Yesterday I made Julia Child's famous Mousse Au Chocolat. Today, I made a cookie pie crust (from scratch), so I can have Mousse Pie. I hope it works, that mousse was a pain to make (but I loved it every step of the way)!

Not to mention hunting, cleaning and hauling that Mousse.

Baked a loaf of French bread today and had a *duh* moment. I was thinking of three things at the same time (not good) while I was adding all my ingredients into the bread machine tub, got it snapped into the machine, turned it on, reached over for the cup with those two ounces of "in cast you need more" water...and realized I dumped it all in. Said to Himself "I'm going to have some very loose dough over here!" Sure enough, rather fluid. Well, that's what a bread pan is for. I did knead more flour into the dough before I plopped it into the pan and let it get on with its second rise. I also managed to take it out of the oven before it was dry enough throughout. It's not wet or doughy in the middle, just a bit moist. We figure it will make really great toast.

Guess I'll bake another loaf tomorrow. I need bread for sandwiches "for the road". Thank goodness for bread machines.

I made some gluten-free chocolate chip cookies. Unfortunately, there aren't many left

I made a small apple pandowdy using 2 honeycrisp apples last night to go with what is left of our homemade cinnamon ice cream. We ate half of it last night and half of the ice cream. Guess what's for dessert tonight?

"Gunpowder, treason and Plot"

"Bonfire night" on November 5th. Loosely commemorates the failure of Guy Fawkes and others to blow up the Houses of Parliament in 1605 (you see - Hitler wasn't the first) Bonfires, with an effigy of Guy Fawkes and fireworks all round and goodies to eat including a yummy ginger, treacle and oatmeal cake called Parkin (originally a northern English cake, I think).

I'm a bit late in making my parkin - it really needs a fortnight to really mature and get nice and sticky. However, I will be looking out Mother's recipe and baking it this afternoon.

Treacle toffee, aka Bonfire toffee, is another speciality for Bonfire Night but I don't make it - I value my teeth and their fillings too much. "Bonfire toffee is a hard, brittle toffee associated with Halloween and Guy Fawkes Night in the United Kingdom. The toffee tastes very strongly of molasses, and cheap versions can be quite bitter." Actually, it isn't associated with Hallowe'en over here. Until recently, hallowe'en wasn't much bothered with over here but now the stores and the food magazines have got on the bandwagon and it's taken off a bit

I have Nordic Cheese Bread in the proofing bowl.

https://www.cooked.com/uk/Trine-Hahn...e-bread-recipe

It was one of four recipes in October's Viking magazine. I wanted to try the Rye Rolls, but don't have the barley malt syrup or rye flour.

The cheese bread is easy to make...the dough is a fairly stiff dough. Time will tell if I nailed it or not. Hopefully, it will turn out better than today's sewing project...I HATE my Mom's sewing machine. I want my Viking (Husqvarna!!!). It weren't so expensive, I would have been tempted to have it shipped down overnight express (although, that is really up, because Ottawa is south of Northern MN so I travel north to get to MN...).

That used to be one of my favourite desserts...before I had to cut gluten and refined sugar out of my diet. I grew up on it. MMMM cinnamon ice cream is the perfect side!

I am going to have to find out a way to make it work!
