Baking on a Cool and Damp Day
I am not often inspired to do much on a cool and damp day. I am still cutting up my porch roof that the Winter snow load tore off making firewood out of it. It may heat me for a couple of weeks this Fall. I am nearly done but today I put off that effort do to the weather. I can hear some thunder now so I guess it will rain.
Over looking my computer is one of my cats. She is the one that seem most closely bonded to me. When she isn't on her favourite shelf beside me, she can be found curled up in the crook of my arm as I watch TV or try to read. At night she is the one to first climb up on me in order to sleep on top. I guess she knows it is not a good day to go outside.
Today, I get inspired to do a little baking. I do not do much of that these days. What is the point in a household of one.
These are some tea biscuit with raisin in them. The jar is my window sill ice tea I like to have available when I do not feel like coffee.
These are plain tea biscuits. It took me a while to realize that in the Southern US they just call these biscuits as in "gravy and biscuits". In the UK biscuits are what we call cookies. I made some oat meal cookies a couple of days ago as a little comfort food for me.
Here is one of the loafs of bread I baked earlier.
This is a Scottish Scone A wedge of it with butter is lovely warm, with a cup of tea.
There is lots to nibble on tonight as I listen to the baseball game, Toronto Blue Jays vs the Chicago White Socks.
