Baking and Cleaning
In December, I unpacked the Bosch mixer and started putting it to good use. I use it several times a week making bread, dinner rolls, hamburger buns, hot dog buns and scones. I know what you are thinking......no way!! I used to occasionally bake from scratch and now it is a necessity. Honestly, it has been fun. One of my friends here makes Martha Stewart look like an amateur. She is an awesome baker and cook. She gave me some tips and some of her high altitude recipies and they are great. The other pictures are of veggies and fruits bought on the local market. They are drying out from all the "cleaning prep" that needs to be done. However, it is worth it! The fruits and veggies are delicious. Fresh mangos, papayas, plums, oranges, strawberries and sweet melon. the lettuce is out of our very own garden. Yummy!!
