Soda Bread

I came across THIS
recipe via apartment therapy
it came together so easy! I used a 9 inch cake pan and parchment paper. I kinda had a bunch of little projects going while I was making it , so it did not have all of my attention. I used 4 teaspoons of sugar in the dough and topped it off with dutch poppy seeds and a little sea salt. I could not believe how beautiful it came out! This bread is ridiculously tasty and rich.
because of the buttermilk, this bread can float with out any butter or jam , but of course I put some on anyways

a interesting article on space HERE . Space like apartment space, and value, and how we consume to much, and how its making us unhappy. I think about this a lot, as I comb through everything I own quite often to make room and living space. We live in a house with 580 square feet of living space. Since moving in w DB we have cleaned out one apartment , two storage units, and purged and purged belongings. It feels so good to have less things, I almost wonder sometimes if I am addicted to getting rid of stuff. On a kinda related note

you will never fucking guess where this dress is from

new stuff

Somehow we have obtained lots of new things these past two weeks
I got a Juki , 18 years old and boy is she a beauty. Tough as nails and a little scary.
A new washer and dryer! It plays music when each cycle is done (adding a little spice to grown up life)
I got glasses for reading and seeing up close (holy shit that means I'm old)
