Another day of baking. I've finished a double batch of blueberry muffins and a double batch of double chocolate muffins, and am almost finished with the three nisu (Finnish cardamom bread). A nisu and a few muffins will stay home, the rest will go with me and a friend tomorrow.

I'm torn between being really impressed with myself for getting this much done at all since I can't run any water down the drains at the moment (plumbing problem, don't ask, makes washing dishes an interesting job though :)), and feeling that I should have managed to do more cooking anyway. One of those "one must always bring masses of food when going to a gathering" things. Generally I enjoy it, which is kind of odd since I'm not all that fond of cooking. I had all these great ideas for stuff to make, ended up going with (mostly) those that created the fewest dishes to wash. I eliminated one item (carrot bread) from consideration because it requires a food processor and cleaning the food processor is such a pain even if you haven't been using it on instant-stain carrots!

Then again I also enjoy being feastocrat for our local SCA group, at least on rare occasion, and always wonder why that is because, well, see above about me and cooking :). I'm a fair cook, but a practical cook--function over form, as with just about everything else. Well, ideally function and form but if you can only have one...

I've never heard of nisu...it sounds great! You're brave to bake in this heat! I'm a wimp and only attempted it today after the weather became cooler.

I hope it turned out great, I didn't get a chance to try it (since we left at 3 a.m. Saturday, and it was going to go out for Sunday's breakfast).

It was just barely doable as a day-trip, but pretty tiring that way--I am still exhausted today :(. Then again I gave up giving up sleep a few years ago, I probably don't have the stamina I used to :).
