I tried to make a panettone today. Is it just me or does it sort of look like a mushroom cloud?
I used a small coffee can for the mold. It turned out kinda dense and tough. Maybe I over-kneaded it or something. Smelled good while it was baking though. And what the heck is citron? I bought a little container of it to put in the bread and when I sniffed it I thought for sure it had ruined.
My panettone's will be store bought from now on.
My lovely girl child is suffering from a not so lovely rash called pityriasis rosea.
Of course like most things, they don't really know what causes it, but it's most likely something that occurs after you have a virus that runs its course in 6 to 12 weeks. (I think we're on about week 4)
It starts with a "herald" patch then spreads from there, but usually not on parts of the skin that get sun exposure. Although she has one on her jaw.
If she gets any on part of her that can be seen I don't know if they'll let her go to school, (even though it's supposedly not really contagious) it really has quite an alarming appearance. I may have to dress her in a turtleneck and ski mask.
I started to put an actual picture of the rash, but decided that would disgust many of you, and the girl would probably hurt me in my sleep.
I'm feeling quite a bit more ready for Christmas now than I was this time yesterday.
And I just refuse to stress about anything that I haven't accomplished yet.
And...I think I need more shoes :D
