ME tagged?

First, I would like to Apologize to Bev for taking so long for this post, and I would really like to thank her for tagging me.

And now.. the dreaded RULES (as the echo of RULES... RULES.. RULES.. goes on)

1. Link to your tagger and post these rules.
2. Share 5 facts about yourself
3. Tag 5 people at the end of your post and list their names (linking to them).
4. Let them know they’ve been tagged by leaving a comment at their Blogs.

Please.. a drum roll for the 5 interesting things about myself (well sort of interesting)

1.- Both my names Euridice and Ifigenia come from the Greek mythology, and they are both tragedies.. I guess my parents had a sense for the dramatic, they are both very interesting stories but my favourite one is Euridice's story. Hopefully one day I'll find my Orpheus who will be ready to go get me back from the Underworld.

2.- I am obsessed with dessert, I MUST eat something sweet after my main meal otherwise I just feel like there is something missing and I don't feel satisfied. Right now.. I need some cake with some ice cream.. mmm spongecake with ice cream yuuum.

3.- My favourite kind of wine is Riesling is just refreshing and fruity .. I love it, and just last week I got my first recipe to cook with Riesling so stay tuned for Chicken cooked in Riesling.

4.- I am a really slow reader, specially with Fiction books because I don't want them to be over, I feel that once I read the last page of the book I'll loose the story and will be out of my mind, however if I read it really slowly I can think about different endings and keep the world of the book in my head. I know it sounds really weird, but I love keeping all of the world of fiction close to me.

5.- I collect and LOVE (and I mean LOVE) bags and boxes, just ask Miss Martha... I have so many bags, but seriously.. I don't think you can ever have enough bags.. I loves them loves them.. LOVES them. Functional ART!

And now for the people that I've chose to TAG!! mwahahahaha!! (I am changing the rules for myself cause they are meant to be bent.. I am only tagging 3 people)

1) Miss Martha aka Carrie
2) Miss Carolyn
3) Kristin who I just meet but is a really nice gal

phat lewt

Since I saw Bev's post about Naan bread and little Ollie nibbling at that delicious bread... I've been dying to make some, of course the challenge of making this bread is I don't own a tandoor oven, but oh well... I wanted to nibble on some of that delicious bread myself.

The recipe was easy and I love using yogurt instead of milk, the dough was a BEAUTY to work with, seriously... it is a pleasure to work with.. it is sooo smooth and easy to manage.. I loved it! ... and...

I loved the bread too.. doesn't it look pretty? trust me, it also tasted yuuummy!!! yay for Naan, thanks sooo much Bev!!

Last Sunday I went out with my dearest Miss Martha and we went on a fabric buying expedition.. and this is the phat lewt that I got

pretty eh?? 4 of those fabrics are destined for bags, and I am unsure about what to to do with the other still, perhaps more bags, perhaps more stuffed monsters, we will see what my imagination cooks up, but I am sooo happy with my fabric.. ^_^

what I am not so happy about right now is this killer headache that I've had since yesterday and I don't know what to do with it.. it is sooo bad.. anyone knows about a recipe to get rid of this kind of headache? *dies*

A snow storm and some matcha mini cakes

On Friday, I was supposed to go out with Miss Carolyn to knitnite... we were supposed to have have supper at her place (I would provide the dessert) and then go...

I had my knitting ready!

I had dessert ready!

Matcha and chocolate mini cakes for which you can find the recipe here

but the weather had completely different plans for us.... there was a snow storm so our plans were shattered, hopefully when we meet this coming week there won't be a snow storm!
On the plus side the Matcha cakes are reeeeally good, seriously is super fun to cook with matcha tea ^_^ ... who wants to come over for some tea and mini cakes??!!!
