Bread smells like home

We have been ill the last week with a flu that has left me voiceless, which is an interesting thing with Miss K who now repeats all I say in a whisper.

Here in Berlin, things are truly closed on Sunday except for occasional bakeries, mini-marts and cafes. I enjoy the luxury of a spend-free day. I didn’t have any bread today though, so I thought I’d make some. No sour dough this time; I followed this recipe with the exception of adding two teaspoons of honey as I thought the yeast might need something to grow on.

Miss K loved working the dough, though I made no photos and just enjoyed the moment. The bread is delicious and worked out a lot better than I had expected. I let it rise in a warmed oven for a lot longer than 1 hour.

Miss K definitely preferred the inside, but I didn’t mind as I found the crust the best.

And once we were done we cleaned…

She really did help me with all those dishes, but also spilt some water around. This only meant that some of the other kitchen surfaces also got cleaned…

Sadly, I won’t be going to work tomorrow (I’m really enjoying teaching again). Miss K will be going to her Kindy and I think she will enjoy it – especially as we will be sharing a lantern walk in the evening.
