Make buttons for the right column for the Vincent Connare interview, typebase, halfbaked-ideas.com and maybe Mana-16.

Should I redesign my site as well? The links on the right are getting kinda unwieldy.

Thanks to the long weekend, I finally made the cranberry and pistachio biscotti! I also made a batch of corny parmesan biscotti, the savoury ones that Jimmy’s been asking for. These are the successful ones. On the down side, I threw away four logs of unsliced almond biscotti cos they are too hard to slice and I have no clue what to do with them.

The weekend before the last, I also made a very successful batch of Nigella Lawson’s brownies. Mifi made them first and it was such a hit, she passed the recipe to me.

We also watched 3.5 dvds, but I better post that to the right thread before I kick my own ass.

He he. Will make tiramisu for our next bbq. Too bad the office fridge is too small. Hopefully we have time for a bbq before we get too busy again. :D
