ladychapel: (Joy of Cooking)
Wednesday, February 17th, 2010 03:08 pm
I made freshly baked pretzels last night in honor of Lent. I used a recipe from The Joy of Cooking. I usually don't eat pretzels that often even though I'm from Philly. Making them from scratch was well worth it. They were like Auntie Anne pretzels but not as greasy. I need to practice my shaping skills, though. The Joy recipe was good but had a comment to boil the pretzels for about a minute or until they float to the top. I don't know what it means about floating to the top after a minute. They floated the instant I put them in the water.

I'm going to get ashes later and do other Lent stuff. I'm giving up the same stuff as last year: chicken and alchohol. I break my alcohol fast on Holy Thursday and my chicken fast after the Easter Vigil.
