I've complained a lot this summer about the cooler than usual temperatures in my Los Angeles neighborhood, so it's just my luck that the four days I plan to bake treats and sweets for my young friend's bake sale, the temperatures would crank up to some of the hottest of the year. Oh well, the ovens might be fired up but it's for a great cause and at least I can finally break out the summer clothes.
My kitchen counter looks like this....
Actually it's what it looked like late Saturday night after I cleaned up from making 6 loaves of banana nut bread, 24 banana chocolate chip muffins, 47 giant oatmeal raisin cookies, a big trays of chocolate fudge and 87 gingersnap cookies..... And I'm just getting started.
I'll be baking Sunday through Tuesday-- Some lemon bundt cakes, brownies, maybe a couple of apple pies, lots more cookies and whatever else I can think of.
You can meet my bake sale friends HERE. They're a couple of awesome 8 year olds!
I am very late in sending blog love and a big thank you to three really wonderful women-- The amazing Se'lah from the Necessary Room hosted a beautiful and generous "Gift of Jewels" pen pal project bringing 70 bloggers from 13 countries together to exchange cards/"jewels" with one another. It was a joyful project that introduced me to Connie of Loose Lemons from North Carolina-- I sent my "jewels" to her, and Suvarna of Rapt In Light from Vancouver BC, Canada, who sent two beautiful "jewels" to me. This was a really special opportunity to reach out to bloggers "in real life" and I loved it. Thanks ladies!
Continued prayers and hugs to Unknown Mami. Check out more of her Sundays In My City participants HERE.
How's your Sunday?
