Traditional Hungarian Bread And the Traditional Hungarian Breed

Breaking Bad? No, Baking Bread!

Ok, I’ll skip the „not really being funny” part.

Big news! (Beeeeeehold!) We have a breadmaker. My grandparents got it as a Christmas present years ago and it was standing next to its box unused since then. Well, until I found it.

So, we figured out we will take one big step to stop eating things we dont know the origin of (and might potentially kill us in the long run).

Our new routine is to cook 2-3 times a week; my boyfriend makes soup and bread, and I make the rest. We only drink organic juices and mineral water (ok maybe some wine, too), and make sure to avoid fast food, processed meat and pre-made meals alltogether. I still aim (yes, aim, it is not fully happening, but I cut way back on my gluten intake) for gluten-free, and with home made bread I can be sure it is fully celiac-friendly. We also have the choice of making separate breads for my boyfriend and me, so he does not have to follow my diet if he does not want to.

Here is our first bread. To be completely honest, it turned out to be really bad. Baking bad, ha! I know, I promised I’ll cut the silly jokes…..

Once we figure out how to make good bread, I’ll start sharing my recipes. 🙂

The Hungarian Breed

The other catch of the week was meeting my  friend’s new Vizsla (and her, too).

“The Vizsla is a dog breed originating in Hungary, which belongs under the FCI group 7 (Pointer group). The Hungarian or Magyar Vizsla are sporting dogs and loyal companions, in addition to being the smallest of the all-round pointer-retriever breeds.” Read more…

All I know, they are cute and I can never have them. They are not indoors material. They constantly need the running, jumping, sniffing the air, enjoying the sun and running more… eating shoes might also come with; but for sure, they are one of the cutest puppies of all time. They are also huge kiss givers and talk a lot. Ideal family puppies, awesome around children but they do need space.

Here are my pictures of the guest stars of the week, enjoy (finally a break from my all-star cats) 🙂

Notice to boyfriend: I am not removing this, sue me! 😛
