The adventure begins...

I have been in Alabama almost two weeks now. The room the camp is letting me stay in is very comfortable, but I have no kitchen. I really miss having a kitchen. It is hard to cook a meal for yourself when all you have at your disposal is hot water and a contact grill. I have been told I can use the camp kitchen, but I would have to make sure and clean it well or the camp cook would have my head.

I am still on the hunt for a job. I turned in an application with the local school district yesterday. I applied for two postions. One is for an aide for a special needs student at the local middle school. The other is for a library assistant at a different school. I am really hoping I get the library position. There is also the slight possibility a postiion at the camp will open soon, but more on that later.

My friends have been more than generous to me. They have fed me, driven me and advised me. I am very thankful they are here to help me. I owe them all a great debt. I would never have made it here without them.

I find myself missing the most random things. A friend of mine has planned a get-together for my birthday. I really want to try this new recipe I have recently discovered. It is an inside-out ice cream cake. The problem is I need a 9 inch springform pan to make it. I have a 9 inch springform pan sitting in my closet in Texas because I never thought I would need it yet. I'm sure I can think of something.

Well, that's it for this post. Check back soon for more updates on my new adventure.

and what excatley is a springform pan?

A springform pan is a pan with a lever on the side. When you pop the lever, the side of the pan opens and detaches from the bottom. They are handy for baking cakes, such as cheesecakes, that can't be turned out of the pan. In this case, I need it more as a mold for the ice cream on the outside of the cake to refreeze.
