The dining room sink was filled with dishes
I absolutely like to spend time baking. It’s one of my number one activities to share with the teenagers and the two of us consistently have fun together when the two of us are cooking in the dining room. I like to make cookies, cakes, pies, and other sweet confections. The best time for baking is the Winter season, but baking is a fantastic way to moderate up the house, because the oven adds heat to the dining room. Occasionally during the fall season, I bake cookies and cakes to make the apartment warm. The attractive odors fill the house. It’s cheaper than running the furnace for a couple of hours. Running the furnace can cost several dollars each afternoon, but it’s just 55 cents to run the oven all afternoon. I like to fill the apartment with the sweet odors of cinnamon, vanilla, sugar, and rum. Last fall, the two of us had a actually frigid weekend and the temperatures were close to cold. I did not want to turn on the furnace, because the weather was supposed to get warmer on Monday. The teenagers and I spent all afternoon on Saturday and Friday baking cookies and cakes. By the time the two of us were done, the two of us had 3 dozen delicious cookies in chocolate chip, oatmeal, and butterscotch varieties. The dining room sink was filled with dishes. One of the easiest and cheapest ways to heat your home in the Winter is running other appliances that will add heat to the indoor atmosphere. I even leave the oven door open when I am done baking so the extra heat will enter the air.
