Ta-daahhh! I would like to introduce you to my very first yummy tasting bread!
Now, anyone who knows me and have followed me on TheUndomesticDiva knows that i have never managed to bake bread. It was either inedible, hard as a rock, or raw.
Well, yesterday that all changed when came across a recipe for slow cooked bread!
"What is this wizardry?"
"Slow cooked bread? That can't be right!"
So, i gave it a go. And my goodness did it work! The softest, crumbliest bread you could ever imagine!
I know it looks a bit pale, but you can brown it under the grill if you like
(i didn't want to, as i don't like hard crusts)
At the moment, we only have a mini oven, so i think that's partly why my recent bread hasn't worked (no idea why it didn't work in my old oven either mind you, but oh well!)
I think i might make some soup later, to complement it ;)
In other happy news, i found this adorable wee chicken salt shaker in a charity shop for 50p!
The little eggshell bit at the bottom separates too, i was hoping to use it as an egg cup but it's a bit too wide :( maybe it is supposed to be for sauces, or dip? Hmmm...
My herbs are doing nicely, the parsley seems to have suddenly taken over the pot! And to think i was worried it wouldn't grow! I've started to put them outside to harden off before i transplant them later in the week. I need the pots back! haha :)
My carrot seeds seem to be making no progress whatsoever :( Not even a single tiny sprout from any of the seeds :( which is why i want the pots back so i can try again and use those instead of egg cartons.
As i type this, i have just seen a very large Jackdaw making eyes at my herbs outside!
Gerroff!! They're mine!
I also made some lovely cozy slippers :) Though looking at this picture they seem a bit short at the back.
What are you doing today? :)
