Formal exercise did not happen today. I got a covid 19 vaccine in the morning – bright and early and stirred myself to drive. Usually I’ve been letting others do that for me 😊. The day got busy from there with lots of errands and before I knew it it was 4 pm. Yikes. Having said that, we had gone for a mile walk whilst the car was being serviced. The walk was not quick because we had to pick our way along a very rough surface. I guess you could say that it was functional fitness seeing as most of my exercise is in very controlled locations. Anyway, it was rough and sloping or walk beside a highway. Finished off the day with cheesecake and wine – so nice and thanks to a wonderful lactase supplement, I had no ill effects (I have missed cheesecake!).
Part of my problem is that there are so many new foods to try. Part of my problem is that I want to make the foods that I like – and now I have time to experiment with them. Take cinnamon scrolls. I quite like the ones that bakeries sell in Australia. Over here, the scrolls seem to be loaded with sugar, coated in frosting. I am not talking about the light drizzle that Australian bakers glaze their scrolls with – I am talking full coverage. They’re lovely – do not get me wrong, but I want what I am used to. Therefore I have to bake my own. I guess the healthy choice is that I leave off the icing. At least when I go back to work, I won’t have as much time to experiment in the kitchen.
The cinnamon scrolls were very nice and sweet enough with the sultanas (golden raisens for you USA folks) without any extra glacing, frosting or otherwise on the top. I used a naan bread dough for those who are interested.
