昨天診所的 Julie 說廖醫師台灣的叔叔來看牙, 還帶來了在台中追思禮拜拍的照片. 雖然這些照片真會讓人再度慯痛起來, 還是很謝謝他的好意. 於是決定烤些小蛋糕帶去拜訪他和嬸嬸. 由於一做就是 24 個, 就也送些給小叔家和姑媽家. 他們對於收到這些蛋糕都蠻開心的, 希望也覺得好吃.
Today I baked some cupcakes for an uncle and aunt from Taiwan. The recipe makes 24 such cupcakes, so I decided to give some of them to other relatives. Since these chiffon cupcakes are sort of a new item in the local bakeries, my relatives were surprised and were happy when they saw the cakes, and I hope they really enjoyed them.
這樣寫不知對不對? 酸麵包聽起來好奇怪, 好像壞掉了似的. 其實是天然發酵產生的酸味, 夾帶著很獨特的香甜味, 個人認為很好吃, 有的愛好者還非此麵包不吃呢!
Anyway, 最近開始做這酸麵包, 原因是葡萄種天然酵母培養成功了! 這真是大喜訊呢! 好久以來就想養天然酵母, 一直都沒勇氣開始, 這回還要感謝教會的李基藏牧師娘呢! 上上主日在教會遇到她, 她很熱誠地送我她自己種的很甜的葡萄一大串, 很甜又有機, 但是顆粒小了點, 籽也大了點, 吃得有點辛苦. 靈機一動, 何不用來養酵母呢? 還是有機的葡萄ㄟ, 成功了的話就可天天有酸麵包吃了, 比光吃葡萄更開心呢!
好像應該寫中文的貼文吧! 只是打得好慢又好會打錯字. 不過試試也好. 噯, 真是英文也差中文也差差!
World peace, Lord! The big world and our little worlds at home for my sisters and brothers, Lord! Touch the hearts of those troubled souls who struggle to stay peaceful by their own will... Lord, please reveal to them that we are nothing without you, only by your power that we can overcome the hardship in our lives...
Maybe I should not trade at all! Not making money at all this year... Well, only made 6.9% this year, and that's nothingness... What lame performance...
I thought that LVS was going to pull back! Well, all in all, that long expected September pull back of the market never happened, and that stinks! Ugh!
Two Sundays ago (10/17/2010) I ran into Mrs. Lee (李基藏牧師娘) in church, and she gave me some of her house farmed grapes. The grapes were deliciously sweet; however, they were a bit small and the seeds were big, so I decided to make better use of them-to grow wild yeast. I've always wanted to try "capturing", "culturing" or "growing" wild yeast for quite some time, but have never been brave enough to start.
Tada! After a week of keeping the yeast alive, I made my first sourdough bread this morning with the wild yeast I harvested last night.
謝謝小瑛的啟發, 讓我也勇敢地踏出耕耘 blog 的第一步. 不過夜已深, 剛開張就要去睡覺了! 晚安.
