Just Like You, We are in Cook-What-You-Have-in-the -Cupboard Mode.
In the Far Reaches of the Cabinet, A King Cake was Waiting.
And there is No Better Day than Today to Bake a Yeast Bread that Guarantees Good Health and Happiness for the Year. It’s Not Too Late!
This was our First Attempt at Working with Yeast. Patience is a Requirement. I tried to remember all the Do’s and Don’ts my Mom would zing at me about working with Dough. I tried.
Guess the Proof will be in the Rising and the Tasting.
My Baking Helper and I were so covered in Flour and Dough that No Photos of the Mixing and Kneading and Rolling could be Taken.
Trust Me, it was a Sight to Behold.
But Here we are…6 Hours Later. Kind of Looks like a Flintstone Creation. Not Quite like the Photo on the Box.
Perhaps the Sugar Glaze will help.
Stirred by a Capable Hand.
Decorating with Colored Sugars.
Purple represents Justice. Green is Faith. Gold is Power. The tiny baby is the Baby Jesus, traditionally hidden inside each King Cake.
Hiding the Baby.
We have Enough to Share with the Neighbors. This Thing is Huge!
Another Meal Worthy of the Butler’s Pantry. My Kind of Camping. 🙂
Spicy Chicken with the infamous Green Beans. A Hit. Go Figure.
We even had a Virtual Dinner Guest.
Stay Safe. Stay Strong. Stay Well.
We’ve Got This! Together.
