Lemon Bars Update!

Okay, looks like I'm gonna have to re-write that recipe soon!

We're having some family over for brunch on Saturday, and I've been asked to make more lemon bars! Yay!

That's all I wanted to say right now, just a tiny little update

Lemon Bars

The lemon bars... were not a complete failure...

They didn't end up looking real pretty, but the taste more than made up for it!

There was a little too much crust, a little too little filling and one of the batches didn't set quite right. But over all they were fun to make, and ended up tasting pretty damned good!

I think the recipe I used was part of the problem. The ingredients were fine and all, it was just poorly written. I found the directions a bit confusing and hard to follow. To be fair though, I probably should have read through the entire thing before starting. What I need, is a recipe that I can read while I making it. For example, something that might say:

1. Preheat oven

2. Get out pan and grease

3. Get 2 cups sugar

I have no use for a recipe that makes me crazy.

"Add two cups of sugar... Got it...oh shit! I was supposed to add that to the second mixture! (frantically scooping out sugar) And I needed to melt the butter first! Oops!"

Yeah, I'm not real organized...

I'm probably going to re-write the recipe to suit my needs, but if anyone wants to try the original, here it is:

Until next time folks!

Okay. There's been a real lack of Getting-Shit-Done around here. And I apologize for that.

See the thing is, when I get into something new ( a new book series, new movie, new band) I tend to get a little... obsessed.

A few weeks ago I discovered Watchmen. Where's it's been all my life, I don't know. But now it's here and it's here to stay. So that's what I've been obsessed with for the last several weeks, and I will eventually post about it.

Oh! I also have to post about seeing Iron Man 2, because holy-fishpaste it was awesome!

In the mean time, I've only gotten one thing on my list checked off. #9. Transfer my iTunes to my laptop. And I didn't so much as transfer it as get it working on the old desktop, but that's good enough for me.

Okay, that's it for now. But keep an eye out for posts about: Watchmen, Iron Man 2 and the amazing Lemon Bars I'm going to make!
