Baking and me!
I told myself I was going to slow down on my baking. I have been baking too much recently.
When my daughter met with her old school mates, I baked for her to bring. When a group of us mothers met for a chit chat, I baked. When Little D's classs had their End of term party, I baked. Every time there was a gathering, I was baking! Even when I was feeling bored, I baked. I was baking practically every other day this past fortnight!
I shared recipes with friends, and when the feedback they gave was that my recipes worked well, it made me want to bake even more. When I gave home-made cookies and cakes to friends who dont bake, and they come back to say that they enjoyed it, it sure made my day, and I wanted to take out my apron and bake again for them on the spot. This afternoon, I made more cookies.
At the rate I am going, I may be ready for a second career, an industrial size oven ... and a bigger pair of jeans!
