Project Cyan is finally undergoing a major website redesign! Please bear with me as I get things sorted out and rearranged.  I'm excited to finally have a place to consolidate  my blogs, my costuming, my website design portfolio, and anything else I feel like putting up.  

I imported all my previous blogs from WordPress, and did quite a bit of customizing on the displays on this site, so I have to go back through the older blog entries and fix the pictures so everything looks consistent. I am sure this is going to take some time! But in the end, it's all so worth it, I love this new site and all of the new features. : )

Everytime I think of the word 'mole' I envision the Austion Powers movie Goldmember where Austin is fascinated with Number 3's facial feature and can't help but yell "mole mole MOLE!!!!"  hahahahaha ;)  Anyhow, I dgress. This post is abot mole, the Mexican sauce made from dried pepper, dried fruits, and nuts.  It's complicated, I won't pretend otherwise. But it is SO worth the effort. And, it makes enough that you can freeze some for another time.  

I am so very sad over the untimely loss of one of my Army friends, who lost his life in a horrific car accident yesterday.

I've been watching movies more often lately, mostly thanks to my awesome little Roku device, which makes streaming movies from Amazon Prime and Netflix super convenient.  I'm finally getting to see movies that have been on my watchlist for ages.  Like The Hunger Games (LOVED it).  And The Girl with A Dragon Tattoo.  I tried to watch the original version in Swedish, with English subtitles, but my attention span is shockingly short, and I couldn't focus through the first 15 minutes, and realized that it was hopeless.

I normally don't take shortcuts, but I picked up a used breadmachine for $5, and thought it would be fun to play with.  I'm not the biggest fan of the weirdly square shape of the loaf, but I haven't managed to pull the loaf out of the machine before the bake cycle to put it in a different pan and bake it in the oven. Because isn't the whole point of the bread machine the convenience?? ;)  

I turned 41 on Sunday.  Which isn't a big deal, I'm not afraid of aging or any of that, nor am I a huge birthday celebrator.  But I think the occassion warrants a little spoiling, usually in the form of a gluttonous meal.  And since I normally eat pretty gluttonous-y anyhow, that means usually heading toward the high carb end of the food spectrum. Or, in this case, pasta. ;)  So, I broke out the pasta machine.  I really wanted to make cheese tortellini, but that has a higher pasta to filling ratio, and I didn't want to go super overboard.  (Famous last words!)  So I opted instead to make raviolis.
