German Brotchen

The cooking group got together and our recipe this time was German Brotchen.  We had two recipes so we ended up making them both and taste testing them.

One of the recipes had you make a well in the center of the flour and add the yeast mixture to the well.  Cover it and leave it alone for 15 minutes.  It looks like a science experiment when you uncover it.  

Look at that yeast go.  It was awesome.

This dough has been mixed and kneaded and is ready to start it's first rise.

 

 Isn't it beautiful?  Almost as beautiful as these brotchen.

We sampled them with ham, swiss cheese, and mustard.  And then I had them again for dinner, and lunch the next day.  The recipe that won the bake off was a little more complicated, but totally worth it.

Blooming

 

 

My hellebores are blooming.  They live under the birch trees.

David worked hard and got all the dead leaves trimmed off.

 It's taken quite a while for them to get this big.  Three years if anyone is counting.  They started out as tiny little two or three leaf plants.  Aren't they lovely now?

Qiviut Cowl

A long time ago when we went to Alaska, I picked up a skein of Qiviut yarn.  It is so soft and so lovely and it's going to eventually going to be a cowl.

Specifically, the Jeweled Cowl by knittimo.

 

It's a bit fiddly, but I do have the first row of beads attached. About 50 more repeats to go.

Binding

I'm sewing the binding on Crazy Batik.

 

 This will give me plenty of handwork for the Friday Bee.
