About a week ago, I started a new project. I thought I'd update y'all with my progress.
I have now accomplished 1/5 of my #47: Learn to make 5 new desserts. (edit 7/28: The number has been upped to 10! I have over 2 years left here, after all!)
I went blueberry picking with a friend last Friday, and after using my blueberries in muffins and smoothies, I decided to try cobbler. Well, actually, I was planning on making dump cake, but couldn't find a recipe that fed anything less than the entire crew of B's submarine (due to the use of a an entire box of yellow cake mix, which I am not willing to halve/eighth/sixteenth-ify), so I settled on dump cake's closest relative: cobbler. The great thing about the recipe I used is that it only made 6 servings, and it was easy to halve and make in a loaf pan instead of a big casserole dish. I won't be posting the recipe, but I will tell you that it was given to me by an old friend.
In my single-minded focus to get rid of all my blueberries (I only had a pound to begin with, but nobody but myself to eat them!), I forgot to take pictures of the process and even the final product. Well, lucky for you, I still have 1/3 of it left (to be eaten shortly), so here's my slightly-disgusting picture of my first-ever cobbler. (That pan is gonna be hell to scrub tonight.) What I loved about making this was that I inadvertently learned how to make pie filling, which will come in handy when I tackle my #15 (making a pie from scratch).
As for some of my other projects, I have indeed started a coloring book (#46), and I am 8 chapters through Genesis (#27).
I have plans for Friday to knock out a full task, but I'll save the details for then. Check out the rest of my list here!
