What do you do when you're bored?

When I'm bored I cook, well bake.  In the last couple of weeks I've had some (ok a lot of) free time on my hands so I went a bit baking mad.  I wanted to share with you some of the things I've made.  Most of my bakes are inspired by The Great British Bake Off, who in time will make me very very fat!

Lemon Macarons:

A couple of weekends ago I tried to make Lemon Macarons.  I knew they were difficult but I didn't realise quite how difficult! The first batch tasted amazing though, as did the second...



English Muffins:

Last weekend I made English Muffins.  They were a lot of fun to make and really easy to cook on the Aga.  I would say though, make sure you have the correct size cutter - a mug really won't work the same.  Also they must be eaten with Marmite.


Bread:

This week I started to get a bit more adventurous.  I made a standard white loaf but decided to shape it into a flower.  Not only did it look good, it actually tasted pretty good too (though I say it myself)



Bread and Cake:

Today I made "best of both" loaf, so half wholemeal, half white flour, which I have just been told is my dinner so I hope it tastes alright.  The other bake is a lemon drizzle cake because "you can't have tea without cake" no matter how big you're lunch was.


So there you go, that's what I do when I'm bored.  What do you do?  Probably something more normal?
