Fiat Lux

I need a little sunshine!

I covet: J. Crew's Navy wool schoolboy blazer. Navy, metal buttons, tailored.... 'nuff said.

I am craving: Lemon bread! I have this great recipe I have been making for years. I have the recipe memorized and I don't remember exactly how I got the recipe.

Lemon bread
1 ½ cup flour (all purpose)
1 cup sugar 1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp Salt 2 eggs
½ cup milk
½ cup vegetable Oil
grated peel of 1 lemon plus juice

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In another bowl, beat eggs, milk, oil, and lemon peel until blended. Mix liquids into flour mixture until smooth. Pour batter into loaf pan (spray with pam and line with parchment paper). Bake in a 350 degree oven until a toothpick (or cake tester) inserted into the center comes out clean (40-45 minutes).

This is a perfect way to lift your spirits, easy and comforting. Its great with raspberry jam and a cup of tea.

I am annoyed about: Inconsiderate people! Do not drive in the far right lane if you are not going to let cars merge onto the freeway! I'm sorry you're annoyed that you got stuck going 15 mph but if you don't let people merge into traffic, they have nowhere to go!
Is it Friday yet?
