the kindness of neighbours
kiddy documentary type DVD about the NASA space programme. The boys were especially impressed with the zero gravity food play that went on. When he returned the DVD later that day (still in his pj's) he came back with three delicious hot pretzels which we ate for afternoon tea. They were amazing. I've made bread before but never with that yummy European style crustiness on the outside. So in the wee hours of this morning (around 5am) I thought now that I'm up (with the sick 4yr old), I may as well pop some dough into the bread maker and give it a try. Sadly my electronic scales are not working properly and so I guessed the amount of flour. Not a good idea... I think I put in about seven cups and it needed five. We still made them but next time maybe they'll be worth blogging about.
