "Just want to go out" part. I don't like to go out much. XD
For anyone wondering- I made it from TN back to NY yesterday in one piece. One bruised, exhausted, mentally shattered piece, but one piece all the same. I only got ran off the road one time by some sleepy trucker, and my only other issues were a landslide of Murakami Maki doujinshi when a box tipped over in the car and almost drowning myself by pouring coffee up both nostrils when I accidentally hit a bump while drinking it. And possibly damage to my liver and kidneys from something like 8 energy drinks and a few of those 5 hour energy shots. God those make me feel like shit, but at least they keep me alert. XD It took 4 full tanks of gas and was supposed to take 17 hours, but somehow I did it in 15.5 hours. Apparently there's a wormhole somewhere on I-81 North...
Anyway, I'm staying at my moms for a few days as it's still a few more hours to my new hours further upstate. Relaxing and visiting with everyone before heading up there on Saturday to delivery my belongings and get set up. I'll be sure to take tons of pictures.
Kau-tan's still kicking somehow. She's currently sleeping on my desk. ^^
I finally uploaded my current wallpapers folder for anyone who's brave enough to download it. It's mainly Tiger & Bunny and Blue Exorcist (LOTS OF AMAIMON!!) but there's ALLLLLLLL sorts of things in there. Shota, 18+ porn, probably a few pictures of my dog, maybe if you're lucky some duplicates! There are things that will probably scare you, or make you rage, make your knees shake, or seriously confuse you. I take no responsibility for that. Almost all of them were grabbed from Pixiv. I own none of these and have created none of these myself. The file is super large at 1.06 GB! GRAB IT.
Thanks for always being awesome, everyone.
Post your favorite picture in the comments if you have a moment! Here's how to post a pic in a comment. LINK
Anyway, here's my newest treasure! Also, a bunch of doujinshi came in today, so I intend to spend the rest of today scanning and cleaning pages. ^^
...and so here we are. Welcome back to Poor Fangirl Recipes. I can't believe we're at no. 7 already. haha Click the I'm Poor tag below for more if you're interested.
I drink a LOT of coffee. I have a small coffee maker on my desk and make fresh coffee several times a day. Recently if I'm craving something sweet, I'll stir in half a packet of hot cocoa mix. It's not too sweet (since I don't put sugar in my coffee) and with a touch of milk or creamer (or powdered creamer if you're as broke as I am) it makes a delicious semi-sweet chocolatey treat with a punch of caffeine.
I know, I know... not terribly creative. BUT SO GOOD! Especially if you have a pinch of cinnamon/nutmeg/vanilla to add to it. :3 The whole thing costs pennies, since a whole box of cocoa mix is only ~$1.50.
