Food for Thought: Bretzel
In honor of my LAST DAY AT THE INTERNSHIP, I wanted to feature a food that has been on my mind – and in my mouth – all week long. If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you’ll know how much I adore this simple, twisted masterpiece. I had to take advantage of the fact that it was my last week at the office by eating one almost every day! Excessive? Not in the slightest 😉 Delicious? You better believe it, my friend.
Bretzel Fast Facts
- Created in 1477 as the traditional Swabian Bretzel in Germany
- We know and love them today as pretzels, but bretzel makes it sound more exotic!
You can make bretzel rolls by using this recipe from Recipezaar. Another recipe I found over at smitten kitchen. I have plans to adapt the recipes to make them whole grain when I get home. I will be sure to give you a full update with my own adjustments when I make them!
5 New Things…
I am exhausted. I am tired. I am happy. I am elated.
I am done with my internship.
I know this is a cop out, but I have a busy night ahead of me and I must get back to my to-do list. But don’t worry – that just means you get TEN new things tomorrow! How about that?! Not a bad trade if I do say so myself Plus an exciting product review AND the results of my shopping trip with the Whole Foods gift certificate and coupons!!
I hope everyone has been having an enjoyable Friday – welcome to the weekend!
