Feeling Bad, Feeling Good
I made a 22 out of 25 on my first Fun-Bake Quiz.
Not bad, I suppose. I missed one question out of sheer bone-headedness. I know the germ is not the outer covering of the wheat, but I said it was. Why? Yeah, I dunno either.
After class on Saturday I felt really bad about myself, and I have come to the conclusion that my experience means bubkus in class. I need to just pretend that I have not made a lot of the things we have are baking in class. It is easier that way because the way I do things is not the way the teacher does things, and her way can be easier in fact. I just hate feeling dumb because I know how to get to the same destination but I take a different road to get there. But that is why I am in school. To learn. I do not know it all, and I need to remember that.
I went home that same day and made some danish at home, to practice the rolling and folding. I think I did it properly … I hope I did, because I can not figure it out any other way. They were multi-layered and puffy when baked, as you would expect. They also tasted like buttered sin … always good in my book!!
I will be posting pics this week … braided bread, corn muffins, and some cinnamon rolls that were pretty good, but not as good as my recipe. (Honest!! They needed more butter and cinnamon filling.)
Tomorrow is another Sanitation class. I had a quiz last week and another this week. I am going to study tonight and tomorrow at lunch. Yay, study!!
