Baking is such a fun hobby to take on. Not only do you get to enjoy yourself by doing what you love, but your friends and family can enjoy them too. They’ll secretly love you more (than they already do of course 🙂 ). Since I don’t have much family and friends around me, I either give them to my co-workers and/or D-‘s co-workers. It boosts up morale in the office and you get to hear what people think of them. I love how I can bake treats for D- and his co-workers because with much stress at work, there’s a little glimmer of happiness when treats are being passed around.
Ah, Fenton’s. I enjoy the atmosphere there for the little time I spent getting my ice cream to-go when I blogged about it here a couple months ago. I wanted to stay and eat there so badly, but was so frustrated with how tough it was to find parking. Now I had an excuse to go back there, and I certainly did… for W-‘s birthday a couple weeks after that! I planned a whole day for us and going to Fenton’s for lunch was one of them. We went earlier this time so it would be easier to find parking.
We got wonderful booth seats and the place was practically empty around 11am. The service is great too. If you never ate there before, the waiter would most definitely tell you about their foods. Yum, their meals are so delicious! You would think that since it is a creamery that the food would taste horrible, but nope. It’s quite up there on my list.
My brother came to visit us during his spring break from college. We hung out. Had some Ben and Jerry’s and chatted. It was all good fun. Then the topic of Fenton’s came up very briefly, but it lingered in my mind for quite some time.
