It was beautiful and sunny today but I have to admit I never set foot outside.

Exercise:

I did none today after being frustrated yesterday when my exercise disappeared:(. Maybe I’ll make up for it tomorrow.

Knitting:

My sweater is going well. I split for front and back and finished the back. I now need a quiet time to work the front as it has a lot of different shaping happen at the same time. Maybe I’ll get brave and tackle it tomorrow. I think I’m also stuck because I’m not sure how I’m going to do the sleeves as I have no DPN sets with me.

Movies:

I watched Coffee Shop with my mom this morning and really enjoyed it. It ended happily so I was happy.

I have to admit most of the day was spent watching the British Baking Show. I am now on season 3. I have to admit I was shocked by the winner of season 2.

I just saw British Baking Show: The Beginning so I am curious about whether I should have started with that one.

Baking:

After watching so much of the Baking Show, I of course, had to bake. This can be great but also tough at my parent’s place. It’s great because I can use normal ingredients and not contaminate my kitchen, but it can also be a nightmare as they don’t bake, so they don’t have a lot of ingredients. Today I made brownies from this Recipe.

I learned an awesome dessert from a colleague so I took the brownies, put some cherry pie filling and whipping cream on top and called them Black Forest brownies. My parents both ate them and enjoyed them.

Well that’s it for me, and yes I’m going back to The British Baking Show🤪🤪🤪

Have fun!

  1. can you go to a craft store and get the things you need to knit your sweater? I’d think they’d have a JoAnn Fabric, Walmart or Michaels somewhere in driving distance. I’m sure your parents enjoyed your baked goods if they don’t bake. I’m glad to hear it turned out well for you since you were struggling so much before you left

  2. Oh that’s funny! I think we started watching a few years ago. But the first one we watched, my husband demanded to bake a cake! We got the ingredients for a fat-free sponge and he got to work – but unfortunately, I only realised he didn’t know what folding in the flour meant until he was busily bashing all the air of out the mix! We did cook it, it was indeed a pancake – but fortunately we had a lot of ingredients left so made another quite nice one!

  3. LOVE LOVE LOVE The Great British Baking Show. It’s my current TV addiction. I want to bake absolutely everything on there, and always have the urge to bake when watching it too . The brownies you made sound so yummy.
