They have a saying at the post office regarding rain, snow or shine and delivery! I just got through a 7 day black out in NYC, perhaps you heard of it? Well, while protecting my digs I decided to counter depression and sweltering heat and do what else.....? Bake of course!
I am going to Europe so I decided to think of those things which I craved, like curry wurst and brotchen like when I was a soldier for Uncle Sam stationed in Germany some 20 + years ago, tI remembered shincken und butter brezeln (buttered pretzel and ham!) of course I was missing the whole tour de France so I baked a Bordelaise loaf!
The things we can do when in dire conditions!
