Home-made bagels for the first time ever! Next time I won't bake them as long as I did. I was afraid they might not get done, so I left them in for a few minutes longer than the recipe directed and they came out a little too brown. Oops. Live and learn. Also I might try making the bagels a smidge bit smaller. But they were really very easy to make and I have a bunch of ideas for different types of bagels next time. I'd like to try a whole grain bagel for sure. Maybe something with oats and honey in it. Oh the possibilities! I used this recipe. They even show a short video on how to form the bagels, which was quite helpful.
The book I'm flipping through is a Christmas present from my grandma! It's one of the Japanese Craft Books that many of us obsess over. This one is Natural Material Clothes Pt. 2. Lots of great ideas in that book. They even have a pattern for leather sandals! I'm itching to make them for the summer. Perhaps I will document how I make them on here whenever I get around to that.
Listening to Alela Diane. Watch this beautiful video! More of her lovely music here.
