I cannot say we are living an easy situation here in Italy.
The third week of closed schools is almost starting, children are so tired of being alone with no friends around, no sports to do…
Please consider we are doing all this as prevention, to avoid a rapid spread and a collaps of our health care system, we are not dying bad!
Anyway we will carry on until all this will set up to normality again.
I had very few moments to think of blog of course and also very little time to cook and bake but I have recently tried this bread.
I’ve never heard of it before I saw a post on a Facebook group about German cooking.
Even if I’ve never seen this in Germany I loved it and this would be a nice add to your dinner!
