Underoos and the like

I see I touched a happy collective memory nerve with my last post! I had Wonder Woman Underoos, too. Oh how I loved them! About 7 years ago I got it in my head that I needed grown up sized ones. I googled around and found nothing. So I actually emailed the company that makes Underoos and asked them if they were going to make adult sizes. Rather to my surprise I got a personal email back saying that yes, they were planning to make adult sizes in the near future. I checked for about 6 months and then forgot...until yesterday, when someone posted a link to these beauties. The total rad-ness nearly blinded me, and I'm glad it had the same effect on some of you!

I've also been swept off of my feet by bread. Bread?! Yeah, I know. I'm not one of those "eat my weight in bread" types...bread serves a purpose from time to time, but most days I don't eat any at all (and I bake a significant amount of the bread we eat in this house, too!). Anyway, someone recently shared a no-knead bread recipe with me and I just had to try it. Cause even though I let the kitchen-aid do most of my kneading I am apparently so lazy that even that small effort (turning on the machine??) was more than I really wanted to put in. So, I was intrigued, but slightly skeptical. I mean, if you could make good bread without kneading don't you think everyone would be doing it?

So, the night before last I mixed up the dough before bedtime (it sits at least 12 hours) figuring that at worst I'd have wasted 3 cups of flour. I baked it yesterday afternoon, and when we ate the bread last night I wasn't sure which I loved more: the bread, or me (for baking such amazing, delicious bread). I'm about to put a loaf in the oven right now, and will be back later with p0rn pictures.
