Made lye pretzels – at home. Took some lye solution (NaOH) with me from work, so now I can have my fingers corroded at home too. And on the side create yummy stuff. It takes a lot of precautions, but it’s worth it. Lye stuff is so delicious. But I do still have a thing or two to learn.
Have to eat the freezer empty, so I can start freezing the pretzels before dipping them. Works a lot better that way, can’t smash them then that easy. Served them of course with asparagus soup, for it’s spring and Germany after all (and I got such a bunch of asparagus with me from work).
I celebrated my birthday too. With Tiuku, had such a party here. Carlos will find the apartment in such a chaos when we return.. Return from Finland, yes! Carlos is there already, I’ll be flying on Wednesday. How lovely, it was becoming too warm here anyway.
Oh, made a rolled cake for me – something little. Decorated it with whipped cream with a hint of rose sugar on the top and filled with German butter-cream and mint-raspberry-jam. What a luxury.
