I had the most amazing, relaxing weekend. It all started when I decided to make homemade gluten-free bread in the new breadmaker my dad bought for me. Gluten-free bread is so expensive, and usually not that great-tasting. I’ve gotten used to the dense, weird taste of gluten-free bread, but I obviously still long for “normal” bread. It was a scavenger hunt of sorts to get all the proper ingredients for the bread recipe…tapioca flour, xanthan gum, potato starch, etc. After hunting them all down, we set to work making the bread. It was surprisingly easy to make, and after three hours, the most delicious, soft, spongy, perfectly tasting bread was made! Ever since going gluten-free last April, I had really missed that taste. Needless to say, my weekend was filled with strawberry jam toasts and ham sandwiches. Yum. On Saturday we went strawberry picking at a local “pick-your-own” farm. For only $10, we filled up two big containers of the freshest, sweetest strawberries! It seemed like we piled them on nearly everything we ate this weekend (and they were perfectly appropriate for Wimbledon watching!). My little nephew, Maxx, even loved them. He stayed with us this weekend, and we had the best time with him. I love being an Auntie. We saw baby racoons in a tree, went to a few different playgrounds, took long walks, played with neighbourhood doggies, and laid in the grass til the mosquitoes came out. The rest of the weekend was spent on long bike rides, antique shopping, and going to the ice cream parlor. What did you do this weekend?
