I had intended sewing(working) today, but ended up starting the husband off with the bread making. We started making our own a few weeks ago and after a couple of bad results we have been experimenting. One of those results was after finding our bread machine was dead! We had been using it on just the dough setting and then putting it in the tin ourselves to bake.
If any of you have ever made bread from scratch, you'll know that it takes a good deal of kneading.
So while we were getting him set up, I started thinking that maybe I'd have a go at making some no-knead bread. I used to make it years ago, but seem to remember the husband not being too keen on it for reasons unknown now.
Good thing we both like bread, cos we were going to have a bit to chomp our ways through. Even if he didn't like it I'd still have my own to myself!
For reasons known only to the Universe, I gave away/got rid of(?) a second big black bread tin, so.......his loaf is the one on the right and mine was done in a large loaf tin (loaf in the middle), and I made the rest of my dough up as small rolls in a ring tin.
Now of course he says that the no-knead tastes rather nice. Ya think darl!? :) So I guess we'll be taking the easy way out with our bread in the future. Yay for no-knead is all I can say! Lol.
Have no idea what got into me but in between helping him with his loaf and getting my bread done, I whipped up (always wanted to say that in relation to something I'd made!!) a batch of Anzac cookies.
I did manage to squeeze in very quick (well almost) creative space to finish off this collage. I started it a few weeks ago as one of the little private challenges that Joolz, Laura and I throw at ourselves now and then. I got it all done except the very middle piece that just seemed to "happen", and I haven't been able to decide what was needed there. I've placed a piece of the watercolour paper that we used to mount them on, over this area cos I forgot to take a before pic! Oops.
In the end I decided to go with simple, and drew a fancy black line and glued two teeny pearl beads on it. Hopefully it suits? I suppose, as I'll be keeping it for myself cos I just loved the look of it overall, it will do for now.
Sorry hadn't meant to do such a long post for this.
