An analysis of "Sherlock" (and pizza crust)

We're getting excited over here about the new season of the BBC's Sherlock. M.H. and I have long thought that "Moriarty" must be a collection of villains, not just one person (this is alluded to in the first episode). We've been talking for a while about whether the letters in the name represent four people, MO, RI, AR, and TY, and we highly suspect that that too-innocent little Molly is MO. But M.H. just had the brilliant thought that Kitty Riley could be RI, and maybe Moriarty is actually a group of four women. So perfect, right? All of which would make Andrew Scott's character…actually an actor hired to portray Moriarty! Remember in the last episode? "That's what you do when you sell a big lie; you wrap it up in the truth to make it more palatable."

If you don't have chills right now, go watch all six episodes on Netflix immediately and get up to speed so you can appreciate my husband's genius.

Speaking of things that are awesome because I say so, that's why: With potato starch, white rice flour, and almond flour, I can make a tasty, cracker-thin, crispy pizza crust—which happens to be the best kind of pizza crust. I'm still playing around with the ingredients—and I want to see what happens when I add yeast to the mix—but I'm pretty confident I can make up a healthy pizza crust that's actually better than the wheat-based crust I used to make. Big talk, right? :)

Sadly, I don't think all this pizza experimentation is contributing to my well-being. I normally do eat white rice (the least-offensive grain I know of) and potatoes occasionally, but I don't want to have them every day. Also, the cheese I've been putting on my pizza experiments is upsetting my stomach. And I'm just now getting over the throat-centered crud caused by accidentally eating gluten. Bleah!
