"What's HoBOO?" you ask
Well, it's Home Baked Only October.
Reading Holly's blog awhile back, I came across some key principles by Michael Pollan in a recent speech. Number (4) on Holly's list stuck out:
Eat all the junk food you want if you make it yourself.
Well- that's a challenge if I ever saw one!
Since Jenn and I have been baking more recently and trying to buy less junk, I knew I could count her in. And Phil's a sucker for a nutrition bandwagon, so he was a sure bet.
So, it's time for "no junk unless you made it yourself October". That didn't quite have the right ring to it, so we enlisted the help of facebook, and a helpful friend supplied us with Home Baked Only October, or HoBOO for short (that's right, the kids can call you HoBOO).
This means no candy, no chocolate (except in baking), no chippies, no hot chips, no bought biscuits, cakes, or icecream, well- basically no bought baking.
But to make it a little easier, we can have all the homemade brownies....
chocolate chip cookies...
and molten chocolate marshmallow cakes...
Let the baking begin!
