picture contest winners! and dough.

Thursday, May 21, 2009

Okay, I know I've vented about dough before, but seriously--how can the simple combo of yeast, water, flour, oil, and sugar be so dratted HARD? Last week I made dough that turned out rather rock-like after measuring everything perfectly and making sure that the place I put the dough to rise was nice and warm (but not too warm) and then this morning, more than half-asleep, I make at batch by chucking things in and what have I produced? Gorgeous, perfectly risen dough. It looks so pretty I want to take a picture. (Seriously. The only reason I'm not is because I don't think I need to go down the road of taking *pictures* of stuff I make. I figure babbling about it is enough)

Maybe the trick is to not worry. Or to be half asleep. Or maybe it's just luck. Either way, this week I'll be making pizza crust that won't resemble petrified wood. Whoo!!!

I also have the winning photos from the Something, Maybe photo contest I ran last week:

This is Melanie's photo, and she tagged it "Because everyone needs a little comfort" which I loved!

This is Alex's photo, and it shows her cat all curled up with Something, Maybe!

This is Jillian's photo, and she's got Something,Maybe hanging out on a swing, which is something I can totally see Hannah doing (with a certain boy, of course!)

This is Joanna's photo, and she says her dog (who I think is totally adorable!) gives it two paws up!

Yhis is Denise's photo, and I love that she took a picture of the book while looking *just like* the cover--very impressive!

And don't forget *today* is the last day to enter the Along For The Ride ARC contest and if you're interested in joining the Elizabeth Scott Fans Facebook Group I'd obviously love it (and adore you for it!) *plus* if you join by this Friday, the 22nd, and leave a comment on a certain discussion topic (involving free books!) you've might win a little something...
