Today in Photo


Last night we made bread. Here it is, the crowning glory of my domestic achievements. Like in Louisa May Alcott's Eight Cousins, where the orphaned Rose learns those pinnacles of housewifeliness: bread and buttonholes. It's not very beautiful, our bread, but it tastes divine; yeasty and rich, the rye flour is dense, the crust is crisp, the insides just soft enough and I just had a slice this morning for breakfast and everyone should have fresh bread. It makes you feel so self sufficient to make it yourself, like a pioneer or something. And to repeat one of the few German phrases my language app has taught me: das brot ist lecker. #domesticgoddess #baking #smug
