I FEEL LIKE I STARTED TO EAT A CUPCAKE AND THEN PUT IT DOWN AND THEN GOT DISTRACTED BY 100,000,000 THINGS AND DID NOT HAVE TIME TO EAT IT AND THIS IS JUST NOT OKAY.
(that’s an analogy to my current situation with this blog if you didn’t guess by now…)
I have been so swamped with finals that I have had no time to bake (which should be considered a CRIME) and no time to do anything but cry about writing papers.
But this Friday at 2:30, I will be all done and will be 100% dedicated to this blog (and sleeping, of course!)
My goal this summer is to start working with bread so I can eventually be able to wake up each week and make a loaf of bread. I want to learn how to work with dough and make pretty decorations on top of pies (like cutting out little apple shapes or doing that ‘criss-cross’ effect that’s usually seen on pies) so I can make pies for Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, mmmmmhmmm. If any of you have any tips/tricks with working with bread please let me know! I’d love to hear. 😀
So I made some oatmeal today with some fresh fruit because if I’m being honest I don’t eat enough fruit. Or veggies for that matter. That’s another thing I’m going to start working on this summer, is eating more fruits and veggies because donuts can’t be the only thing I eat!!! 😉
I also included some pretty photos of flowers that are currently in my house because it’s spring, and it’s finally warm and sunny here in Canada, YAY.
