It’s that (second) time of the year again, folks! Ann Arbor’s Restaurant Week just passed by, and when Restaurant Week opens, students (or jobless alumni like me) go flocking!

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.

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.

Man Lee, being the observant friend she is, realized that I like food quite a bit. So she arranged for us to stop by Gyu-kaku, a Japanese barbecue grill.
