I was joking with DD last night that I'm going to have to get a calendar for all our social engagements we are getting now. LOL. In addition to our coffee at the "property" neighbors house tomorrow, we also have now been invited to sit at the table of a charity dinner that DH's (rich) friend has a table at in early March. Some annual charity for a wildlife foundation or something like that. Aren't we just the social butterflies now? LOL
I'm making a loaf of banana bread, this afternoon, to take over to coffee tomorrow. Last night I made myself a cheesecake. It's been a long time since I made one of those. Hmmm...I don't remember the springform pan leaking before, so my oven started smoking and a little flame as it dripped on the heating element. EEEK! I guess you are supposed to put foil or something underneath, but the directions didn't say that. The directions for this recipe called to bake for 30 minutes and then turn oven off and let sit inside there for an hour. Fortunately the smoking/flames started right at the time I was turning it off, so I took it out for a couple minutes to get the little bit of smoke cleared and stuck it back in (figured what did I have to lose at that point) for the remaining hour and it turned out fine.
I cleaned up the bottom of the oven today, before I turned it on to make banana bread. Of course I apparently didn't get it all off and it was smoking a bit. So, I had to turn it off, let it cool down, wipe and wipe some more, but now my banana bread is baking nicely (I hope!).
