Welcome in, there’s some really good, strong coffee, and a variety of teas to choose from today. I baked some rye ciabattas this morning, that turned out really great, if I may say so. Feel free to help yourself to some. I think there is a lot of satisfaction in baking your own bread; from watching the dough rise, to the wonderful scent that takes over the house when you bake it in the oven, to enjoying fresh bread and knowing every single ingredient in it. I love it! I bake bread every weekend, and often once or twice during the week. There’s cheese and alfalfa sprouts in the fridge that goes great with the ciabattas, if you are a little hungry. If you are more than a little hungry I made some lentil soup as well, (there is a lot of garlic in it.)
How are you doing? How is your week?
It’s been a fabulous week here, a busy and fun work week, and now it’s a fabulous Saturday. It’s windy and it’s raining outside. I’ve been baking the ciabattas, got some laundry done, cleaned a little, made a budget for next month, and enjoyed a good book by the fire so far today. I am reading “Last night in Twisted River” by John Irving. It’s a long book, more than 500 pages, and I started reading it last weekend. A book rarely lasts that long for me, but this is some good writing that requires more attention than being enjoyed during my bus ride to work. Are you reading something at the moment?
Maybe you remember that I was talking about going on a picnic with my daughter last weekend? This is where we went.
Thank you for having coffee with me today, feel free to take a refill before you leave 🙂 Have a great weekend!
