I made the Hokkaido milk loaf. It´s really delicious. Sweet, but not too sweet. It didn´t grow much, maybe cause I kinda mixed the yeast with the salt. I used half of the recipe just in case it didn´t turn out fine. But it did!
I also made swiss rolls. I was going to do the baps we make every week but then there was the recipe in the flour package and I thought: let´s give it a try!…. Result: delicious too!!! So tempting and soft and the smell mmmm….
Hey I´m gonna stop making sweets and buns for a while, since they tempt me much more than my boyfriend and I end up eating what I shouldn´t, and since my family is away I can´t give them anything either L………….What a shame!!! I enjoy so much making them although it was only for giving it as presents.
Sometimes I think if we lived many many years ago I could bake all this stuff and sell it in the streets just as the muffin man did. J…. I truly love these old stories! Wouldn´t you like sometimes to step back in time? I would!!! Even though today we have many freedom and comodities, on the other hand all are rules, rules, rules, and you have to pay even just for breathing! So then, we´re not that free as it seems.
Yesterday we made a little trip to the shops. We were looking for some stuff for the new baby to come ( from my boyfriend´s sis) + some stuff for my sisters´little girl…We didn´t find what we were looking for, just some clothes for my nephew, but I also wanted to buy her some toy, but I didn´t like what there was in the shops. In the end I found a kewl thermo, with capacity for 550 ml. I fell in love with it, so funnyly decorated ¡! I showed it to my boyfriend and then left it on the shelf again. But then I remembered I wanted to buy one of those thermos for making my own yogurt… and that one was perfect!! Cause it was not too big but had the capacity for 4 yogurts… so that was perfect for our kitchen….. Then I also saw these lil´ bowls… I saw some in those shops that sell everything but they never fit with their lids, so I never bought them. Small bowls are not easy to find so I bought this little set of 4 bowls ( also from the baby´s shop ), perfect for storing yogurts, lemoncurd, custards etc…yippie!!
My boyfriend was looking for those things you put in the baby´ s cradle, arghhh I don´t know the english name for that!! Sozzz , well the thing is that all we saw was not very great, they were ugly in fact!! So in the end he bought some basket for the swimming pool we have in a field my family owns.
