Since it was a slow Friday so far (Not!!!), I made some biscuits. Don't ask. Sometimes I worry why I cramm my days like that.

Anyway, I was #audiobaking and hence the time wasn't wasted. 😁

Now some #audioknitting.

julesG @sarahbarnes @DivineDiana Thank you! I've hidden the biscuit tins from the teenage locusts, otherwise they'd be empty already. 3w

#Audiobaking, because commercial Gluten Free crackers are terrible, and these are not. I can do without bread, but not without crackers.
And I'm enjoying Veronica's antarctic penguin adventures.

Suet624 Yum! 3w
Aimeesue @Suet624 They are REALLY good. I was pleasantly surprised. Hope I can restrain myself and make them last a week or so. 😁 3w

Delightful! Loved this queer romance with a tv decor show setting. The characters were great-complicated but kind and so much fun to root for! I liked this one even more than the first in the series. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks #audiobaking #JoyousJanuary @Andrew65

Andrew65 Brilliant 👏👏👏 3w
TheAromaofBooks Great progress!! 3w

I did finish BEL CANTO, and it was marvellous! It‘s definitely going on my list of great opera books, with a note about how it‘s a great human nature book even if you aren‘t into the musical side of things.

I thought y‘all might like to see the cinnamon buns, too, all decked out in their cream cheese frosting. They‘re destined to get grilled up for breakfast tomorrow. #audiobaking

sebrittainclark Those look so good! 2mo
xicanti @sebrittainclark the one I ate to make sure they were okay was great! 2mo
sebrittainclark @xicanti is so important to test baked goods for quality 😆 2mo

batsy Yum! I'm all about the roll as an add on to the star of the show, which is the cream cheese frosting 😆 2mo
xicanti @marleed @Catsandbooks I think there‘ll be some happy mouths here later this morning. 2mo
xicanti @batsy I first made these to use up some leftover cream cheese frosting! Now I make them so I‘ve got an excuse to whip up more of it. (edited) 2mo
BkClubCare Oh!! I need to reread this. 1mo
xicanti @BkClubCare it was my first Patchett. I‘m gonna have to read more from her. 1mo
BkClubCare @xicanti - and you starting at a good place, I might suggest State of Wonder next. 1mo
xicanti @BkClubCare noted! 1mo
BkClubCare @xicanti - 😊 I know that there are authors I am intimidated to try because I don‘t know where to start. 1mo

So far today I‘ve assembled a trifle for tomorrow, iced an eggnog cake for tonight, and baked cinnamon buns. Even with most of the components already made, it‘s been a busy morning.

I don‘t think I‘ll be able to finish BEL CANTO this afternoon, but I should get close enough to the end that I‘ll manage it tomorrow. It‘s excellent so far; not quite as stellar as I thought it‘d be in the beginning, but still damned good. I love it. #audiobaking

MommyWantsToReadHerBook Your trifle looks amazing 🍒 2mo
xicanti @MommyWantsToReadHerBook thanks! It‘s my grandma‘s recipe, tweaked a little bit. 2mo
Catsandbooks Looks tasty! 2mo
xicanti @Catsandbooks I‘m really excited to eat it later. 2mo

#Audiobaking with this thriller for book club. So far this one is good and I have questions that I assume will be answered? I am not seeing where this is going and reviews say the ending is surprising and satisfying.

I‘ve decided I should finally finish the Lunar Chronicles, which means I‘m rereading the first three. It‘s been six years and I‘ve forgotten a lot, but that just means I get the fun of discovering stuff yet again. I hope CRESS comes available soon.

I finished SCARLET while I baked everything bagel buns filled with cream cheese and chives. They‘re good, but I‘ll something else to the filling next time. It‘s missing that extra oomph. #audiobaking

Karisa I loved that series (especially Cinder)😍 4mo
xicanti @Karisa it‘s got such great fairy tale energy. 4mo
xicanti @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I love it when an idea works out! 4mo
