Let’s see here…..I wanted to mention that I made the Presidential dinner last night and it was indeed fantastic and totally Presidential. I used this rye bread that I got at the grocery that was both dill seed and caraway seed and that was nice. I just bought deli sliced swiss and that tasted good so I will remember that. I bought the tuna in a can from Whole Foods and it was less fishy than other brands so I will only buy that from now on, I think.
Moving on to cupcakes I made the Vanilla Cupcake recipe from Nigella Lawsom and thought it was about the WORST recipe I have ever made in my life, frosting and all (SORRY NIGELLA!!!!!!!). I’m wondering if I converted the flour measurements wrongly? It said 4 OZ. flour, soft butter and sugar and I ooked online for a conversion which told me that would be a 1/2 cup? Anyway, my husband called them greasy and that would be a good description! So if anyone has a tried and true vanilla cupcake recipe please pass it on or also tips about the measurement thing or about using Nigella’s recipe…..Thanks!
Lastly, I signed up for swap-bot and am very exicted to see how that turns out! I love sending things in the mail and also getting things in the mail PLUS surprises and making new friends so it couldn’t be a better mix for me, we’ll see. I will of course photograph the things I send and recieve and post about the whole thing in more depth as we go along!
Hope your weekend is going GREAT!
