Like a domesticated goddess, I tend to bake when I'm stressed. Back in highschool, I often made brownies. Wonderful gooey chocolatey goodness.
Then, when I moved into the hostel for uni, I baked once a semester, usually when its near the finals. And true to that, today, I tried my hand at two things I never did before.
. Sausage rolls.
Yes, its nothing compared to anything with CHOCOLATE but I love love love bagels (in fact, any plain tasting baked goods) and here in Malaysia, its very very very hard to find them. So when I came across a recipe, I told myself, I'll bake it.
It took me about two hours to:
-Defrost the pastry for the sausage rolls (Not really baking, but still)
-Make the dough for the bagles
-Grill some burgers for the brother's lunch
-Make gravy for leftovers mash potatoes
-Roll the pastry in an ugly fashion around the sausages
-Pop them into the oven
-Form the bagles into an ugly shape, only one came out nicely. I got one in a pretzel form.
-Pop those into the oven
-Clean up the mess
-Get a compliment from the brother on the sausage rolls with him asking me if I can make it for his school's Carnival Day.
-Asked by the brother why are the bagles so plain tasting.
Whew. I think after the finals, I'll be baking something chocolate. Or make the fake cheesecake. Its wonderfulllly goood.
Now, time to clean up more mess.
Coming up, a story that Mozart thinks is too morbid.
