Happy New Year!

Posted by admin on December 31st, 2009 filed in Bakery!, Food, General, Holidays

Last year I made a cinnamon pretzel for good luck.  I don’t think 2009 was such a lucky year for me.  If the pretzel did bring me good luck, I would really hate to see what the year would have been like without it.  This year I tried a different kind of pretzel, one filled with pepperoni.  Here is it:

Mmmmm.  Burst-open pretzel.

I did this one completely by hand, no bread machine this time.  It’s a yeast dough, so I got to use my timer/thermometer and probe to make sure it was warm enough to activate the yeast (thanks Ron and Stacey!) and I had to knead the dough for a while.  Beren helped me place the pepperoni.  It was delicious.

    It was delicious. Actually we still have a lot left over. I know it would give me heartburn, otherwise I would go eat some more of it before bed.

    We ate a ton of nachos with cheese and salsa at 1:00 AM New Year’s eve (since we each still had half a beer!) and ho boy did it give me heartburn. Why must nachos be exponentially more and more delicious in relation to the inappropriateness of the time?

    ops! I didn’t mean to dangle cheese in your face. Sorry! And now I have reminded you of it again. What a lousy friend!

    *sigh* I haven’t had cheese since last year!

    You’re a great friend! Tell me how the cheese tasted. Was it good? Use adjectives!
