|Coconut Bun 椰子麵包|
Those who don't know English slang, having a "Bun-in-the-oven" means you are pregnant. I am officially overdue - well, not me as such. Junior is. Estimated Due Date
I don't mind too much, I've had it fairly easy throughout my pregnancy. I'm finding the swollen feet and ankles annoying as it makes walking a little more sore and having a big bump in front of you certainly slows you down and gets in the way when you drop something (which is ALL the time!).

I think I might have got a bit carried away! At least I know how many buns are made out of a portion of Alex's Basic Sweet Bun Dough!
I also made 4 jars of Three Berry Jam (Raspberry, Blueberry and Blackberry) - I decided to make room in the freezer and these frozen berries were taking up too much room! Home-made jam is so much tastier than store-bought, Somehow there is an intensity of fruit flavour that I don't get from a shop-bought jar. These berries were just on special offer at the time and found their way into the freezer for jam-making. Haven't been picking any raspberries from Mum's garden this year.
I was going to buy a loaf of bread from the bakery yesterday but seeing as hubbs had bought a new toy - we'd thought we'd make our own. I like my toast in the morning - hubbs is seems is not a big bread lover.
I'll post up the bread and buns later on separate posts. Too tired now!
