Pretzel Buns September 24,2012

With our recent trip to Germany, we have all become fans of Pretzels. Sam ate many pretzels and loved the experience. I have recently noticed a trend that more of the local bakeries are carrying a selection of pretzels and pretzel buns, so when I stumbled across this recipe I thought I should give it a try. Well I am pleased to report they turned out splendidly. I would watch the salt that I put on top as the rolls get placed in a bath of salt and baking soda, and alternatively I would make my rolls much smaller. They were delicious.

September so far 2012

So our September is more than half way through. Sam commenced Grade 2 and is fortunate enough to be in the same class as his buddies I don't know how that happened but will enjoy the ride. Darren took the first week of school off to enjoy Sam returning to school and it was good as his  help was more than needed(more on that in a bit). We have been blessed with truly fantastic weather which has given us time to continue to enjoy our yard and garden. The last few days around here have been filled with the start of fall clean up I picked the last of my sunflowers and my tomatoes are slow to ripen so I clipped some branches to help the process along. Darren was completing the project we had going to espalier our apple trees that we planted last fall. And I think he did a fine job will try and take picture soon.

August 2012

Our August was slightly more lazy but still filled with activity. We attended our nephews 8th birthday party at laser tag , rode the seawall in Vancouver and had really good greasy burgers from FAT BURGER , lost our first tooth , enjoyed a night at the outdoor movies with our friends , had our niece stay over had a water fight and went to the cultas lake waterpark , rode the watershed a few times to build Sam's confidence and skills and the love of my life celebrated his 40th Birthday. We were fortunate to join some friends at their home in Whistler for his actual birthday we had a fabulous weekend and look forward to seeing them all again soon!

July 2012

Our July was pretty steady with activities. We attended friends birthday parties, goofed around in the back yard ,went bike riding with friends, went canoeing, attended some day camps and managed to get away with some friends.
We went away to Seabrook in Washington, with our friends. A few years ago we managed to stumble on to the Olivia Beach homes in Oregon, which were fabulous. In light of our wonderful experience we wanted to get away again but maybe not as much driving time. And this Seabrook homes in Washington was a wonderful compromise same great house, terrific location and still a drive but not quite as long.
Our days were filled with walks on the beach, bike rides, swimming in the pool, riding on the beach both car and bikes, flying kites, digging in the sand and of coarse lots of food. We we part of four families that managed to go so like our prior trip we all opted to take turns cooking breakfast and dinners so everyone felt they had a vacation. We made pancakes, bacon in and fruit for breakfast, Jill did a fabulous pork cooked in root beer then served on fresh buns and coleslaw, Kim made tasty a wifesaver with sausage for breakfast and Jodi made flavourful fajitas. And there was food beyond all of those delectable meals.
Overall it was a very busy month.
