Ella and I had to work off dessert. We went for some cold crisp fresh air. We actually had enough snow to break out the snowshoes.
She is a bit stiff tonight. Other than that, it was a quick weekend. I hope you had more excitement.
Do you find winter productive? How do you keep busy? I hope the weather was a bit calmer in your corner of the world.
We had an icy fog for two days. Not anything anyone wants to drive in, but it made for a beautiful walk.
I hope everyone had a productive weekend.
Kelly and I have always wanted to make a yule log. This was the year. We took the plunge and made the traditional Christmas cake.
3/4 c. Flour
1/3 c. Cocoa
1 t. Baking Powder
1/2 t. Salt
4 Eggs divided
3/4 c. Sugar
5 T. Sour Cream
1/4 c. Butter melted
1 t. Vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 17x12 inch jelly roll pan with parchment paper.
Whisk together dry ingredients. Then separate egg yolks from whites. Mix yolks with sugar and whip. Add sour cream, butter, and vanilla. Whip whites until soft peaks form then fold into cake mix. Spread into jelly roll pan and bake for 10-12 minutes. Slowly roll up.
My present is done. My husband built the last shelf for my sewing nook. Needless to say, I'm thrilled. Now back to quilting. Here are a few photos.
This weekend's addition to the sewing nook was a Murphy desk. I love it.
