And a slice of Battenberg Cake?
No, you have not wandered into greedybread.
My lovely friend in Brixham sent me a whole lot of marzipan at Xmas when I was making my Stollen and I thought I would use some today.
Marzipan at times here, (almond paste too) is like trying to find a needle in a haystack hence why my friend sent it to me:)
The supermarkets try to fob off this hideous white/almond icing on you and say its marzipan!!
So lovely friend I have, sent me a care package down here to the colonies….
I know the traditional cake is pink/red and white BUT…..
I was going to do black and white for NZ but I didn’t have apricot jam and I didn’t want glaring red jam on white sponge!!
Ugly….So black and red it was…
Might try blue as well…
As you can imagine the greedyboys LOVED this….Must be the sugar…
Even cat arse boy:)…
Everyone must have had a great sleep as no lemon sucking or cats arse’s today and even his majesty is not on the computer…
Granted I am having to listen to American Idol or some other rubbish but you can’t have it all!!
I had a sliver of this with my black tar coffee I like.
Made a gorgeous apple, raisin and cinnamon bread too…which is much better after the exercise , refueling wise…
Now I have a wee confession….
I have not been as vigilant at doing the evil core plan as I should have been.
Not sure how I will do the 3 but I will adjust my weights etc and go from there…
Janathon day twenty-two….
45 minutes Boot camp
45 minutes running 8.2 kms.
The boot camp circuit this morning was particularly nasty!!!
This one rope exercise (below)Urgh….i am not sure what it is called apart from bastard hell…
Flicking bloody heavy ropes…..
I thought “ha easy “…well 75 of these babies later…not so!!
Well, after 15, I thought nooooooooo!!!
Ah ha!! I know what it is called ….
Not sure that is what I would call it but whatever…its hideous!! But effective I imagine.
Hanging out for February 1st as I am really feeling tired…
But I am a stubborn bugger and will see it through till the end:)
If I felt I would injure myself, I would have a day off.
Head down, bum up…almost there:)
Keep calm and eat cake?
RUN TONTO RUN!!
