Shortbread and Short Hair?

  So, lately I keep making shortbread. Lots and lots of shortbread. I don't particularly LIKE shortbread, but it is one of the few recipes that I have that only requires three ingredients. I think secretly McKay's heart sinks when I proudly announce to him, "I made shortbread!". Anyone know any other few-ingredient easy recipes that I can do to shake things up a bit more?

  After a month of attempts to make some kind of shape or style, I have decided I despise my hair. I didn't bring my straightener, as everyone warned me how humid it is here, and so all I brought was my blow drier (which usually just succeeds in making my hair frizzy. Sorry, frizzy-er) and some mousse. Gosh, I'm so sick of my hair. So, anyway, I was thinking about how I hardly ever "style" my hair anyway, and how tired I am of my hair, which seems to always be stuck at the same boring length, and I have begun daydreaming of something easy and radically different. I want shag hair. Think Meg Ryan hair. Oooh, or does anyone know how to do the Marilyn Monroe short curl look? I think that would be awesome. Best of all, anyone know of any websites where I can try different hair styles on a picture of my face?


  1. Hey Juje! My favorite French bread recipe is only four ingredients (counting water):

    3 cups warm water
    1 1/2 Tbsp. yeast
    1 1/2 Tbsp. salt
    6 1/2 cups flour (any kinds, mixed together for variety)

    Mix, let rise, punch down, let rise again, punch down and divide into 3 equal loaves of whatever shape you like, let rise, dust top with flour, slash top with decorative slash marks, cook at 450 for 35 minutes, break out the jam and butter.

    Love, Dad

  2. My roommate makes these cookies that are super tasty and only 3 ingredients! Chocolate cake mix, 2 eggs, and a half cup of either butter or oil. Then just bake it like normal, 350 and all. It's good with chocolate chips too, if you don't mind another ingredient. :) Good luck cookin'!
