y’all, i got it back!
i’ve been sweating my big butt off in my little tiny kitchen for the past couple of weeks.
i think a lot of it has to do with what we talked about last week, me eating everything in sight. i’ve been cooking dinner up at night, i started making my lunch for work, and the scones keep on coming!
last week i went to the only place where single girls with no roommates go for groceries, costco! makes total sense right? i need 2 lbs of blueberries, and 12 peaches, 2 loaves of bread, and 14 lbs on salmon. because i’m going to eat that all in 1 or 2 weeks right? the way my mind works sometimes even i wonder about.
well i did really buy 2 lbs of blueberry so i went on a blueberry baking spree. we’re talking blueberry pancakes, blueberry muffins, and duh blueberry scones x2! remember how last time i was telling you about how my scones were a little cakey and a little too sweet. welp, these scones were perfection. they were a little crunchier on the outside and the perfect amount of sugar. i ate one the night i made them, one of them on the way to visit my girlfriend in richmond, and well, then another one when i got to richmond. whoops!
i don’t know if i love this marathon training or i hate it. i’m spending a lot on groceries but i get to eat everything in sight!
my favorite critic, baked spaghetti boy, comes back in 2 weeks!!! thank goodness he eats everything in sight too and will eat all of my baking spree creations. well not scones, apparently he hates scones. let’s see if we can change that!
