It was rather rainy today. I like the rain sometimes, if it doesn't complicate my life. Even though it makes the temperature a bit cooler the humidity is still high. By the time I walk anywhere outside I'm working up a nice sweat as usual. I didn't grab my umbrella when I walked home for lunch thinking I made a wise decision based on cloud formation. A few minutes on my way home the rain starts to drizzle and is eventually raining pretty heavily. I didn't bother to try to save myself and got soaking wet. I just changed all the clothes after lunch and was fine. It was kind of a long afternoon and I was uncomfortable at my desk. So freeing to get home and relax.
As I didn't have much else to do other than sit on the computer. I thought I would take a stab at making pretzels. I had been thinking about it for a while and seemed like it would be a very delicious endeavor regardless of the end result. Cooked dough in an oven no matter how bland or.... I was going to say overcooked but I take that back. I DON'T like overcooked bread. From raw soupy dough to cooked perfection is all right.
Without too many mundane details just take a look at my picture and wish you were eating these. Not bad for the first time.
Quick simple dough, short boil, bake in the oven, let cool. Tasty pretzels in a land that pretzels don't show up in. I feel satisfied. So what is next? Cheesecake?
