Not Quite Summer. Silicone Baking Sheets.

I was so excited when I checked the weather forecast for Tuesday last night.  31C as a maximum with a balmy 19C overnight.

I fished out one of my pairs of Bettina Liano denim shorts from that Costco haul I made a few weeks back and even managed to find my favourite pair of Birkis (right where I left them at the end of last summer).  Sadly, I only got to wear the Birkis because it's taking it's time today to hit that 31 degrees.

It's also pretty cloudy (I should have paid more attention to the clouded over sun icon on my phone) so this is as much bright gold as I got to see today inside my bag as opposed to up in the sky -  the lining of my bag as I opened it to safely store a random knob of ginger that I discovered on the floor of the car on my way from the pool.  Actually, it's not even that random a knob of ginger.  It fell out of my shopping bag last night as I unpacked the car.

I'm a big fan of canned plums with my muesli.  I think this version flavoured with Amaretto and vanilla will definitely ensure my day gets off to the best possible start.  From Aldi, where else?

In more 'from Aldi, where else?' news, I lucked out and found this pair of silicone baking sheets.  They were the last couple at my local store.

And I found them just in time to bake a batch of Sally's Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.  I've never understood the joy some people find with eating cookie dough until now...  Butter, cinnamon, vanilla and brown sugar.  So good together as is and baked.

Google told me that you don't need to grease silicone baking sheets before use.

And Google was correct.  All my cookies slid off the sheets cleanly with the help of a spatula.  The sheets were also very easy to wash clean afterwards as well.  A light rinse loosened any stray crumbs or smudges of melted chocolate.

So I'm now officially a convert to silicone baking sheets.  Do you use them yourself?

  1. I've never used silicone baking sheets before, but as my kids love baking with their grandmother so much I should try get things like that I think! :)

    It's supposed to be just as warm tomorrow as it was today, not quite 31 but getting there.

    Hope you are having a lovely start to the week :)
