    1) Worked on my labels today.
    2) Placed orders for plastic jars, bottles etc. from a couple of vendors to try out.
    3) Ordered inkjet label samples from onlinelabels.com
    4) Now just sipping on some Four Roses Single Barrel Bourbon.

    Finally cleaning out my soap room (spare bedroom) and moving out to my witches den (enclosed/heated) carport. Still haven't made soap since last March. Need to get to it for all my shows starting in the spring.

    I taught my first class over the internet today. The students were in good spirits, but are not looking forward to an extended period of time at home. As oceanography and marine biology graduate students, most were just starting to turn their attention to getting ready for a very active season of field studies of the local estuaries and marshes or experiments in the lab.

    Buns are out of the oven and a Lazy Daisy Cake is in there now. I figured we need a sweet treat right about now. We'll have the buns with a bowl of Dutch Pea Soup for dinner with cake for dessert.

    @Misschief I'm jealous - those buns look so good! I have been trying to buy flour for weeks and there is none to be had anywhere around here (not that I've been out looking too many places, but still). No yeast either. Even Amazon and King Arthur are sold out online.

    I always have yeast in the freezer; I buy it in a 2 lb package in my local bulk store. When my husband went shopping today (we needed to do a little stocking up), he found flour in the grocery store and, later, when he went to Costco, he said they had plenty. Rice, however, was nowhere to be found. (We do have a fairly large Asian community here.)

    It's a hot milk cake (mix up the eggs and sugar, add the dry ingredients, then add hot milk and melted butter to the batter) topped with a mix of coconut, brown sugar, butter, and milk mixed together and heated until the brown sugar is melted. Then it's broiled until golden. It's an old recipe, from the 1940's apparently.

    I bet it goes fast. It would in my house, too! I’ve had to placate myself with Girl Scout thin mints and Fig Newtons lately, but you’re inspiring me to bake.
