Messed Up Bread

I had a pretty good weekend. I’ve been wrestling with a cold, but today I feel somewhat better. And I’m relieved. I hope that things continue to improve...
Anyway, I decided to forget about my cold and make some chaos in the kitchen this weekend. And that’s what I’d call it, especially when I saw the finished product. LOL. Brace yourselves for this....here it is!



I know you may be wondering...what the heck is that!!?? Well it is supposed to be bread. It’s called 21st Century bread and it’s supposed to be sort of unformed and rustic looking. But it turned out looking really tore up! LOL. However, I tasted a chunk today and it doesn’t taste that bad after sitting overnight. I’m gonna have to tweak my technique though, so that next time my bread is more edible like the one on the cooking show ;-) I saw the recipe on a television show here, but when I went to the website to get the recipe, they didn’t have it listed. So I googled it and found it listed on a blog. I’m going to have to check the measurements again because something went wrong.

It’s bread that has cheese and chives in it. In the original recipe, the cook had ham in it too, but I didn’t have any ham. I think that if I get the recipe to work out right, it will be very tasty. It looked delicious when it was presented on the show.

The reason that I’m posting my not so successful attempt is to be truthful and to out my own cooking... the mess ups make me laugh! As I’ve mentioned here before, I want to share the good, the bad, and the ugly of my cooking on this blog. So here it is...ain’t it pretty?!! LOL. Better luck next time.

It's been months since my brother-in-law received the spirit of a deceased baker. Every week he tries to make a perfect bread. Then one day, he was surprised because my sister made ​​her first bread and it was great! Even the maid can make one tastier. But the "chef" is he .... kkkk

I hope, dear friend and great cook, I wish you gets better soon of the cold.

PS: pelase you do not have to worry about sending me a bread made for you by mail, the postman can smell it, enjoy and stay with it .... rsss


KISSES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interesting... I've cooked things that turned out way worse than that, so I wouldn't worry about it. Besides, it's the taste that matters.

Dee,
So true...taste is what matters. And it turned out not terrible. I'm gonna give it another try though. I think something went wrong with the measurements. I love a challenge! :) Thanks so much for visiting me and commenting.
