Starting today the restaurants are again open in Finland. Of course, Corona is not over yet, there are still many people getting it and one still needs to be careful while being out, but still having a small breakfast out feels quite nice (although the lockdown was not even that long compared to other countries).
However, let’s hope the vaccines will start to have an effect and that severe infections or even deaths will vanish soon and we can start to live normal lifes again.
As emergency food a bought some time ago a ‘British Style Snackbox’… Today was the day of emergency where I was too lazy to cook, opened it and got straight away good mooded! All different snacks a packed in separate plastics, in bag sizes two/three times the size that would be needed. What the f*ck?! What for do those bags need to be that big, Lidl?!
A very simple, but tasty way to get fresh Brötchen (rolls) in the morning. The dough is prepared in the evening and the dough raises during the night in the fridge. In the morning the rolls only need to be formed and put into the oven.
Mix all ingredients into a large bowl, cover it with a towel and place it into the fridge for approx 12 hours (meaning, if you want to have fresh Brötchen in the morning, do the dough in the evening...).
Form small, round shaped Brötchen (add some flour to your hands to avoid the dough to stuck on your hands...), place them on a baking tray and back them for 25 minutes at 230 degrees.
Ideally, if you have a steam oven, add some (250ml) water to it, otherwise place a bowl with water into the oven.
Just on Christmas the snow came to southern Finland and we had some ‘white powdered Christmas’. However, now, a few day after that we got quite a nice amount of snow and looking at the temperatures it seems it came to stay. Lets see, maybe I’ll manage even this winter to learn better skiing or skating.
