I haven’t been sick for years and it was about the time…. I just spent 6 hours between doctor’s office and hospital, went through an uncomfortable study 😦 Fortunately it was nothing and I have no fever anymore. 😦 Not fun being sick. Glad that Star lives close by now. He took the day off and came to take care of me 😉
Let’s rewind a little bit. I did bake new batch of bread. Hearty-chia bread
baking in oven is easy but I really want to try baking in a dutch oven. Many bread makers use it, it seems to capture better the moisture and make the crust extra crunchy. CSN stores have a large collection of dutch ovens. I like this and this.
Hearty-chia bread adapted from bittersweetblog
- 3/4 Cup Warm Water
- 1/4 cup chia seed
- 3 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 cup bread flour
- 1/2 wheat germ
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 cup apple cider
1. Combine the chia seeds and warm water, and allow them to sit for at least 15 minutes, giving the mixture a good sir after the first 5.
2. Add all the ingredients from liquid to solid to the bread machine and choose dough cycle.
3. Put the dough in a floured surface and let it rise 1-2 hours more covered with a towel
4. Bake at 375F for 35 min
warm bread + butter = perfection! 😀
Yesterday I got a big shipment of tea that I ordered for my BFF Mara
She’s obsessed with Bigalow’s green tea with lemon, truly believing that it’s a great source of antioxidants! 😀
4 pounds of tea!!!
when I came back from the post office I began to feel cold and tired. So I took this
It didn’t work because I got fever later, not too high, about 100F. This morning I woke up terrible, with a sharp pain in my tummy, I could barely move. I didn’t want to go to doctor, just sleep until I feel better. But Star wouldn’t agree. He took to the doctor and the doctor suspected appendicitis. Oh.. no!! that means surgery.. means days spent in hospital, means no 10k, means no time to finish my dissertation… so many unwanted consequences. 😦 After a scan study, the doctor told me that it was just bloating, no appendicitis. Such a relieve!!! I hope I feel better tomorrow so I won’t miss the apple-picking that we had planned.
Here’s me at the doctor office, devastated 😦
