Dear Family & Friends
It's been my dream to see Sweet Peas in our garden...but our Bulgarian climate is probably is a bit too warm and dry...because the first year I planted it, it grew yet never flowered...but I don't give up easily...I planted them once again this year, although they are not very willing to be showy, yet they flowered... I know I will grow them again next year and I'm positive it will be better each year.
Sweet Peas are lovely to behold...but I must let you know that I have two real 'sweet peas', who are blooming to be lovely ladies...my two girls. I just can't help but appreciate them because when I am so busy with my gardening activities... they take over the kitchen for me.
Our bread machine of almost ten years finally gave up on us, it has been so well used in our household...but for the meantime, my husband passed on the daily bread recipe to our big girl which she uses to make the daily bread by hand till a new machine arrives... the dough can easily turn into buns and pizza. This is her inherited recipe:
2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
400 ml warm water
Put everything in a bowl.
Then add, 6 cups of bread flour
1 tsp of instant yeast
Mix all together and knead till smooth. Leave to rest inside the bowl - covered. When it has doubled in size, punch it down...knead a few minutes and shape them up for your use i.e. either in form of a bun (with or without fillings, bread loaf style, or pizza with all sorts of toppings:)
The winner takes it all....(as sang by ABBA)...but NOT!
