*Sigh tomorrow is Monday.
All it did today was rain. Rain, rain, rain all day long. It was a lazy and damp Sunday. The sun managed to come out for a bit around 3:45 in order to snap these pics really quickly. I spent most of the day watching Food Network and trying to clean my kitchen. Then I was wondering why my traffic is so low for today, because usually on Sunday it is the highest day. Then I forgot, today is Mother’s Day and usually if there’s a Holiday on the weekend that means a day of low traffic. Do any of you other bloggers experience that or is it just me? Ha, speaking of blogging, I’ve been thinking about writing a series of posts on things that bother me about blogging, cause let’s face it. Sometimes being a blogger can be really frustrating.
These are the easiest danishes you could possibly make, because the secret is using a can of Pillsbury crescent rolls. No kneading or making your own puff pastry for these. That is however on my bucket list of foods to try making one of these days. The center of the danishes is cream cheese with a little bit of powdered sugar. Bake them in the oven for about 15 minutes and when they come out drizzle some chocolate over the top and top with bacon. I was a bit lazy after yoga class today, and this ended up being my dinner. Don’t tell anyway mmk? J/k. 🙂Print
