Take A Peek Wednesday: Scenes from a train and a pizza workshop!

              My bread class buddies took another workshop together..this time we all met up to do a wood oven pizza class! We already knew how to make pizza but when you bake it in a wood fire oven..something magical happens. It tastes a thousand times better! Interestingly enough we had hurricane force winds the day we went..It was just this past Saturday and my husband and I ended up getting stranded in a town due to the trains being cancelled and then begging 5 other people to share a cab together in order to make it home. It didn't take anything away from our day but only added to the already wonderful memory of all of us laughing and learning..I also will say that I LOVE traveling by train in first class. It makes all the difference in the world!

               We'll be taking another class together in a few months time and I can hardly wait!

I know my posting has been really scarce but I make a point to take advantage of summer time around here. It's gone in a blink of an eye when it comes to the warm weather and my boys being home full time..both will be ending soon so I plan to soak up the last few weeks. I'll have a ton of bread recipes to post and an update on a few things so stay tuned!

Triscuits in Germany!!!!

                    One of the things I love most about living in The Netherlands is my foodie expat community. We have a wonderful Facebook group going on where we share everything from recipes,how to help, scheduling a yearly foodie themed pot luck,to where to find this or that. This was a recent discovery..Triscuits in Germany.
       For anyone else who stumbles upon this post..You can find these at a store called Edeka. I was able to pick from original or Paprika flavored. I know there are more flavors but those were the two I spotted during my visit there today. I came home and opened the box up right away. They are almost exactly like home. The one difference is the slight difference in texture and flavor..these ones were more firm but honestly..if you are a fan of Triscuits like I am..Buy these. I loved them and will be going back for more. I will say they are crazy salty but so are the ones back home. I won't be eating them often but more like a treat now and again.

It's the little things sometimes. I am one happy camper!
