Onje of the wonderful things about blogging is that it enables you to travel to distant places without leaving your home. Your mention of the frost and hot choccy made me laugh -- here in the NE US, we are enduring a monumental heat wave. Days on end of 100 degree heat, accompanied by oppressive humidity. We are fortunate that our airconditions works and that we have electricity -- many are not so lucky.

I plan to lock myself in the airconditioned sewing room this afternoon, with an iced drink, and sew up a storm. All of those wonderful baked goodies will not be far from my mind, however!

Oh please send some cold our way...so jealous!!! All those yummy things hanging around, well I would be in trouble for sure. Sounds like the most perfect time to me!!!

LOVE hot chocolate (especially with mini marshmallows ) and it’s certainly been the right weather for it.

All of your baking looks simply scrumptious. When can I pop over for dinner?

I cant help but notice you haven’t mentioned football ....

Your bakeathon looks awesome! Great day! We had frost here too a couple of mornings last week. So crunchy! Love the photo of the tour on your tv. Looks excellent!

How I wish the coldest weather we got in the winter was a frost on the ground! Your stitching looks great! And so does all the yummy baking! :0)

Anita said...

Yummo - it all looks so delicious!! So is there a recipe for the bacon & potato soup and the savoury muffins??? LOL

HI! Lorraine, What an enjoyable morning for a cook off with your daughter.I have been cooking also as it is school holidays and the grandchildren (7 of them)are in the fridge and cupboards all day cant fill them!!
Love the red work. Look at Rose she is so cute.

AnnieO said...

All that baking looks wonderful! Most of the US has been too hot for baking, but here on the SoCalif coast it is nice and cool so if I were so inclined, I could (I'm not!) Glad you had an enjoyable time with Rhi and have been spending quality time with your needle and thread as well.

Whoa when you hit the baking and cooking you hit it hard LOL. Everything looks yummy and there's nothing better than having goodies stocked away in the freezer. What a great time to spend with your daughter. I'm looking forward to a little coolness on this side of the pond :). Have a great weekend
