April has been a month of changes for us. For once I am having time to learn something which I have been thinking about for a while- Bread. I just attended my 2nd lesson yesterday and we were on to making Ciabatta bread and another soft bread which tasted absolutely divine dipped with olive oil and vinegar. I’ll be posting pictures of my bakes later on in the week as I have yet to download them from my phone.
Next week we will be moving onto sourdough and I’m to cultivate my own sourdough at home to be use at the class. It will be the first time that I am growing bacteria at home and I’m looking forward to seeing how it will turn out. The kids will be able to eat more healthy now that I’m onto baking breads besides cakes and other dishes. ( We can cut down eating out and cut down the amount of money spent on buying bread)
Tomorrow starts the 1st day of the school run. I’ve decided to stop Doggie boy’s school bus and send him to school directly instead. No doubt it will take about an hour or more doing the morning car run but it certainly beats having to fork out a hefty $180/mth(an increase again of $20) just for him to take the bus to school. The bus doesn’t come at a regular time even though there is given time and sometimes we end up wasting an hour just waiting for the bus to arrive. It really spoils my normal routine and precious time that I have to get everything done in the morning before fixing lunch. Now that he is no longer taking the bus I will have better control of the time and can use it more efficiently.
What changes are you making this month?
