I haven’t baked anything in the last five days. Every time I step into the kitchen to bake something I come out thinking about the work involved. But yesterday, when my Sister-in-law asked me to bake two brownies for her I spend my whole night thinking about my next day adventure of whipping something new (share recipe soon).
Last week of every vacation is kept for helping my son in starting and finishing his holiday homework. Luckily he managed to complete that in my time. Now, waiting for his school to open, so that, I can get back to a schedule. His holidays always make me lazy. He too will concentrate on better thing of life other than electronic gazettes.
In continuation of my two earlier posts today also, I am sharing one more story of this summer vacation. My nephews and my sister visited my house to spend a weekend with us. I always look forward for their visit because unlike all here, they love and enjoy my bakes. I made brownie for them though they love all kinds of cakes made by me but chocolate brownie is always an ultimate pleasure. I was not wrong in my selection of brownie, as next day when I asked that which cake they would prefer. They all unanimously answered, “The same brownie”. Though I hate to make the same thing again but agreed on the demand of children and to your amazement I made the same brownie on the third day too.
