I'm so glad I committed to baking more often this year and I'm so glad I included making more things from scratch on my April in Alaska goals. The pretzels just came out of the oven and they are SO tasty! I think they turned out perfect in fact. This long awaited experiment is a total successful mission accomplished. I actually kind of wish that the little guy wasn't napping right now so that he could enjoy the fruits of our labor sooner than later. But of course the pretzels will still be yummy when he wakes up from his nap.
The recipe I used is linked HERE for anyone else who's had a life long dream of baking pretzels at home but has yet to try it out. I highly recommend it!
In other news we've also taken one of our dog's for a walk around the block, played with both dogs in the backyard, spent a good 30 minutes doing yard work (digging in the dirt on little Abe's part), dyed some eggs silly colors, and finished our reading from Narnia today. We're 3 and 1/2 chapters in already. April in Alaska, so far so good!
