Surprises, Cheesy Bread and the Book of Faces

Tomorrow, the fam and I are hitting the road in order to surprise my dad for an early Father's Day thing. Even though my mom is willing to make the trip north, my dad's not big on the city and so we haven't seen him since Christmas. It's been too long. My dad is awesome. The best. He's a sappy, gushy kind of guy, and has mad skills.

Don't believe me?

Well my daddy built this here car. From scratch. And it runs. And it's won awards — and it's not even done yet.

vroom vroom. my baby girl was only two weeks old in that picture. where does the time go?

Anyway, so I won't have my normal gear at my disposal for the rest of the week. I'll have the camera and an iMac, but no photo editing software. So any posts I make will be with unedited pics and will most likely be short as I will be terribly busy introducing the munchkin to a salt water swimming pool, eating steamed crabs and using my new Planet Wise wet bag for an upcoming review and giveaway.

Fear not though, because I have an awesome Make or Buy on the way:

any idea what the next make or buy will be?

Tonight as I was packing, I realized I had one more loaf's worth of wheat bread dough in the fridge from my last "Artisan Bread" batch. So I rolled it out, made a few slices, filled it with Italian cheeses and spices, braided up the slices and baked it on up. I really should have taken a picture. It was a sight to behold.

But alas.

And of course, I had to sample a slice. Or two. You know, quality assurance. Anyway, now it's wrapped up in foil and ready for our road trip.

Anyhoo, I still have some packing to do, so I'm going to sign off for now. But before I do, two things:

1. If you haven't already, check us out on Facebook. I'm hoping to really create a community there where you tell me what you'd like to see on this site. So "like" us and then start interacting and making friends on the discussions tab.

2. Don't forget about the GIVEAWAY! Winner will be selected at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, June 9, so get your entries in now.

Have an awesome week and I'll talk to ya again real soon. ;)

Make or Buy: Pizza or Calzones

Ridiculous Excitement!
