April was a Rey busy month as I signed up for a four week bread baking class and a couple cooking class on the weekends. Each weekend was jam packed with activities as I attended class and we took the kids out to parks and shopping as their dad is home this month.
Here is a recap of the highlights of the month.
#1- Eggs Benedict with hollandaise sauce from our couple cooking class.
#2- Bread baking is really different from cake making. It really takes much more effort and time as compared to making a cake. It can take between three and eight hours just to develop the dough before proofing, shaping it and getting it into the oven. A cake on the other hand only takes me the most two hours to bake and another one to two hours to decorate depending on the difficulty of the 3d design that was chosen. Cookies are the easiest to make as it only takes me about an hour max to shape and bake.
#3- We had a peak into the car when I listed the 10 things I have in my car. What do you have in your car?
#4- Do you have an Ultimate Favourite? My oven is mine!! It was my birthday present last year and I have been putting it to good use baking and grilling food for the kids.
#5- I wrote about one of the most important promises which I had made and am still keeping- The Vow
#6 – We are big on healthy eating and getting the kids to eat right. Food is one of my passions and my kids share this passion too.
#7- I read a few books but the most interesting one was Test Success as it gave me an inside to on how to analyze how my kids handle being in a Test situation and I was given the tools to teach them how to cope effectively.
#8- I had a Daddy guest post on Dominique’s Desk this month. He wrote a really funny piece of how he was coping with his kids while cooking turkey. Check out- This Capon is Cooked- So’s is my goose
#9- I’ve celebrated my 2K fan appreciation giveaway and it is still on till the 5th of May.
I’m really glad to have many new followers and readers here on Dominique’s Desk
#10- After having my weight stagnant for a few months I managed to lose another 1.5kg and am currently 5kg away from my goal weight.
