I cannot believe another Great British Bake Off has come to an end, I do have to say congratulations to Rahul on his win. Were we all happy with Paul and Prue's choice? I was, in fact I liked all the finalists and any one of them deserved to win but apart from a couple of wobbly's Rahul remained the most consistent.
It was a great series and I particularly liked the shock feature of not using the oven, no cooking at the benches and having to go outside and cook, what a surprise. I think I would have panicked slightly if I had to go and cook my pitta bread outside and with added dips. The British public were shocked and disillusioned by it all as well with people tweeting that they were 'going outside', (cue some dramatic music). They survived though although I do love how some charred bits had to be scraped off the odd pitta, I do that after cooking them in a conventional oven.
I wasn't too impressed by the showstoppers, they didn't stop the show for me at all. They all looked a bit dreary and dismal. I like something stunning, like a magnificent cake with thirty layers of sponge and loads of icing that looks proper posh but hey maybe that's me asking for too much. Maybe Atlantis and a rock garden are suitable for the final, who ya kidding Paul and Prue......I don't need to tell you your jobs but come on demand more!!!
It was a great series I really enjoyed it and what a lovely choice of contestants. I don't even miss Mary, Mel and Sue at all....sorry girls I am fond of you but we do get to see you on other shows so all is not lost.
What else happened this week? Oh Strangers came to it's conclusion didn't it? That was good, I have enjoyed that. I think they could have wrapped it all up last week but it did have a good twist at the end.
I am trying to get to grips with The Little Drummer Girl. It is one of those dramas that you need to concentrate on in case you miss something. I did enjoy the first one and I think I know what is happening but I need to catch up now with the second one. I was watching it but there was too much going off so I thought I would leave it until I get some quiet time. Oh that makes me chuckle slightly......quiet time??? What is that exactly? I have heard it's when everything around you falls silent, you have achieved all your chores and one can sit down with a brew and chill......oh did I mention brew?
Right I'm off for one now and try and explore this quiet time. Wish me luck! Thank you so much for reading, you may go and make a brew too but join me again tomorrow for Music Monday........
Take care for now.
