Alright, I’m coming right out and saying it. I didn’t do the challenge this month! So if you came to this blog looking for the challenge, then it isn’t here. Sorry. I wanted to do the challenge, I really did, but I just couldn’t find the time to fit it in.
I’m actually very sorry I didn’t do the challenge. This marks only the Second Challenge that I have missed since joining the Daring Bakers back in July 2007. So… including my first challenge, this should have been challenge number 26 for me. So having done 24/26 gives me a percentage score of 92.3.
If you include the extra credit for the Pretzel Challenge (this was the very first challenge that kick started this group) then my ‘Grade’ would be higher yet! Aaaahh.. if only I had scored this well when I was studying for my Engineering Degree in Uni many years ago…
So anyway.. I didn't get to do the Dobos Torta, that was the challenge for this month hosted by by Lorraine of Not Quite Nigella and Angela of A Spoonful of Sugar.
I leave you anyway with pictures of my two children trying Escargot or snails when we celebrated The Lovely Wife's birthday at the beginning of the month. I feel it is very important to expose them to different kinds of food and so when we saw Escargot on the menu, we decided to order half a dozen. Not the best I've had but exposure for the kids nonetheless!
