Uh oh. I have a mean craving. PMS is upon me and I can’t stop thinking about CAKE. Or any sweet dessert. Pie, cake, ice cream sundae, pastries… This normally wouldn’t be too big of a problem. I’d just enjoy a nice piece of cake on Free Day or for a Free Meal. HOWEVER, I don’t get a free day for eight more days. This is going to be tough. I REALLY want cake!!!

I can’t stop thinking about it. Yum. Oh, you know what else would be good??? High tea! Oh, how I’d love to enjoy a beautiful traditional English teatime with those yummy and delicate little sandwiches and scones! Matt, you must give us all the details of a proper high tea!

I WILL NOT CAVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I enjoyed reading your food journey as I am on one too. I am not being as disciplined as you are however! Good luck and hang in there! PS You were right, the food porn was a real scandal! :)

Take care.

I only have a vague idea about high tea strangely enough.

Mainly as I don't like Cake, and hate the look and smell of Tea ha ha ha.

It seems to be the thing, that you end up with a small 2 or 3 tiered display stand, with little tiddly cakes on them, so it ends up looking like a Christmas Tree. I suppose you could say a Cake Tree :-s :-s.

It usually occurs outdoors on the Lawn, with the best Bone China, and Silverware, and you're supposed to drink Tea with the little finger, (pinkie), sticking up. Don't ask why, I don't know, it looks silly drinking like that.

That seems to be the gist of it from what I've ever been able to gather.

It's just a pompous tradition really, supposedly a very quintessential British thing to do, though traditionally for those with more money than sense.

As for what you asked about my accent, it's a bit of this and that, not really something that could be pinned down, to anything in particular, though it probably has traces of certain regional accents in it.

I'm so used to it I can't tell myself.

It's just ordinary ;-) ;-).

As for your Cake thoughts, I had a dream once about Sausages.

I woke up with an image of a huge Sausage in my head, and I was thinking I could just go for a bit of Sausage right now, but when I noticed it was just after 7AM, I dropped such ideas. 7AM is way too early in day to eat stuff like that ;-) ;-).

Yuuummm!!! Stay strong and don't cave in!

I love the ceiling fan! I've never seen one like it and it looks really cool!

Not a fan of sashimi either. Love raw fish, but it needs to have rice and dipped in lots of soy sauce & wasabi.

Have a great weekend!

Hey, if you ever need to Fed-Ex something to get rid of the temptation, I'll send you my address. Happy to help. I LOVE your food porn. It's all decadent. Way better quality than my failure with rice krispie treats :(

OOHHHHHHH You are evil. Posting those pictures of dilectable treats.

You must resist!!!!! Have a BFL bar instead!!!!

Oh man. I read your blog despite the warning because I thought it was going to be about sex or violence or something. Not food porn! It's a good thing there's no cake in my house, because right now it would be GONE! :P

What is is about cupcakes that's so seductive? I REALLY shouldn't have looked...

Oh, and are you in N Cal, by chance? I saw a comment on another blog where you said it was 107 a few days ago, and I think we may be living in the same general area...I'm outside of Sac.
