It is finally here! Yipeeeeee!
What is finally here you ask? Half yearly break!! My brain is fried, my body is exhausted and I am ready for rejuvenation.
Weeelll, not quite. I feel like I've got a little left in the noggin for some Thinking Out Loud Thursday! Thanks as always to the wonderful Spoons for hosting this awesome weekly link-up where the ramblings of the bloggers can be read by other bloggers and people to determine your sanity (or lack thereof ;)
What an interesting intro Steph, pat on the back for you! (I really need a holiday, huh?)
1. The last time I went to the bread shop I got two big bags of spelt bread flour, one spelt/ rye mix (that I've loved before- it's the usual) and one wholemeal spelt mix that I hadn't ever tried before. After a few weeks of my beloved spelt/ rye, I inevitably ran out and moved on to the new spelt mix.
3 hours later and....
I was left with a teeny little heavy rock.
It hadn't risen at all and was literally a solid block of rock hard... flour.
First thought was the yeast. I hadn't bought fresh yeast in a while, so maybe the one I was using is losing it's yeasty-powers.
New yeast + bread mix =
Little rock of unhappiness.
Ok, not the yeast. I also ruled out the water and oil. Bread mix, I'm looking at you.
So I purchased another bread mix (a seeded spelt mix) and voila!
And just check out that fluffy seedy goodness:
2. Because, on that note, the bigger the sandwich the more stuff you can fill it with!
4. I also am back in a stage where I want all the veggies. Ever.
4. Completely random ending comment:
So that's what has been traveling around my head for the past week. Your welcome.
Do you bake your own bread? What type do you bake? It is time consuming but I feel like nothing compares to freshly baked bread!
Are you a fan of raw sandwiches (couldn't think of a better word) or toasted sandwiches? I think I lean more towards the toasted- the flavour!
Ever tried a papple (pear/ apple)?
If you want to check out what everyone else is thinking about this Thursday, head on over to Spoons!
Have yourself a brilliant day, do something you love and enjoy the little things- so often we simply let them fly past without acknowledging them! Bye for now friends! :D
