Secret Business : Wildflour Bread

Did you know Wildflour Bread makes sourdough in Fernie? Just sourdough and they’re selling for $6 a loaf or $10 for 2. I’m a huge fan of sourdough so this excites me greatly. Find them on instagram or Facebook.

I Might Buy One Of Those Gingerbread House Kits Next Year.

I wouldn’t say it was a success but I’m not fully deterred from making another Gingerbread House from scratch next year.

I’ll have to make some notes so I can make some improvements:
1. Make the gingerbread taste good. very important.
2. Make the frosting thicker so a) the walls of the house stick together and doesn’t fall apart and b) you can actually stick candy to the gingerbread house.
3. Don’t forget to make a roof.
4. Roll the dough thinner so the walls aren’t so heavy.

So, in summary, do everything better next year.

Why Didn’t You Tell Me Making A Gingerbread House Is This Hard?!

making a gingerbread house with the kids
I’m quite sure not a single side of my gingerbread house will match up to another nor will it taste good. But we are having fun making it! I think. I do wish someone had told me it’s not as easy as sitting your 3 and 1 year old down to make a gingerbread house together and have it turn out exactly like all those beautiful gingerbread homes you see online. To be honest, without the kids around I would find it hard and I am now seeing the appeal of those gingerbread house sets you buy in a box at the grocery store.

Alas, I do enjoy a challenge.

I’ll let you know how it ends.
