Pent up domesticity

There was a flurry of pent-up domestic activity this weekend--apart from laundry. There was soapmaking (a lovely working soap, coffee-peppermint, inspired by Deanna), vegan chocolate stout cake spiked with prunes (from this recipe and this), mushroom mole tacos topped with cilantro-lime slaw, a new divided shelf in the cabinets to deal with the too-many spices problem (thanks to Mr. Nake-id, we'll no longer have this conversation, "Honey, where's the star anise?") and yarn, plied yarn (thanks to the spinning group at Cheryl's!).

Sigh. If only my institutions were celebrating Dr. King's holiday.

Making soap was SO fun! I can't wait to see how it turns out. ANYtime you want to do it again, I'm at your service. =)
