I guess all the Christmas baking I did last weekend satisfied me for a while, for I haven’t come up with anything so massive this week. Got to bake the final muffins for our muffin-project at school. They surely were brightly decorated, but still tasted quite yummy. Guess our guests thought so, too, for they were the first ones to run out. And I had to present them – new challenge keeping a presentation auf Deutsch, short one luckily, but still…
Got a bunch of veggies from work again. Inspired me for pita breads! They are so fast to make and always a success, don’t know why I don’t make them more ofter. Perhaps they are already too simple. Ate some kebab with them. Yup, still have a thing or two to learn about life in Germany if I’m making my own pita kebabs. And this recipe I promise to post, been too long since I posted a recipe, anyway.
Another simple baking was a pumpkin pie. Made the filling into freezer ages ago, and finally had the chance to use it. Recipe called for a flaky pastry, and that is one of those things best bought from store. One day I’ll learn how to make a good one, for we do make it ourselves at the bakery. For now, I’m still too newbie for that. Pie is a bit weird, definitely still eatable. Just think the freezing didn’t do any good for the pumpkin. Fresh would have been better. But it was my first pumpkin pie, after all.
Don’t have any baking ideas for next week yet. We’ll see what will inspire me. At school we’ll start our gingerbread project next. Will learn to make a Lebkuchen-Hexenhaus the German way. Yeah, gingerbread houses are called witch’s houses over here.
