A Blogger Bake Sale
Top of the morning to you bloggies! This morning's post will be a quick one and I promise to return later with a recap of yesterday's eats!
But first let's talk baking . . .
As some of you may know a couple of months ago Meghan of "The Inner Workings of a College Graduate" held an incredibly profitable bake sale with the proceeds going to her efforts towards the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's (LLS) Team In Training.
Well it's that time again - Meghan has announced the bake sale is back!!! Woohoo - I missed out on participating in the first one as I was new to the whole food blogging thing back then. But there's no way I'm missing out this time.
And this time Canadians can participate too! In fact the sale will be sectioned off for Canadian goodies and American ones. That way there will be no worries of baked goods unable to cross the border. It seems last time there were a lot of disappointed Canadians.
Won't you consider participating? All it would involve would be a donation of time and baked goods. It would benefit a great cause and support a fellow blogger!
And if you're not into baking you could always bid on a baked good. Yummy eats for charity! Sounds good to me! :o)
I intend to participate but my question to you out there is: What would you like to see in the bake sale?
I can try to modify a recipe or bake a classic. I'm quite proud of my baking skills but tend to avoid baking too much because it tempts me so. Any ideas?
And in parting, yesterday's workout:
1) I woke up and did A.M. yoga (calves began to tighten)
2) At lunch I went for a short walk
3) I did Day 1 of my circuit training
4) I attempted an interval run but by this point my calves were crazy tight. I could barely stand up straight. So I had to pull up and call it a day.
PS: I made those Linzer cookies two Christmases ago
