Today was so beautiful that I let the kids play outside this morning while I baked. I finally bought the ingredients for Ezekiel bread at a Mennonite grocery store on the way to the mountains and made it this morning. (I made it in a cake shape to try and fool the kids that it was a treat instead of bread.)
I also had several rotten bananas waiting in the fridge that got turned into banana bread.
My kids love boiled eggs and I continually get frustrated that the shells often sticks to them when I boil them. While I've tried all sort of suggestions to prevent it, I read that it really comes down to how old the cheap eggs are before they hit the store. Anyway, I bought these "eggies" that you crack the eggs into and boil them. Lets just say, they don't get a great review from me. First of all, they have four parts each that you have to assemble and oil, then a few broke open in the boiling water.
Lastly, the eggs come out kind of half egg shaped. I only bought one set of six to try them out and I'm glad I didn't buy another few sets like I really would have needed to use this method. After two batches of eggies, I tried heavily salting the water with straight eggs.
My baking break was fun, - too bad we didn't end up with any dinners from my time, so now I have to make dinner.
