A miracle?

Almost.

I got this recipe off of Lifehack because the mere idea of making bread usually terrifies me, but this recipe made it seem so ridiculously easy that only an idiot could mess it up.

Wait. Did I say only an idiot could mess it up?

That’s funny…because I messed it up. OTL

My funny story with this ciabatta was that I ought to learn how to read packaging labels. The recipe called for 0.25 tsp of dry yeast. I poured in 7 grams. In case you didn’t realize…7g>0.25 teaspoon.

I didn’t realize my mistake until I poured it all into the warm water and decided to read the package. Unfortunately, I had no way of remedying this since I was in a rush to get to work, so I just dumped everything together and followed the instructions before running out. I was a bit worried that I’d have some sort of giant white monster in my hands, but to my surprise, although the dough had grown, it wasn’t anything close to monstrous. After baking, the bread was actually fine, but had a bit of a yeasty beer flavor.

Since then, I’ve tried experimenting with the recipe a bit, making tastier adjustments to add flavor.

This is veryyyy old, but I have a random bento!

Bento are so easy to make and make pretty! I think half the time, people make bentos just for the fun of decorating and then enjoying some food.

This is my version of a  frozen computer (because I don’t have a TV) dinner.

Unlike most of the food I have here in the blog, this wasn’t made by me (except the steamed vegetables). This is made, with love, from my parents back in California before I came back here in the beginning of September for school.

So once in awhile, when I’m at home, my dad makes congee, or porridge. He says it’s to detoxify our system, although how well it actually works depends on the person, I suppose. We normally have it with only white rice and side dishes from his home village, Shantou, China. Unfortunately, though, I only have it here with random side dishes picked up from the local Asian supermarket.

This multi-grain congee though, sometimes has enough of flavor by itself, so if you choose to, you could probably have it plain. It’s got a very…well, grainy flavor. It’s not something that’s a medley of flavors, but has a clean and natural taste, and it’s good if you’re just tired of eating out.  It’s also incredibly easy and you can multitask at the same time while preparing and cooking the dish. As usual, more behind the jump.
