Friday, 27 January is National Chocolate Cake Day in the U.S. Why, I have no clue. There appears to be no corporate sponsorship (unlike the Pie Day earlier in the month). I brought mini chocolate cake donuts to volunteer-work.

21 January 2012
Snowed in today. Much thesis-ing, besides making sushi filled with a rice-and-lentil moosh, blending hommos, and baking & chilling coconut cream pie. At this point, I still owe a "how to frost a cake" post and a "bread pudding" post.
Good bring-to-work/class fare: I made these bars many times in spring 2011 since these are a convenient way to use up bananas fast going south or a third of a jar of apple butter or a bit of pumpkin...you get the idea.

A Bouquet of Shout-Outs
This being the month of January, it’s time I took stock of a few things. Some people (who are not related to me) have been incredibly good to me in the past few weeks whom I’d like to recognize.

Today, besides thesis work and figuring out my operations here (laundry, organizing my food in the pantry and freezer), I made a big entrée to portion out and freeze for munching throughout the year. I ate some soup on Thursday that I made in May, hence why I say that I will eat frozen entrees throughout the year.
It’s Caturday, and I remembered I needed to make a blog post for this week in order to keep up my minimum. It’s been a transition week as I’m living in Alexandria and volunteering in D.C. for the month of January. My health is in transition too; I picked up a cold as I adjusted to the early hours I keep while volunteering in the city.
