The New 'To Do'

So now that I scratched the album off my list, here are the random things I'm currently working on this weekend:

Project 1: At the end of March I'm going to make a wedding cake for my co-worker Heather's parent's anniversary (which I'm excited to 'try' again), so I've decided that I want to serve the slices with little white chocolate hearts (2 to a plate, I need to make 300-400, they are very small). I bought the mold last weekend, and my goal is to make them all soon. The lady at the store assured me they have a shelf life of up to 2 years, so I work on a tray at a time (usually when I'm talking on the phone). I have a few more bags to go. This is one of those details few other people will notice, but...I do (and have at other weddings and can remember when there is a little spray of mousse, or a sugared design on the plate) for the one other person at the vow renewal that would notice, this is for them. Anyway, just a random project-I love to multitask, so this activity feeds that 'need.'

Project 2: thing on my 101 list (disclaimer this is NOT a "Bucket List"....the 101 thing on the list is to make another list of 101-this is just a list that prevents me from always saying I'm going to do something, and makes me actually DO it, and I've been working on it for years) is to cook 50 new entrees (I blame it on a lack of tracking as to why, despite the number of years I've had the list, I haven't done this yet, but it's probably more a lack of cooking). I pulled three recipes I'm GOING to try this week (which will bring me to a grand total of 27 since I started tracking). I tried out one I saw on the back of a bread yeast package (anything that involves bread's main ingrediant has to be good) was for a was fine, but it wasn't great.....I'll share any recipes I find that are 'great.' Any suggestions or recipes for favorite meals you have is greatly appreciated, I usually 'miss' on the recipes I choose. I took a picture, because pictures are just more fun on a blog, and I'm going through a dry spell!
Projects I should be working on:
Project 1-101: Cleaning my house!

Can't wait to see the picture of the anniversary cake. I love that you love details. I am not a detailed person but really appreciate that trait in others. Thanks for sharing the details. You inspire me!!
