The house has smelled like caramel for over a week. It’s not a bad problem to have, but I now have my homemade caramel recipe memorized. More about that on Monday. You might think that’s a weird lead-in to a fashion post, but it’s relevant, I swear.
See, fall is my favorite time to bake. The weather has finally cooled down. I can open the windows. I get to use pumpkin and cinnamon and apples and nuts. I always feel guilty for not using strawberries, blueberries, blackberries and peaches in the summer, you know? But no more! Anyway, so I’ve baked something pretty much every day for the last two weeks. Good for Doug’s coworkers, our gaming group and our church friends, bad choices for breakfast.
The point is that I had to get out of the house. Can’t bake if you’re not home, right? And that meant that I had to put on real clothes. Because Juicy sweats, a t-shirt and a fleece pull-over are not appropriate for leaving the house unless you’re in college. I haven’t been in college for…a while.
So today I’m headed out to some estate sales, not because I need anything, but because I need to stay the heck away from the boiling sugar syrup. Have a great weekend!
