Sorry I'm late today; I haven't been pre-writing these like I usually do, and and that means late posts!
Here's what I finished this week:
3. Pizza braid.
|I had to cut it open to see if it was done inside.|
This was really yummy and beautiful, but also felt a bit wasteful. I could get a lot more pizza if I just rolled it out and left it, instead of folding it up and braiding it. However, we both really liked it, especially Caleb. :)
4. Make biscotti.
I used this recipe, which has a picture of chocolate chip biscotti, but it's actually double chocolate chip biscotti. And no, I didn't use all Fair Trade or Organic ingredients because I'm poor. I had made this for an event we were having at our house over a two-day period. This was going to be the treat for the 2nd day, but then no one could come that day, so instead, I brought it to my mom's birthday party, where it was well loved!
Many moons ago, I bought a ton of t-shirts at Salvation Army for a scarf project. I still have some scraps, plus my sister has scraps from the rag rug she made for me, and that's what I used. It took a long time, but I think it's worth it. It's not really the right size for my lamp, but it'll work until I find a lamp it does fit. And it's much cuter when the lamp isn't on. :)
45. Homemade soft pretzels.
These are amazing, but eat them fresh. The next day they weren't quite as good. It's a rather involved process, but very very worth it. Instead of making 8 giant ones as the recipe suggested, I split the dough further and made tiny and medium ones. I think I got about 24 pretzels of varying sizes. There was a little learning curve to shaping the pretzels (can you guess which pan I started with?) but even funny shaped ones taste delicious! Here are the pretzels before I baked them:
