Just took out some baguettes made with my new french bread pan. They look pretty good. Next project is to get the perfect score on the top of the bread. The cuts didn't open up as much as I'd like. But still looks OK

Just did that the other day. Added some small shelves so now every section of wall space has shelving, which makes me happy! Had to make room for the wedding gifts!

It was a good chance to get the food donations packed up for the food bank.

Instead of using a blade or lame, try cutting with a pair of sharp scissors.

Thanks for the tip! Just my first attempt at making a legit baguette.

I got sidetracked by the stove area...there are bottles of things we don't even use fast enough to leave them by the stove. And I moved all the breakfast cereal back to the pantry. Have to stop being lazy.

Finishing making dinner to have with Sprout and her girls. Roast beef, Sprout is bringing baked potatoes, just put the yorkshire pudding in the oven, and a mix of fresh sliced veggies. Should be a good dinner. Hoping the yorkshire pudding turns out. Never made it before. Looked easy enough but I've totally flopped before on stuff that looked "easy enough".

After breakfast, spent the morning and early afternoon doing a thorough cleaning of the kitchen. pparantly I'm a slob.

Had to roll the fridge out to clean up the residue from a bottle of root beer that busted. Found a fair amount of dust back there too. Considering that whenever we drop an ice cube, it gets kicked under the fridge to melt and evaporate, it wasn't as bad as I thought it might have been.

You're a brave man, Andy.
I have appliances that no way am I pulling them away from the wall until they die

I just finished watching "Last Tango In Halifax" on PBS. (Love the show!) There is a segment where the two main characters have a scare with a ghost.

So my question is:

"Does the average Brit believe in ghosts?" And has any member across the pond seen any?
