I’ve been busy last weekend trying to squeeze work while having fun with friends! 😀
After the 10 miles, I finally got into work mode. But it has been stressful. All I can think about is my thesis, everything else just happen by inertia. What I love about economics is that it has the power to catch all my attention, and what I hate about economics is that it catches all my attention. I get obsessed with a subject and can’t deviate attention to anything else. Obviously, there’s exception. Like making bread? 😉
A friend requested bread (after seeing hundred of photos in facebook) so I throw a bread party on Sunday afternoon. While I was working, I he made the dough.
this time I made Pebetes, a typical argentinean bread for sandwich. A soft oval bun with a spongy inside, and a thin toasted crust.
- 600 g water
- 8 tbsp butter
- 2 lbs (6 cups) bread flour
- 2 tsp salt
- 4 tbsp sugar
- 2 tbsp yeast
Add the ingredients to the bread machine in this order and choose the dough cycle. After it’s done (90 min), make 25 balls and let it rise in a warm place like microwave for an hour or until it doubles. Bake at 350 F for 20 min.
I intended to make some cheese puffs.. but they did not puff 😦 although still tasty
The bread is very spongy and soft.
the bread party setting: beers, hams and cheese. 🙂
We were 6 in total, but these two couldn’t wait to try it before others arrived 😀
Saturday I ended up in a food comma. Korea BBQ for lunch. We were 6 and we ordered 6 gigantic plates of meat plus tons of appetizers!!! :shock:. After lunch each of us went back for nap (while I actually worked for 4 hours) and we met again at night to have Thai food. Once again, I enjoyed the food, the talk and the company 🙂
In term of homemade food. I’m obsessed with the tahini & miso sauce. A quick stir fry with the sauce
served with the perfect rice
that’s a perfect meal for me 😆
and more sauce on steamed and roasted veggies
as dessert I’ve been having white fungus and corn (love it) 😀
and lastly… a new book
I have a lot to say about this book (I read it cover to cover in <2 hours), stay tune 😉
Q: What are you obsessed about lately?
