So a few weeks back was the Red River Shoot Out - for those who don't know this is the football game between the University of Texas at Austin and some other school......you know those red people....ug...the University of Oklahoma.
Everyone was bringing something, snacks, drinks, etc, and we were going to cook out for lunch and dinner. Well here's the thing...
Cooking in my mind is akin to torture.
But I do love to bake and have realized the hand kneading and punching dough is a fabulous stress reliever! So I made mini pretzel bites using a recipe from the Curvy Carrot (my new favorite cooking/baking blog!)
Of course the down side to baking....THE DISHES!!
WARNING - these things are best eaten immediately. They did not last well until the next day which was totally sad. In hind sight, I think of course they ended up as rock hard little dough nuggets, the salt zapped all the moisture right out of them!!! But why didn't I think of that then?? *facepalm*
