I forgot my oven was in Celsius. I saw this…
…and thought, “What? That’s not very hot.” Actually, 240C is 464F. But I didn’t know that when I was baking my soda bread. Boy, did I bake that thing. Haha..
Here’s how it turned out:
It was a little doughy inside and well cooked on the outside, which makes sense with the high temperature I was baking it at. Not only did I have it turned All the way up, but I turned the broiler on for the first five minutes to add some more heat. Hahaha! At least it looks good and it’s still going to be eaten, probably with butter and some cinnamon sugar. Well, now I know and will use my oven correctly next time!
Right now I’m the only one awake here. Stephen likes naps all the time, but he isn’t feeling well and needs some extra rest. Emery always takes a nap. He seems to be the first to really adjust to this time zone; he was up at 7:00 this morning. I’m not sure I’m ready for that…so I took a nap. 🙂 I was reading, my eyes got heavy, so I put my book down and snoozed for a little. Myka was reading beside me on the couch, and when I woke up I realized she had fallen asleep too. So cute. She has a stuffy nose, so she’s snoring. I need her to wake up now though, or she wont go to sleep tonight. None of my quieter attempts have worked. I’m going to have to be a little more direct. But not too direct. She can be a bear (a grumpy bear) when you wake her up, and I don’t really want to deal with that.
Tonight we’ll be using some more laban to make pancakes! I’m pretty excited about this; I love pancakes. And then tomorrow Stephen is back to work. He has a six day work week this week with (hopefully) no sick days, so it will be a long one. But it will settle us into our normal routine, and there is plenty to do, so we’ll stay busy. I’m usually fairly content with whatever I have, wherever I am. But we’re just at the beginning here. So far, just having pancakes is enough to make my day, and I’m happy to be here with my little family.
