For me bread is not so much about the recipe, I can find great bread recipes all over the place, it’s more about having the time and patience to try and do it right. I sometimes fail terribly at the patience part.
Pumpkin Cardamom Spice Challah
Basic White Bread
First time with this recipe and I hadn’t baked bread in a long while. In the end it was a great tasting bread it was a bit dense and had a great crust. I don’t care for dense bread so I cut the loaf into thick slices and let them dry out overnight. I made a coconut milk French toast with them the next morning.
I was about to enter my apartment when I heard a tiny defeated tweet from what looked like a scrap of dried leaf. Upon closer inspection it was an Anna’s Hummingbird that had gotten trapped in the stairwell and become exhausted. I offered it some sugar water and carried it to safety.
This morning I planted some ginger and put it next to my Aerogarden for light. Then trimmed back my lemon balm & chamomile and planted those this morning.
I started cilantro, dill and basil in the aerogarden.
Trimmings from the lemon balm and lemon slices are steeping in cold water for later. I baked some bread and some bran muffins.
I tried a new park I haven’t been to yet. It’s a bit of a walk to get to but worth it, at least up until spider season arrives.
I’ve been working on some soap recipes, I have a loofah I want to experiment with and also I was gifted a wire coat hanger for some experimentation with hanger swirls. I’m having some trouble deciding. I know scent wise it’s either going to be Vanilla with Espresso, Ginger Patchouli or Valencia Orange.
