Black Forest Scrolls

Isn't it annoying? I kept thinking about black forest when I was studying about domain forests for my System Administration exam last week.

So, yeah. I'll bake some for my afternoon tea.

LOL, I am glad I am done with school, though I want to go back to study something else, but at least for now I don't have to worry about exam!

Your scrolls look really scrumptious. Perfect for weekend breakfast.
