Bread

on January 19, 2006

Today I made an experimental loaf. I bought several kumara this week because I like it – but Daniel doesn’t so I’m the only one eating it. So I thought today I would make bread with it. I figured it would replace banana in banana bread. First I thought I’d microwave it and then mash it up like you’d mash the banana, then I decided it’d be easier just to grate it directly. Of course then the mixture was less runny than it should have been so I added a bit more oil and a quarter of an avocado, mashed up. Left the sugar out and baked it for 45 minutes…
well it’s come out pretty good actually. A bit too cakey and not bready enough perhaps, and there’s definitely too much kumara in, it tastes much like a large piece of mashed potato. Next time only one kumara instead of two, and I might ditch the egg too.

Things I’m thankful for today:
I had grapefruit and chocolate cake for breakfast. 🙂
Froglet is being very good.
Sunshine! (after several days of snow and rain)

Speaking of Froglet, he has discovered his feet. Yesterday he grabbed one of them, pulled it up to his mouth and actually got his toe in before realising that someone was trying to eat his foot and withdrawing it quickly. It was funny. We got a bit on video later on, where he was pulling his foot towards his mouth, and holding his mouth wide open as if to encourage the foot to approach. It really made us laugh. Mind you it doesn’t take much to make us laugh, we must be tired. At the weekend we sang “Old MacDonald had a farm” to the baby, replacing the words “farm” with “glass”, and “[animal]” with “beer”, and the sound the animal made with “Leffe” (that’s a very good Belgian beer for those who don’t know). With a Leffe-Leffe here and a Leffe-Leffe there – here a Leffe, there a Leffe, everywhere a Leffe, Leffe… we giggled quite a bit. And no, we hadn’t drunk any alcohol at all!

Froglet is lying on his side on his mat, staring at the bookcase and diligently sucking his thumb so I suppose I should check if he wants the rest of his milk now. He doesn’t seem to mind being left over there as long as there’s some music on for him to listen to.
