I bake, I bake and I bake

This was one of those weekends where I wanted nothing more than to have some time to myself.  When I am working I feel so confined in the small space and there is no escaping interaction with others. After nine hours of that, I wait to head out and be on my own.   The minute I got back from LA, it seemed I had an endless list of social obligations, which meant the alone time was rare.

I enjoy spending time with my friends, however, there are moments I want to shut everyone and everything out and have no agenda. If I want to sit around reading the entire day or watching copious amounts of TV show, then I want to do that without being  on a schedule.

As always, I spent my Saturday morning at the farmers market. I kept dreaming of my weekend while I stood around in the 40 degree temperature. Top of my list was cleaning my apartment and reading and writing and baking.

The rendezvous with the kitchen started because I had to bake another batch of Sri Lankan Fruit cake for the market and then there was no stopping me. The left over egg whites needed to be used up, which resulted in a Lime Angel Food cake with Pistachios

It seems I somehow  hit pause at baking, therefore, there is not much to say, but there is a lot to show for my time in the kitchen.

About my random musings

I am originally from South East Asia and I moved to the US about 15 years ago to follow my heart. My heart has since been broken a few times, but I continue to be on journey of trying to mend it. I could talk about running, baking or writing in a small crowd, but put me in a room full of strangers and I will be the one standing in a corner people watching. When I am not writing or running, I would be in my kitchen, flour strewn all over the kitchen counters, music playing in the background and me just rolling and folding dough, excited about what my creation will turn out to be. Besides that I love passionately, when I love, I give it my all, not always a good thing, but that is who I am. I jump both feet in and sometimes I come out with regrets but having learnt a lesson. I believe everything happens for a reason and this is my place to share bits and pieces of my life, my adventures and sometimes misadventures. Hope you enjoy reading my stories as much I enjoy sharing them with you.
