Apparently today is Blue Monday. A day where everyone's depressed because they've failed to put their New Year's resolutions into action and don't have any stat holidays until the end of April. Yeah...that is pretty depressing.
I have actually made some very good progress on my New Year's resolutions, which is why I haven't had a moment to spare for baking. I've been going to the gym almost every day and am working back at the bike shop part-time to bring in extra cash to save for school. I guess I need to work out a way to fit all that in and still do some baking, because I miss it! I read that if you introduce New Year's resolutions gradually over the year, you're more likely to acheive them, so maybe I will make one starting in February to blog twice a week.
I did finally get around to some baking last night and decided to make biscotti. I figured it would be something that I could eat without feeling terribly guilty, and because it lasts forever, I wouldn't feel the pressure to eat it before it goes bad. Well, maybe I'm out of practice, but it was a total disaster. I now have a cookie jar filled with biscotti bits. They taste great, but were not pretty AT ALL. I have a few baking plans for next weekend, so hopefully I'll be back on track soon.
For now, stay happy people!
