Halloween Coconut Ice?

I've been cooking a lot, still. Tons of muffins- I made over fifty muffins for a little trip to the Run for your Lives 5k recently. I made whole grain pumpkin and morning glory muffins, and they were pretty much destroyed. The morning glory ones almost didn't make it to the next morning, actually.

I didn't take any pictures of them, because I am both an idiot and still don't have a camera.

Then I decided I wanted to retry the failed coconut ice I made so long ago. I got a different recipe, and mmmm, I think Prehistoric Bird will agree when I say that it's good. It's terrible for you, no doubt. But it melts in your mouth, and it just tastes like delicious sugary coconut.

I'll take pictures of it later. But for now, just know: I am still slowly trying to cook through England.

Bad things come in more than threes, these days.

My laptop's hard drive completely crashed last week. As a computer person, you might assume that I had the foresight to back up all of my important files, but you would be slightly... incorrect in that assumption. I'm hoping some of my things can be recovered, but for now, everything is gone. That means all of the pictures I had taken in the past months are gone.

I'm going to start working on replacing them with new pictures but between having mono and a huge homework load for my graduate class (not to mention all the other things going on in my life!), it certainly won't be getting done this week. I promise eventually things will start updating again!

Sick Birds don't Blog...

Sorry for the silence again, but I've been very busy. Between starting a new job and then catching mono, I've hardly had the energy to function, let alone be witty enough to write blog posts. I have plenty of posts half written, and plenty of pictures taken (jumbo muffins! You've no idea how much that excites me.), but right now I just don't have the energy to write anything lengthy. In fact, I'm about to go crawl back in bed and take a nap... and yes, I know it's only 10 in the morning.
