Can you smell the home baking? Mmmmmm...

I don't have a baking day, do you? I bake just when it's needed. We like to eat our own wheaten bread and particularly just after it has cooled down - it tastes best when the outside crust is still crispy. I used to layer it with butter and whatever else took my fancy but weight-wise I can no longer do that...Flora Lighter than Light it has to be.
I also baked some date scones, made with folks across the pond will call them biscuits...and they are moreish - too tempting really. I freeze these as well and when folk call I take them out and wrap them one at a time and give them 20 seconds in the microwave and they are practically ready to butter....if you don't have a microwave you can take them out of the freezer when the folk arrive and split them in two and put a damp cloth or kitchen roll over them and while you are chatting they'll be de-frosting and ready to eat in no time at all!
I also wanted to show you how I used Waltzingmouse Little Box Labels on my containers...cheapo containers and empty coffee jars. I stamped the labels and wrote the contents unto them and then laminated them to keep them to see them lined up in the cupboard...I have more than this but don't want to bore you. I'm afraid that's your lot for today.......have a good one for those of you in the U.S. and a great day and holiday weekend to those of you in the U.K. If you are in a traffic jam somewhere on the motorway I pity you......but it will be worth it all when you arrive at your destination! Take care.
