Baking Day


Post by community member:

For some reason, I woke up today and just had to bake something. So while enjoying my first cup of coffee outside in the cool air, I decided that since we are having spaghetti tonight for dinner I wanted to make some bread.

I gathered all of my ingredients for the bread and then I thought “I want French bread instead of Italian”. Yes, I know, it should have been Italian bread since it is spaghetti night, but I had a craving for French bread, so French it is, or is it? Okay, I had another thought, why not add garlic and other seasonings to the french bread, so I did. I added Italian seasonings to the bread mix, so I am making a French style Italian bread — 2 loaves of it! I put everything in the bread machine and set it for dough. I then took it out once it was mixed and kneaded, I have the shaped dough rising in the french loaf bread pans, 2 of them.

Onto my second cup of coffee. While I am drinking it, I am also feeding and watering my parrots, they love to see me and all talk up a storm.

Once I was done with that, I sat down and decided again that I still have the need to bake, so what country will I be doing now? Germany and the good ole USA —

one apple strudel…

and one apple caramel pie coming up !

I guess I really just have the need to travel and since I am not at the moment, I will bring the countries to me.

I have the bread rising, the strudel and the pie in the oven. I have now moved onto to my sweet ice tea and enjoying the smells coming from the kitchen! Garlic, basil, cinnamon, sugar apple, caramel! Too bad this is not a scratch and sniff blog!

Okay so who is there to clean up after my baking craving? Any one? Hello !

P. S. I’ve uploaded my Apple Strudel recipe here!

    I will come clean up all the mess, but I require payment with the products you made. Deal?

    Well Eve, we’re on the same wave length this morning! Riley, the dog and I enjoy our 1st cup of coffee on the porch, too. We’re having spaghetti and meatballs for supper today, so there is a loaf of french bread mixing in my bread machine.
    I don’t think there is a pie coming though….
    I hope the cleaning fairy shows up soon!

    Thank you for all the offers to help with the clean up, it is always nice to have friends. The bread , strudel and pies always go quick, I always have left over spaghetti though. Life is short so eat dessert first, we do when it is as good as it gets!

    I thought am the only one who has baking cravings. Most times I knock off from work and I want to make a loaf of bread and a cake.
    And the cleaning up afterwards is usually tiring!!!!!
