After getting out and about last week I now seem to be trapped inside a vortex of never ending paperwork while I try to catch up with all those things I put aside until I had a few weeks free from teaching during August. Those few free weeks are rapidly disappearing under reports, planning and newsletters but I did manage a blissful day off baking yesterday.
There were cherry bakewells (not a bit like Mr. Kiplings) which I've wanted to make ever since I spotted them In Lily Vanilli's book Sweet Tooth.
Raspberry and white chocolate macarons... with their secret splodge of raspberry coulis. (recipe from The Pink Whisk)
And my trusty dark chocolate brownies with chunks of white chocolate and walnuts. All this for my book club supper last night. There wasn't much talk of books but we did eat a lot!
Now if you'll excuse me I need to go to the gym... I've got about 7000 calories to burn off.
