Once again I didn’t get done what I wanted and needed to get done. It didn’t help that my grandmother was at home and she kept bothering me with stuff she wanted done that she could’ve done herself. It’s like the more I try to get accomplish the less I do. I haven’t even pull out a bag so I can pack for Chicago and I have a lot of stuff to do on Tuesday. I’m just going to have to get up early tomorrow and run the one errand I have to do and come back and finish up the mess I have upstairs. I definitely need to get my sleep back to something that resembles normal since I’ll be going to school full time this semester. I also have a post I need to put together for Cooking Hijinx since I remembered to take step by step pictures of one of the cheesecakes I made last week.


Looks like I have a full day ahead of me tomorrow. I have to go buy books for school, buy the rest of the ingredients for two cheesecakes I’m making, hopefully buy boxes to ship them in and make the cheesecakes. With all the running around I’ll be doing I probably won’t make them until Thursday. Actually now that I think about it I’ll have to make them then because I’m going to Chicago next week and the week after that school starts back. So the cheesecakes I’m making are Bourbon Chocolate Pecan and Caramel Pumpkin Pecan Gingersnap. I think they will be the first entries on Cooking Hijinx.


My grandmother and aunt want to go grocery shopping tomorrow. On Christmas Eve. I hope we go early and that there’s not a crowd. I figured that since we’re going I might as well pick up what I need to make cheesecakes for two of my friends. I still need to figure out how I’m going to ship them; especially since I’m cooking them in a water bath. To all those reading this Happy Festivus!


I actually started working on my paper that’s due tomorrow. I think when I get done it’ll be another B and I’ll keep that grade in the class. Before I started to write it though I spend most of the day looking for sources to site and eating Nutella out the jar. I don’t know what took me so long to try it. Now I want to bake something with it. When I do that will be on my other blog; which I started to set up last night. There’s already a Tumblr with tons of recipes that I hope to try one day. I also signed up for a Twitter with that name which I’ll most likely connect to the the other two sites.
