Home yesterday, and baking today. Just the way I like to settle back in.
It was a case of a sleep-in, coffee with a friend, and a go at the carrot and ginger cake from Everything I Want To Eat, the Christmas gift I have loved and poured over for the past two weeks. The recipe did not disappoint - carrot and ginger, with cinnamon, almond milk and apple sauce (though I used pear instead). It was nice to be home, to not wear shoes and water my plants and enjoy the afternoon light.
A friend came over with a couple of pale ales (as all nice guys should), and we ate cake and talked and before you know it, the day was gone.
