Look out, Panera…

I did quite a bit of baking this weekend, successful and otherwise. I made some Cinnamon cupcakes/muffins which are fine, but boring, so I didn’t take a picture of them to show you. But then I decided I wanted bread bowls for the copious amounts of soup that I have laying around the house.

So I made some.

They looked smaller than I wanted when I made them, but now that I’ve eaten one I think they’re just fine the way they are. And I only burned myself slightly once. The recipe calls for a pre-heated cast iron skillet to have water poured into it after the bread is put in the oven. Now I knew there was going to be steam, that’s the whole point of it (I think it helps to create a crust or something), but I think I didn’t realise how much and neglected to wear an oven mitt on both hands.

Not very clever of me.

Awwww…

Except what they were watching was the bees. The bees are back! I don’t know what everyone’s talking about the bees disappearing because I know where they are. Here! And they watch me.

I know you think I’m imagining it, but I’m not.

And they also throw themselves at my windows, looking for a weak spot. So far they have been unsuccessful.

So far.
