Scripture Cake and other important news

First of all: I know everyone has been hanging on the edge of their seats waiting to hear what I did with my dandelion greens, so I'll fill you in. I did absolutely nothing with them. That's right, I threw the wilted, slimy remains in my compost pile this morning. Yeah, I'm a lazy jerk.

But, on a more positive note, I've been eating my favorite breakfast of ALL TIME this entire week (sorry for the terrible pictures, my camera sucks almost as much as my photo-taking ability):

If you can't tell from the crappy photo, that's raspberries, a spoonful of creme frache and toasted hazelnuts. The only way this could be better is if I had some blueberries to throw in the mix. Yum.

And yesterday, I went rummage sale-ing with a couple of friends and I bought 4 cookbooks for $1 each:

My favorite has to be "Wyoming Cookin" because it's full of recipes with names like "Cowpunchers Rice and Beef" and "Son of a Gun Stew" (and oddly enough - a large percentage of the recipes call for peanut butter. ?) There are poorly drawn sketches of cowboy boots and tepees on every page. Pretty awesome.

My second favorite cookbook from the bunch is "RECIPES from the WOMEN of First Baptist Church Des Moines, Iowa" because 1) it has at least 5 different recipes for Oatmeal Cookies, each exactly the same except submitted by a different parishioner and 2) I found this recipe for "Old Scripture Cake":

I tried whipping up a batch, but I was fresh out of Leviticus 2:13, so foolishly I tried adding extra Judges 5:25 instead. The bowl immediately burst into flames, then Satan appeared right before my eyes and ate all the uncooked batter right out of the bowl. Sick!

I guess a dash of Revelations would have ended up causing too much indigestion in the end.
