Hey, Happy Epiphany everybody!!!
In other news:
Isn't it always the case that when you make a New Years resolution or change, that things you never wanted to do (or rarely wanted to do) that completely conflict with your original desire step in to make it THAT much harder.
Last year, I gave up soda. That was a big deal, because it was making me feel awful, and growing up, we drank Pepsi like we should've been drinking water. When I was thirsty, I craved bubbles. But we're at a year plus now, and I feel so much better.
But, given my PCOS and weight issues, I wanted to get a couple of other personal demons out of the diet, so this year, it is wheat and sugar. Maybe not forever on the wheat, but I want to give my body a good long break. That should help my insulin situation considerably (and I've already lost 3 lbs.). But my MIL got me this great cookbook that I've wanted for a long time, Jamie at Home (Jamie Oliver - the Naked Chef guy), and in it, is the most amazing pie. So today, being Epiphany, all bets are off, and I made the pie. I have never been able to master pie crust, but I think I have succeeded. Now I want to try the savory and make a chicken pot pie. But it will have to wait. And the artisanry of it always pushes me toward bread....waaaah.
I love the look of the cinnamon and raw sugar on the crust....mmmm
