Feel like I’ve been baking and cooking all week long. Got two boxes of fruits and veggies from work inside a week. That’s a lot of cauliflower, and apples just keep gathering up, too. And freezer and fridge are full. Had another meat doughnut baking day. And made my favorites, Spritzkuchen, at the same. They are fried choux pastry with powder sugar icing. Super yummy, love them. So nice bubbly structure. And my homemade ones worked out splendid, given that I’m not a choux pastry master. This time only problem was not having a big enough star nozzle for my piping bag, so had to make them with a plain one. Made cookies from excess dough I grabbed with me from work. Something was still left for a picture.
Hoping to manage a bread tomorrow, don’t wanna leave my yeast crying in the fridge. I mean, all this crazy cooking does have a purpose, right? Carlos needs to survive while I’m off to Finland. From the reserve I’ve prepared one could assume me staying for long. Well, knowing that he’ll be four days alone in the deathly cold of Germany (we’ve even had up-to -2°C, c’mon!), has surely inspired me for running my own little restaurant here.
Now I’m just inspired to sleep. Feels like the last hours of something proper, next time I’ll be truly snoring at my sisters couch.
’till I’ve gone there and back again, Marika~
