Last Post

This blog started as a one year experiment.  The first post was made on August 25, 2009.  Today is September 6, 2010.  It is therefore time to close this blog.

It wasn't a bad experiment.  This is the blog's 60th post.  I started the blog posting twice a week, and then ended it posting about once every two weeks.  It may have gotten a little neglected over the course of the year, but the blog never languished or died.

It also developed a regular readership, which surprised me.  I am indebted to those readers and their comments: they encouraged me to keep this blog going, even as I was losing interest.  They have also encouraged me to keep blogging.  And so, even though I am closing the 2 by 15 blog, I am starting up a new one: Teashell Times (  

Teashell Times is a blank page at the moment, but I plan to start updating it within the next couple of weeks.  I will send out an e-mail to my readers once I start posting.

I would like to thank all my readers for following me this past year, and I hope to see you again at my new blog!

Finally, a few odds and ends to close out the blog:

Thai noodles with chicken and peanut sauce:

It's one of the prettiest things I've made all year, I think.

And my ruined attempt to make steamed cornmeal buns:

They were supposed to come out round and puffy, like rolls.  Instead, they were flat and lumpy.  They tasted fine, though.  I *will* try these again.  It seems that I just have no luck with pastries--my latkes earlier this year turned out just as poorly.

The penny remains.
