Sharing My World 2016 Week 41 and dralibread!

Here is my post for Cee’s Share Your World.


Do you believe in love at first sight?
Nope. I don’t see how that can really exist. Doesn’t that mean you’re falling in love with the way someone looks, pretty much? That’s lust at first sight.

Your first car?
It was a 1985 Ford Fiesta, in a very light blue, almost grey colour. It served me well(ish) for six or seven years, at which point it went into the crusher πŸ™‚

Who taught you to ride a bike? How did it go?
My dad, I guess. I don’t know how it went the first time, but I had stabilisers so I wouldn’t have fallen off. I can’t remember much in detail from so long ago!

Ugly and rich or beautiful and poor?
Somewhere in the middle. That way I can slip around without drawing undue attention. Okay, rich. No, wait, beautiful. Rich. I can’t decide.

What was the first dish you could cook?
I suppose it was a fry up, at least that’s the first thing I can remember. I had to learn how to do it for my “Home Help” badge in the Cub Scouts. Does throwing stuff in a frying pan and waiting until it’s done really count as cooking?

On a “cooking” note I baked my first bread last week. The cheese and herbs on the top got a little “browned”, but otherwise, it had a nice crust and was very soft on the inside. Tasty dralibread πŸ™‚

    Nice bread!

    It looks like the bread turned out lovely! Was it tasty? I wouldn’t be able to decide between, beautiful and poor or ugly and rich. That’s a hard decision. I suppose with “rich” you could afford to have a face lift. LOL!

      It was tasty!
      Ha, yes, with enough money you can alter things to suit yourself.

    Bread success! It looks good!

      It was! A nice crust and soft inside πŸ™‚

    Thanks so much for sharing. A Ford Fiesta, how fun πŸ˜€

      It was old, “clangy”, only had 4 forward gears and you had to really work the choke quite carefully on a cold day but it was a good car!

    Sometimes, if you’re putting stuff on top on some kind of baking, you bake it nearly all the way, then drop the topping on late in the cycle. It’s a bit tricky, but it works. You have to do it fast without too much banging around so the bread doesn’t collapse.

      That’s what I’m thinking next time! But timing is everything…

    I had a Orange Fiesta about that time! Enjoyed the little car. We call the ‘stabilizers’ on bikes ‘training wheels’.


    • October 17, 2016 at 9:37 am

      “Training wheels” – I like that! All the cool people have owned a Fiesta (I still do!).

      It was! “Dralibread” will soon be a household name πŸ™‚

    I don’t believe in love at first sight either. I think I’m plain (and plain is cousin of ugly) so I’d rather want to be ugly and rich than beautiful and poor.


    • October 17, 2016 at 9:39 am

      Yeah, if you’re rich nobody cares plus you can buy loads of cool stuff.

    Congrats on baking your first bread! Planning to make more in the future?

    Dralibread…you have to get patent on that, Draliman…looks delicious too πŸ˜€ Pawkisses for a Happy Day πŸ™‚ ❀


    • October 17, 2016 at 9:40 am

      My Dralibread (TM) (patent pending) was very tasty πŸ™‚


  12. October 17, 2016 at 2:23 pm

    I love the empathy you displayed for your beloved first car when it met its ultimate destiny. The machines….. they do not forget! πŸ˜‰


    • October 17, 2016 at 3:37 pm

      Yeah, I was almost as broken up about it as the car πŸ™‚
      It’s probably been melted down and turned into a Terminator, and it has only one target…

    Now, I would like homemade bread. Looks delicious. And I think pan-frying counts as cooking, especially if there’s more in the pan than a grilled cheese sandwich, which I think was my brother’s first cooking dish.


    • October 18, 2016 at 7:29 am

      Good-oh! I’m often confused as to what counts as actual “cooking” and what is simply “chucking stuff in a pan/oven”.


  14. October 20, 2016 at 7:42 am

    The bread looks quiet tasty.
    Well done and I agree it’s lust at first sight.


    • October 20, 2016 at 11:54 am

      It was! I gave a loaf to my parents and Mum said they loved it. Though she’s unlikely to tell me it was horrid πŸ™‚

    I thought I smelled bread baking a few days ago! The texture looks grat, doc.


    • October 22, 2016 at 4:49 pm

      Baking bread smells travel thousands of miles! It was lovely πŸ™‚

    πŸ˜› looks great.
