One of the areas I feel "stuck" in is writing. The ideas are flowing and I'm ready to write, but I feel stuck because I've decided not to start until July with Camp Nanowrimo. I've been busy organizing events and fun nights for the writing group I help moderate online, but I still feel stuck. I'm not sure why.
On a lighter, happier note, I retried my Spaghetti Zest recipe tonight. I'm happy to report that it was just as good on a second try!
A little while later, I found myself hungry again. (Which is a plus - a few weeks ago, I found I barely had any appetite most days. Stress and life changes will do that to a girl.) So, I set out to find a recipe I could make using items I already had. I found a recipe on Pinterest, of course and set out for my newly straightened kitchen.
I pulled up the recipe and set to work on it. The recipe I decided on was for homemade soft pretzels. Naturally, the recipe called for the use of yeast and kneading of dough. I'm still learning how to best to do this, so I was a little leery of this recipe. I started by getting out all of the ingredients. This seemed like the best way to start.
I followed the recipe and eventually got to the step of making the pretzels. The dough seemed to be going just right - not too sticky. Last time I used homemade dough, I found it to be too sticky.
A view of the mess in my kitchen. I was a bigger mess seeing how I forgot to put my apron on!
My only complaint with the recipe? I ended up with too much food for just one person!!
Anyone want a pretzel? I have plenty!
