Needed to quickly bake something for my 1 month-anniversary at the new place. Didn’t have time to mess with something new, so I turned to proven my-&-Martha’s Banana Bread recipe. Every time I open an old post and see familiar Jeffro’s avatar in comments the loss hits me anew…somehow he is never far from the “back of my mind”.
Brought the bread to office, send an email to Staff, set up table in the pantry. I sit close by and in the first 2 hrs after the email I didn’t notice anybody trying it. Started to feel rather awkward. Then I asked M., our IT guy – what’s up, is he watching his girlish figure or something? “You promised it’s handmade – he said, – so I am waiting for somebody else to be the first”.
He was only half kidding, I could tell. Ah, Asians: ever so cautious.
OK, then, I AM watching my figure but if they insist…Got up and took the first slice. Then Client called, then shop drawings arrived, then I had to stamp my redline and send it out, etc etc etc. At 4pm, as usual, I need a coffee boost, so I went to pantry to get the last cup of the day.
Not a slice of cake was left on the plate! Not a crumb!
