Sponge, proof, fondant.

We’ve been looking for televised content that leaves us, I dunno, less stressed at the end of the day. Even during the week, taking on even an hour of news leaves us with, I dunno a sort of ache for our fellow human beings. We’re keeping touch with events, but we’re trying to not obsess.

So it’s The Great British Baking Show, which is the PBS/Netflix rename of The Great British Bake Off. (Why did they change the name? I really don’t know.) We’ve just finished watching a season from 2012. So, the original hosts, and fabled judge Mary Berry along with Paul Hollywood.

Ahh. No politics. No pandemic. Quaint! For an hour at a time, at least.
