I can't stop cooking!!!

For some reason I am going potty cooking during this crisis.
I am able to drive out to the shops & doing shopping for more elderly neighbours so I have no lack of ingredients but why I am so baking mad I do not know. We have home made bread, cakes, biscuits, scones etc coming out of our ears & all the freezers are full.
I suspect it is a self survival instinct setting in yet I am not really worried about the situation as I am fit & healthy so would expect to get a mild dose of the lurgy anyway.
Having daily walk & our Yoga teacher is putting classes on line everyday for us to join in so nor bored either.
Maybe it is something to keep me in kitchen as being with DH 24/7 is getting a bit of a trial. I married him for life but NOT for lunch!!

Love the pictures merlotgran, but i can't copy them to share - can anyone tell a technical dunce what she's doing wrong? I highlight them, the R click and click 'copy image' but it ain't working for this one.

Why did I make these? Have given half of one to brother in law but the rest will probably go on my hipsgrin

If you haven’t scoffed the lot cut it into slices, wrap in grease proof or baking paper. Then put it in a large sealable freezer bag slightly Separated if possible and then freeze. That way you can have afternoon tea whenever you fancy. Unfortunately you will have to supply your own butler and tea bags.

Ooh, really fancy cake now! Will have a look and see if I've got enough in the cupboards to make my favourite teabread.

ExD When you right click on the picture do you see an option, 'Save picture as?'

If you click on that, the box should appear where you can name the picture and save it to your photos.
