Bundle up

It looks a bit dull today; dull but clear, not gloomy like yesterday. It is also a bit warmer, hiking up in the 20s. I still bundled the boys up in layers before bringing them outside. Kids don’t care about the cold until their hands become numb. I only let them out for a few minutes and I was already feeling the chill in my bones.



PP had early school time this morning so Peanut and I dropped him off then returned home so I can start baking again. They ate the whole loaf of sweet milk bread yesterday and asked me to make some more. See, it’s nice to have kitchen testers like my kids, they are carb hoarders and love everything bread. Whenever we take them to Cheesecake Factory, they only look forward to the free breads that were served as soon as we sit down. Sometimes PP took the liberty to ask for more. If I were to allow them to have bread for all meals, I am sure they would probably be quite happy about it.

The downside of learning to bake is that I kind of whacked up my low-carb regiment, which I have been consistent since June. But the demand for homemade breads has put me back on eating more simple carbs even though I have tried to sneak in portions of whole wheat and whole grains as much as I can into certain breads.

When I gain more confidence in basic bread making then I will venture into using other types of flour that give better nutritional values than regular white bread or all-purpose flours.

  1. “Ấm” của nàng là “in the 20s”. Còn đối với dân cao bồi thì đó là lạnh teo rồi á. Mấy mẹ con em iu giữ gìn sức khỏe đó nha. Nhất là mẹ đẹp đó. hugssss

    1. Mấy mẹ con cứ ở trong nhà ru rú không Hà nàng ơi. Trời lạnh thì không dám đem tụi nhỏ ra ngoài nhiều vì sợ nó không chịu vô nhà lại. Nhất là thằng Peanut đó, nó thèm chơi với tuyết lắm mà mỗi lần cho nó ra là nó không muốn vô luôn.

      1. Mùa này thời tiết trên đó lạnh & tuyết không nên mấy mẹ con giữ gìn sức khỏe nhen. Tụi nhỏ mà, đâu có biết lạnh hay sợ lạnh gì đâu. Làm nhớ hồi mấy chị em tui mới qua Mỹ đó. Thấy tuyết khoái quá, ra nghịch cả buổi mà đâu biết sợ. Đến hôm sau đau nằm rồi bị sưng phổi luôn á.

        Nhìn chàng Peanut khoái chí vậy là biết khoái nghịch tuyết lắm rồi. ❤
