June is a wonderful month don’t you think? It finally feels a bit more spring like. As Canadians we definitely crave the few months of summer weather. And of course, the weather network lied again (they said it was supposed to be thunderstorms) but it’s a clear, warm, and sunny day. Very nice.
Today we thought of what we wanted to bake. A pie was what we originally had in mind. Strawberry or blueberry because that’s what’s in season but of course plans changed last minute and here we are. We did come up with a really good idea of what we want to bake though…Laura has a obsession with anything banana and peanut butter so that will definitely be involved.
I went over to Laura’s house this morning as I usually do to start our baking. Wednesday has become our bake/blog day. Along with baking and blogging we have also committed to running/walking (depending on how sore our legs are!) Today was definitely a walk day! We had our first soccer game Monday night and surprising our legs were still feeling it! This summer is a new one for us. We have really tried to commit to some new goals. I am not much of a goal maker but Laura definitely is (lists and lists of yearly goals, crazy girl). But this summer is a summer I hope to dabble more with running. It is sure to be interesting…
We’ve been enjoying our adventures in the kitchen so far. It actually surprised me how much variety there is in baked goods! Baking doesn’t always have to be about desserts either. The idea of baking granola bars has also crossed our minds. Since we will be living together (along with another friend) next year when we return to school the idea of home-baked granola bars sounds good.
Have you even baked granola bars? Any tips?
Until next time,
Denise and Laura
