...And we're off! The new semester is off and running. Four days down and quite a few left to go.
Sometimes it's the little things that get you through these crazy exhausting days and the sleepy-eyed mornings. We got cupcakes to cover 2 of the days, a little treat to look forward to after a day of stumbling through classes (as if I hadn't taught in weeks...oh wait). They kind of made my day. Twice.
This was my pre-semester breakdown food. Classic beer bread...moist, buttery, and so irresistible. It took literally 3 minutes to make prior to oven time. It's dangerously quick to make. So, after a rough one, this may be the way to go.
