WCBlogging and a recipe!

No, the recipe is not for CAT! LOL Though the cats steal the end result of the recipe posted below. My cats LOVE bread!

Our host this weekend is House of Mostly Black Cats! I will be unable to post a picture this weekend at the rate things are going. I went to go install my camera software only to find that my cd rom is broken. *sighs* oh the joys of toddler hood! And I even had a neat picture of Pause hiding in the grass.. and was going to have a caption to the effect of, "Shhhhh. I am hiding!" The biggest reason I cannot do anything about the CD Rom currently is that I am 1. waiting on a batch of dinner rolls to do its thing so I can bake it in about 1.5 hours and 2. Debating on where to get a new cd rom from. either office max or a friend.

And even though I have this recipe posted below once again I cannot post a picture because my computer can't talk to the camera with out that software! So, do enjoy the recipe and I am going to make a bee-line to the friends house for a cd rom and a movie and will hopefully be up and running the way I should be later today!

Hi Heather, you're in Texas, too. I'm in Houston here, enjoying this heat.
You can get photos out of the camera with a lot of different software other than that which came with the camera. I use either the cable that came with the camera to hook directly to the computer or a Lexar Media Readers (for the card). There is a freeware program called IView that grabs the photos. I like it cause it takes up less space on the computer and it's easy to use.

Anyway, just a thought. Can't wait to see your pictures now that I have found your blog.
