So, okay. I was totally going to make traditional bread. The kind that it takes a whole day to make. And it was going to be awesome. I heated up water, dissolved honey in it, and waited what I thought was a wholly appropriate amount of time, and then sprinkled in the yeast and waited for it to do its "Nom nom". No dice. It was all: "AUGH TOO HOT WE DIE NOW." (yes, yeast talks. you're just jealous.)

So then I go out to purchase a thermometer, get some quarters for laundry, and try again. And the yeast was all "OM NOM NOM this is yummy hunny!" and so I poured in the flour and salt and oil things and they were like, "Hmm... nice try, but that is way too much water and you really should have assessed your flour situation beforehand, because now you're out. Three cups does not a loaf make."

So I was like, "FAUFDOSLKGHLADSFJ." And tossed the mo-fo out, went to purchase a five-pound bag of flour and came back home. My arm was pretty beefy by the end of the walk, by the way.

So I sit down and look at this pretty cinnamon-y coffeecake recipe that looks a lot like the sort that David and I devour whenever we go to Hobee's. And I have everything!

EXCEPT SOUR CREAM ASLFJAS;LKDGKHALSKDJMS;ZLDJCZS!!

So forget that. It would have been magic. But no. It is not to be. Weep for me. Instead, I am rocking the peanut butter bread, as I know it to be tasty and simple. Especially since it is just like, "Jam me up! I can be a full meal!"

(yes, all food talks to me. yes, i am awesome and would make a very interesting food show host.)

STEALTH EDIT So the bread carbonized a bit too much, but it's still totally edible, and I have taught myself that the reason I hate most oatmeal cookies is because they have those icky raisins in them instead of chocolate chips, which clearly work so much better.

Oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are totally the most awesome cookies ever. Especially when they have spices in them. Didn't I give you a recipe for oatmeal chocolate chip?

Probably? I just used the recipe from my oatmeal container. Yeah.
