Motherly suggestion

My mom thinks "Ris To the Rescue!" would be a great name for a children's action series. The sigh.

What do you do with heavy whipping cream? I mean, other than making whipped cream out of it. I got some for the wild rice pudding, and it was a good thing, but it was only 1/3 c., and that leaves significant cream in the carton. I could just offer whipped cream on the apple crisp I'm making on the occasion of matastas's visit (speak now if you hate apples, boyo). I don't know, though. It seems like there ought to be something I often don't make because I don't have the cream for it but could make now, but I don't know what that would be.

I will also be making apple bread in mass quantities soon, with hazelnuts or walnuts or pecans or no nuts at all. If you're local and want some, speak up with your nutty preference. I'll be making bunches, so it's just a matter of whether you get any or not, not a matter of whether I make more. It freezes well.

I think now is time to poke dlandon and yhlee's kind suggestions on the beginning of Fortress of Thorns -- the sort of things that can make a difference with one or two lines here or there. All subtle-like. And then all the other things on my list will have to wait while I finish Orvokki telling Edward the story of the original Sampo. Since she started in the last book, it's about time she finishes, I think.

Since I am no longer cramping like a beast, I will not be growling quite so much at the world at large. As representatives of the world at large, you may breathe a collective sigh of relief.
