i made pancakes again
for some reason, they still turned out
a little gummy?
i don’t know if it’s the ingredients
i tried making pancakes with oats
because the pancakes i made the other day
made me hungry after an hour.
so i put in equal parts flour and oats
and mixed in some baking powder
some black sesame seeds!
(pinjing, this is for you. :D)
i mixed up the dry mix
and popped it in the fridge.
in the morning, i added milk until
the batter was stirrable.
i only got two pancakes out of this batch
😦 last time i got 3.25 pancakes
they turned out rather tasty.
and they smelled really good.
if you know the smell of sesame
then you’ll know what i’m talkin’ about.
also last night, i cut up
ate one, and put the other in the fridge
for the next morning.
i’ve always eaten kiwis the easy way:
- Cut in half horizontally.
- Scoop out flesh with a spoon.
but i decided that i wouldn’t have time
to eat it like that in the morning
so i did this:
- Lop off the top and bottom ends of the kiwi.
- Stand kiwi vertically.
- Cut the peel off, slicing downwards.
- Slice peeled kiwi in half lengthwise.
and it was easier to eat,
because i could use a fork.
i like forks.
i don’t know why.
anyway, some updates on the peanut butter crumble:
GAWN, BAYBEH, GAWN!
yeah. i ate about half a cup of peanut crumble
in a day.
i do feel somewhat bad
but i’m over that.
i’m already dreaming of almond butter.
i was contemplating going out and buying
ready-made peanut butter today
(the crunchy kind, which
i’ve never had. gasp!)
but considering how i spooned the stuff
into my mouth
i decided against it.
so today i went on a walk with my grandma
out to buy some bread.
we have coupons for two bakeries
that are basically pieces of paper
worth money that you buy bread with.
no paying. it’s not discount, it’s…
what’s the term?
bread tokens! hellsyeah.
random names aside,
for some reason, i, like an idiot
decided not to go to either of those bakeries
which we have /free/ bread tokens to.
i decided to go to a bakery designed
for foreigners here.
(in my defense,
i was looking for sourdough
which i knew they had.)
now, the bread there is very expensive.
much more expensive than what we could have gotten
for free, mind you, in the other two bakeries.
they have a basket of bread from the day before
that is 50% off.
i decided to take my chances and see if there was
any leftover sourdough from yesterday.
what there was left:
- sunflower seed toast
- 2 bags of 3 mixed-grain buns each
- 1 bag of 2 bagels + ciabatta
none of them really appealed to me
but i decided to get the sunflower seed toast
(which had 14+ slices in it.
read: too much for me to eat.)
which was 7 kuai.
(the 2 bags of 3 mixed-grain buns was 5 kuai.)
(7 kuai is roughly $1.)
halfway back home
i realised that i just could have not bought any bread
gotten my bread coupons tokens
and bought free bread at the other two bakeries.
i turned around, went back to the bakery
and demanded to return my sunflower seed toast.
well, i ended up changing the sunflower seed toast
for the three mixed-grain buns in a bag.
and i ate half with dinner.
it wasn’t good.
it was hard and tough.
at least there was sea salt sprinkled on top…
but not enough.
i am not happy about my mixed-grain buns.
one thing i’m a little worried about:
my grandma seems to be completely compliant
with my eating habits.
she is content with letting me eat
veggies and nothing else.
this means i have to take responsibility
of my own nutritional needs.
wish me luck!
A little help on the gummy pancakes thing… please?
