back to basics

April 7, 2009

back to basics logoSome things are just too easy to take for granted appsen michael kors smartwatch. Pasta comes from a packet. Or, if you’re feeling fancy, from the cooler section of that uber-cute deli down the road. Bread comes in a plastic bag download youtube trailer. And, sometimes, where the sales are on and the mood strikes, in a brown paper bag from the supermarket. If you’re nearby, and it’s open, it might come as a baguette from the Vietnamese Bakery fortnite ios herunterladen. And then there’s cheese, which, if you’re of Asian descent, is usually something seen as a bit “other”. A little pricey. A little too good at inducing that horribly crippling lactose-intolerance-stomach-ache netflix folgen auf laptop herunterladen. To be bought from the supermarket. To eat melted. Only melted.


Which got me thinking movies for free on german. I’ve made pasta. Numerous times. I make cakes and biscuits on an almost never ending cycle. What’s stopping me from trying the other stuff from facebook videos download iphone? The food that pops off the shelf and into the trolley without a second thought. Which is how I ended up here. Making cheese. And bread. And other things yet to come download ls19 mods mac. It has been, expectedly, time consuming. But also rewarding.


Over the next couple of months (or so) I’ll be making recipes for items I like to call Back-to-Basics windows 10 free nederlands 2020. And, so you aren’t stuck with a whole heap of pasta and no-one to play with, I’ll post up a couple of variations, mixes and meals that can be made using said Basic how can I song. If I remember to, I’ll stick a link to all of the Back to Basics (and associated recipes) on this page – so bookmark it if you feel the urge to do so free games download ego shooter.

This is gonna be fun 🙂

    Oo, I can’t wait to see your cheese making. I’ve looked longingly at some cheese kits you can mail order before. I’ve also worried about the litres of milk required and the small yield. This could be just the inspiration I need.
