24 little hours…

The weeds took over during the heat wave last week, but they are vanquished at the moment. First flowers appeared this week, 50 days after planting.

Using a giant Speculaas board

Here’s a old Dutch speculaas mold (antieke speculaasplank) that my parents bought in Holland in 1960.  Using it was tricky — definitely flour the mold first.  Then use a knife or a wire (like a clay cutter) to horizontally trim the excess dough off.  Then invert on a baking sheet.  Ta da!
