This was a first for me … I’ve never before played around with the dark art of macaron making. It was a lot of faffing about with different things and precise instructions (not my favourite way of cooking), and while my mocha creations tasted delicious I’m not sure I’d hurry to make them again. But it’s OK macarons of the world, I’ll still love you forever more.
Other recent happenings:
Making … Anzac biscuits (thick & chewy), lemon yoghurt cake for a certain special someone’s birthday.
Watching … The Avengers (hello RDJ, hello Chris Hemsworth), Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol again (lots of fun – an easy watch), X-Men First Class again (why hello Mr Fassbender). Clearly it’s been a month for blockbusters and handsome men (hello husband!).
Writing … lots and lots.
Reading … Frankie, Casual Days (makes me miss Singapore), Super Natural Every Day (lots of delicious meals).
Enjoying … the cool and rainy weather (autumn is so lovely).
After finishing my couch-to-5k running program a while ago, I’ve since embarked on a half-marathon training program just for the hell of it. I’m only in week two, but I’m falling more and more in love with my treadmill, so it’s been going really well so far. Before I go, I must also say thank you for your very sweet comments on my previous post … you guys are the best! 🙂
