It's been a long time; almost as long as Mom and Bill have owned the Lodge, so this must be our 13th year. The first year was My Girls and Hall (my ex-boyfriend); the following year we added to our "menu" and the number of bakers grew. Thirteen years is a long time for a tradition - we've been through break-ups, marriages, and children. Some of the bakers come and go, but at the core of it has always been My Girls.

Other than my super secret special project (there will be posts), I don't have anything special planned this year for Baking Weekend. I wanted to make more mozzarella, which was so much fun, but decided to try something new this year. RCC has something up his sleeve too, that I'm sure will be wonderful.
Mostly, what I'm looking forward to this Baking Weekend, is getting to hang out with My Girls. I love them and this is the only guaranteed time we get to spend together. I haven't seen Sue since last Baking Weekend and I saw Robs and Staci in June when Robs had her baby. How is it that a mere sixty miles can seem like half a world away?
