Baking with Esmarelda & Jenny - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus Week 106

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Saturday Centus, Mrs. Jenny Matlock's weekly writing challenge that requests participants to write their own text to a given prompt, using only 100 words or less plus the five words of the prompt. 
Cream together butter and sugar...

Here is my text:
Esmarelda and Jenny were thumbing through the latest edition of Sju sorters kakor (Swedish Cakes and Cookies), when Jenny squeeled, 'I know, we could bake our way through these recipes, and blog about it!'

'Been done', replied Esmarelda, 'Remember the movie, Julie & Julia? And Sju sorters kakor is even translated as Swedish Cakes and Cookies, so we can't even do that.'

'Oh well', sighed Jenny, 'it says here "Cream together butter and sugar..." Let's just bake this this and forget about the publishing business...'

'Yeah, I'm with you!'
Word Count: 92 +5 = 97


 Best wishes,

I just sent you an e-mail telling you I couldn't leave a comment and now your blog is giving me permission!

At the risk of repeating myself, I hope you're feeling better and I wanted you to know I think your micro-fiction is stellar.

You have a way of taking us in a direction we hadn't planned on going...

...and loving the journey every word of the way.
