Hope you are all having a happy holiday!! Like I said yesterday, I know this day can be packed with all the feels so I hope it’s an o.k. day for you. I am making the World’s Best Dinner Rolls this morning and I already burned out my mixer, yay me! That sucker was smoking like a crackhead!! I unplugged it and put it in the trash (once it was done with its smoke). There’s something about baking bread that I just love. The rising dough is like a warm baby’s butt, I don’t know what to say about punching it down. I don’t associate that with punching a baby’s butt. I’m not that mean. Who would punch a baby?!?! Anyway I digress. My family loves my homemade rolls and it’s going to be a true feat to make them in this postage stamp of a kitchen I have.
Yesterday I started watching Stranger Things on Netflix, I wouldn’t say it’s addictive or anything, I only watched seven episodes. I could have kept on going through the whole two series I think but I had to go to bed so I could get up and make bread! I am tempted to turn it on now while the bread rises but I might get so involved that I neglect my bread-making duties and then I’ll miss Thanksgiving and my family would be pissed as hell. You have to have yeast rolls with your Thanksgiving meal. It’s like, a rule.
I also started reading the book Lab Girl for my book club, that’s something I can do with the time I have while the bread rises. I could clean my house but fuck no. I’m going to wait until the dust is swirling around in little dust-devils and I can’t see the back wall. Give it a little drama. It’s hard to work up the motivation to clean. Maybe if I had a visitor here I would clean. This apartment is my dirty little secret.
Well people hope you have a great day. Let me know your plans and how you’re doing in the comments. I love hearing from you! Peach out!
