...I would like to implement into this blog of mine "Flash through Friday"...which is essentially a photo/fact dump from the week coming to a close.
I will begin tonight! Why not?
A fun little fact about me: I can NOT turn down a free book. Even if I already have a copy of it. My mom did not desire to keep all of the books pictured above so she passed them on to me. She had them in a bag all set and ready for me saying "I know you'll take them". (hah! I officially need another book shelf ;) Looks like I am stocked for my summer reading this year.
After a long and exhausting day at work on Thursday I got home and immediately changed into some comfy clothes. Comfort food was made for dinner which was followed by some snuggle time with Bailey. Doesn't he look thrilled? He really is very passive with me. He primarily wants attention. That keeps him happy.
The chef training me this week has passed on a few tips and tricks she's learned over the years. This has been inspiring...so inspiring that even though the last thing I wanted to was stand in my kitchen at home after being on the clock in a kitchen all day...I still managed to whip up some fresh baked goods.
I do not have a recipe for the Lemon Bunt Cake above...because I just kind of threw all the ingredients together. Figures that it turned out beautifully and I didn't think to write down the amounts as I went... :\
It is officially the best cake I have ever made when it comes to texture and sweetness. All sorts of "light and fluffy" with just the right amount of lemon flavor.
In all seriousness...I'm being completely serious about wanting to attempt building one. It would be a dream come true to haul something like this up north and use it during my camping trips.
I can just picture it...laying in this little nook...all wrapped up in a thick, heavy comforter with several pillows surrounding me...waking up to the smell of the fire from the night before that is lingering in the morning mist...
Good night, sleep tight...and have a great weekend, everyone!
