The baking extravaganza all started with the announcement that my two daughters were coming over early Sunday morning!
They had a to do list to do with the horses, it was going to be one of those wonderfully long days filled with outside chores , good food, laughter and complete exhaustion at the end of the day.
Because I always have a to-do list that needs some TLC every now and then, I decided to seize the day with this extra help and knock a few items off the list.
In order to do this, I needed incentive for my non-volunteering workers! I decided that if I baked a few scrumptious items and offered a good hearty breakfast, I mean how could they possible say no!
There’s something about baking and cooking for others, that steps up my game. Feeding others breaks up the routine of the day to day keep me fed meals, to a meal that I really enjoy. To a meal that is sweet, and savory and creates memories not only in the planning , but also sitting around the table and enjoying!
I started with a fresh veggie and bacon, egg muffins for each person, served with hot tater tots and avocado aioli.
I also baked blueberry, rosemary and lemon scones, served with hot butter.
After our breakfast we were fully armored to go outside , embrace the day and start making the list a lot shorter.
We came in around noon for a slice of the Zucchini pecan bread, with huckleberry honey, and a hot cup of almond coconut black tea with cream.
You see, we are not British, it just tastes so darn good to put cream, or creamer in the black tea. I am now hooked on this wonderful soothing drink. I like it more than coffee some days, sorry coffee you’ve taken a back seat to tea and cream.
