gluten-free baking, movies

so today i experimented with making banana bread without wheat. the recipe called for brown rice flour, agave, quinoa flour and arrowroot. after hunting down those ingredients at wheatville's co-op member appreciation day, i made the bread. the result: i loved the texture, it was crumbly and soft like bread should be, but i messed up.. since i used bananas that weren't ripe. i know i know, should've used old soggy bananas.. where are brown bananas when you need em?

anyways, i think i'll experiment some more. that was promising.

i saw "there will be blood" movie at the drafthouse. found it boring. there were some awesome psychologically crazy moments, but a lot of it was boring. that said: if you're into drama, "serious" art and such.. you will like this movie. andy did.
i also saw "27 dresses" with my roommate. and i enjoyed it. it wasn't great, but it was enjoyable, i'll watch it over "there will be blood" anyday.
i know this means i lose intellectual snob points. that's ok.

tonight i'm planning to go to kaci's birthday party!

I love There Will Be Blood so much I don't even have the words for it. Every second of it. I had to pee for the last hour and a half, but I couldn't peel my eyes off the screen.

Boo! I was going to see if you wanted to see "27 dresses" with me, but now you've already seen it. :(

I'm all about some high art, but from the trailers, I'd rather see 27 dresses over there'll be blood anyday. Weird, huh?

Of course, I'd rather see Cloverfield before either of them.

That's almost exactly like being in the 1950's and saying you'd rather go see Godzilla than Vertigo, which is a fine enough opinion, but that's what it's like.

The trailer didn't sell me. What can I say?

There in the bottom of my freezer! I love banana bread and I probably bake banana bread about once every other week (when I'm not in China of course). After bananas get ripe, I peel them and put them in freezer bags. It works really well. And you don't have to worry about timing.
