I like to bake. I don’t actually bake as much or as often as I’d like to but that’s mostly because I’m trying not to eat so much baking. Sadly I haven’t got enough will power to bake without being tempted to also consume – sometimes in vast quantities.
So, I tend to limit my baking to items that lean more towards ‘nutritious’ instead of ‘decadent’. I will also admit that, although I don’t dislike nutritious, I definitely crave those decadent items. Consequently I only bake those sweeter items for special occasions – preferably ones where the baked treats are taken to a location away from my home.
I’ve picked out ten recipes – some cannot be considered ‘healthy’.
I’ve bought all the necessary ingredients – and I’m trying not to eat them (some of the chocolate and butterscotch chips have unfortunately already been sacrificed).
I’ve set aside some time – hopefully it is enough to finish all the baking.
Why? Two words….
Next Thursday (March 15th, 2012) the Manitoba Nature Summit is having their annual Dinner and a Movie fundraiser and you are all invited. It will be at 6:30 pm in the large gym at Stanley Knowles School, 2424 King Edward St.
Of course the bake sale is just a small part of the event. The movie is the main event. We will also be having pizza and popcorn. You’ll need to RSVP immediately if you want pizza – the order deadline is today!
Even if you don’t want to order pizza, or you missed the deadline, you can still come to see the movie. I’ve seen it – it is amazing – truly inspirational. It is called ‘A Simple Question: The Story of STRAW’ It is the perfect example of what can happen when educators are able to provide meaningful experiences that connect children and nature.
So come out and support the Nature Summit 2012 and our efforts to provide opportunities for educators to learn useful skills and create opportunities for nature and environmental education.
I hope to see you there! – I don’t want to have to bring any leftover baking home.
