Mondays I tend to be really productive - I surprise myself sometimes. Yesterday was no exception. I got through a bunch of email and paperwork that needed my attention, washed all the sheets in the house, packaged up orders for the shop, and then decided to make bagels before working in the garden. I've been wanting to make them for some time now. I used the recipe found in artisan bread in five minutes a day; I plan to buy healthy bread in five minutes a day and make the whole grain version next. It took about a minute to mix the dough, then it rises for a couple of hours. After that it took about 30 minutes all told to complete them - 10 minutes or so of shaping and boiling them (very easy, even though it sounds daunting) and then 20 minutes of baking time. I brought them still warm to my boys for an after-school snack, much to their surprise and delight.
Have you tried anything new in your kitchen lately?
