To tell you the truth, I love to bake breads. I just love the smell of the yeast and the dough when it’s rising and the smell of the bread when it’s cooking in the oven, just heavenly. And there’ll be times, when I really really want to make bread hari2 :-). But, kalau I buat hari2, takde sape yang nak makan sebab we’ll be so sick of eating it hari hari (but makan toast hari2 for breakfast, tak jemu pulak orang2 kat rumah ni, heran kan!).
And today was one of those days when my baking bread mood datang. Sebelum operasi kemas rumah dimulakan pagi tadi, I put all the ingredients into my trusty breadmaker and let it do the hard work while I did the other hard work of cleaning the house. By the time I dah siap cuci bilik mandi and toilets and vacuumed and dusted the whole house and cleaned and mopped the kitchen (with the help of The Little Misses and The Other Half of course), the breadmaker pun dah sudah his job of menguli and menaikkan the dough.
And this was what I made from the sweet dough, cream horns and walnut scrolls. I cuma dapat buat 6 biji cream horns aje sebab I cuma ada 6 biji acuan nya aje, hehehe. I used whipped cream for the filling. The Little Misses and The Other Half were so impressed with the shape of the bread, hahahaha…..
Miss 10 decorated it with choc rice so nampak lagi menyelerakan lah for the girls :-).
The walnut scrolls. We had these bread for dessert after lunch, hehehe…
And our dinner tonite. Yes…. the sausages and the potatoes were cooked on the BBQ, tu sebab lain aje rupa nya. The Other Half masih tak bosan lagi main dengan his new toy tu, biar aje lah kan. Senang sikit kerja I tadi, boleh bergayut on the phone whilst he cooked :-)….
On a completely different matter……
Salah ke kalau kita takde sekelumit pun perasaan sayang for someone who’s your own flesh and blood? It didn’t start that way but the feelings just gradually disappear/terhakis over time after years of lying and disappointments and heart aches. People say kalau benci tu tandanya sayang and ada lah jugak perasaan for that person kan. But, bukan saje perasaan sayang, benci pun takde. Yang ada cuma this ‘I honestly don’t care anymore’ feeling. It’s such an unhealthy environment to be in the same room as this person because of all the lies behind the smiles and all the manipulative behaviours……. People say forgive and forget but it’s a bit too late for that…..
