Becoming a housewife?

Over the last several months I've begun to discover a new side of myself.  A very domestic side.  A side that anyone who has ever known me in the real world would assure you they didn't think existed.  Frankly, I'm a bit surprised myself.

In the last month I have painted the lowercase's bathroom so that it resembles a scene from Finding Nemo.  I even went so far as to make a valence for the window!  (For those of you with actual domestic skills, don't laugh!  I don't own a sewing machine so I did it all with my iron and some fusible web tape.)

I was unsatisfied with the selection of curtains available in multiple stores (seriously -- from Target to Bed Bath & Beyond...K-Mart, Wal-Mart, even Lowe's -- NOTHING that would look good in his room!).  So I went to the fabric store and picked a nice fabric, got some more iron-on tape and went to town.  And I've never been so proud of myself!

And then there's the baking.  I can't stop.  Seriously.  Can. Not. Stop.  I've sent beer biscuits to the Mr's office.  I have an apple bread in the oven now for a friend with a new baby.  I just can't stop.

Of course, I still hate to clean or wash dishes or fold laundry.  Some things will never change!

And because I'm all about spreading the love, why not try your hand at my great-grandmother's apple bread.  It's divine!

1 c sugar

1 T butter

1 egg

1 1/2 c flour

1 t baking powder

1 t cinnamon

1/4 t salt

1/4 c milk

2 c diced apples

1/2 c nuts (optional; I *never* use them)

Cream the butter and sugar together.  Add egg and stir until smooth and creamy.  Sift together the flour baking powder, cinnamon and salt, then add to the sugar and egg mixture.  Stir in milk, apples and nuts.  Bake at 350 for 45-50 minutes.
