I've been baking all weekend, it seems. Zucchini bread on Friday, zucchini cake with cream cheese frosting yesterday, and peach pie today!

I made some Irish soda bread this morning. We had some for lunch with Maasdamer cheese, honey mustard, sliced onions and pickled beets.

Baking done for the weekend. Sandwich rolls, NYT bread and rolls for brats. Been a busy morning in the kitchen starting at 0630 and finished at noon.

Time to go looking for hardwood flooring for the home office. DW wants the right color floor to go with the furniture. Probably going to be mahogany.

First time I've baked since Buck died. Just finished 3 dozen cake mix cookies. Used strawberry cake mix and mixed in white baking chips and coarsely chopped walnuts. They smelled great as they were baking and turned out beautifully. Haven't sampled them yet. I'll wait until dinnertime to enjoy them.

Just finished some cocoa mounds. Well, they're not actually baked, they're cooked on top of the stove.

As much as I like nuts in my chocolate chip cookies, I didn't add them today cause hubby is home with me and after all, they are for him not for me. He likes them, said they're very good but wants them more baked, so they'd be crisp. I had to remind him, "honey, I underbaked them so they'd be soft". "oh" he said. He's such a nucklehead....had to toss in a butter dish....or 3

Does granola count? I'm doing some right now and searching for an answer to my baking question.

...and here I sit without a glass of ice cold milk. The look Delish! Send me some with lots of walnuts. Can't have enough nuts in cookies, IMHO.
