The weekend was nice and
Another success. The aftermath of morning tea. Those remaining cakes didn't even make it to afternoon tea as I had planned.
We had a bit of a hankering for burgers and nothing say burger bun more than a deliciously soft roll. This was something I thought I could manage and headed back to the internet for inspiration. (It is amazing how much I am relying on the it as all of my cookbooks are locked up in another country.)
I settled on this recipe and got to work midmorning. I kept thinking, "Give me another week and I am sure there is some sourdough version I could be making."
Don't they just look so soft and burger-like.
The recipe was wonderful and I even measured each of them out so that they would all be the same size.
I was doing really well until I got a little distracted Skyping and these ended up a little on the darker side. Whoops. They still had a great taste and were a hit with the burgers.
What does 4 euros (A$5.50) get you these days? Not much, I hear you say. What about this!
All of these little babies came home with me this today after my Tuesday afternoon trip to the market. Most are already in the freezer ready for the days when berries are out of season yet we are all still craving smoothies.
I think I will need to start stockpiling.
An easy pasta dinner was the call for today, mainly as most of the ingredients were already in the apartment. I spied these cherry tomatoes at the Bio stall and knew that these needed to become past of the sauce. Their sweet flavour added a real zing.
The first sourdough loaf has just emerged from the oven but there won't be any photos. I think a little more work is needed. Is smells great, but aesthetically ...?
PS Brenna, thanks for the award. I am still working on my 5.
