Akemi: I need to get this sweatshirt now that I’m baking bread.
Me: Why?
Akemi: Because it says Bakery.
Me: It actually says Berkley.
Akemi: Berkley? What’s that?
Akemi’s junior garden is coming along nicely!
And her first attempt at bread baking was a rousing success as well.
I was, perhaps, a little overly enthusiastic in my support – and ended up with a bit of a tummy ache last night.
Hey, check it out!  Great deals on cruises!
They say necessity is the mother of invention…
A suit that allows you to safely socialize in times of pandemic…

  1. The garden is really going well! And the bread looks like it came out great.

    Who in their right mind would go on a cruise this year? And yes, I realize there will be tons of people that will. Because, people.

  2. How is your brussels sprout? Growing?
    Bread looking great!
    Cruising? … Maybe a few years from now … Not anytime soon.

    May the fourth/force be with you all!
    Will try tune in tomorrow!

  3. Cut me off a chunk of that bread and put a slathering of butter on it! It looks heavenly. A stomach ache would be worth it. You gotta pace yourself Joe.

  4. Holy crap, Akemi! That’s an amazing loaf! Nice oven spring! Good dough slashing! Did you get a money shot after it was sliced? I want to see the crumb.

  5. Are you gluten intolerant? (wouldn’t that be funny? 😉 ) Otherwise, I’m with Ponytail about slathering it with butter and enjoying that loaf. There’s something about warm bread with butter. Oh, and maybe a little honey drizzle, too. Yum!

    The seedlings look great too!

    I’ve only gone on one cruise. The crew was excellent about cleaning. I was impressed with their work ethic. On one day, they even cleaned our balcony with a pressure washer. It’s the passengers that were slobs. A lot of them stayed drunk and smoking sections seemed optional. I mainly ate, napped, read books and avoided the other passengers. If I could find a cruise line with only a few (non smoking) passengers, I’d give it a go.

  6. YAY! GO AKEMI!!! That bread looks like it came out deliciously perfect! XO
    The garden looks like it’s coming along very nicely, as well.

  7. Very impressive garden already. And well, looks like I already missed the event. There was a very good reason (I’ll write more on a more current post) I’ll see if I can watch it non-live.
