This afternoon, T made burgers. I fried an entire pound of bacon so they could be bacon cheeseburgers. Then I sliced the kaiser rolls, buttered them, and put them on the grill to toast. Awesome. So I think I might finally get around to baking my cookies now. Wish me luck.
For those of you who are new:
From 2006-2010, I lived alone and cooked every day. I had a complete nervous breakdown in 2013, and I haven’t cooked at all since then, not anything more complicated than boxed macaroni and cheese, really. Maybe meatloaf, once or twice. I can count the times I’ve done omelettes on one hand.
I haven’t baked cookies or made french toast since 2010. 2010 has since been identified as an Event in my bipolar cycle.
I am hesitant but excited.
Also, I haven’t taught myself a new skill in a while, but I spent four hours Friday night working on teaching myself pre-algebra. It was fun. It was interesting. @forablueeyedmiracle asked me questions about what I was doing, but they were more advanced than what I was working on, so I told them to “stop giving me maths spoilers,” and then exclaimed when what they had said was the very next lesson. It was fun! They were so supportive!
I failed algebra in university, back in 2001. Entering university has since been identified as an Event in my bipolar cycle.
It was one of two classes I ever failed in my entire life.
The other was when I failed out of teaching classes in 2013, in the midst of my nervous breakdown.
Recovery is hard. Recovery is slow. Recovery, in many cases, in my case, is never ending.
Kaiser rolls are generally used as a sandwich bread. They are lightly enriched and contain malt. About two thirds of the way through the final proofing, they are stamped, which is how they get the design.
