Tonight I made flat bread and doughnuts with the YW. I brought some dough that had been rising since 4pm. We got our hands a little greasy then patted the dough into the shapes. Then we cooked it and the girls took turns putting it on the griddle and flipping it. I told them that it's not like pancakes, but you can still watch for signs that it is ready to flip.
Then we cooked the doughnuts second and A had some cinnamon and sugar to sprinkle on them. After that we went outside and made some dough for them to take home. I used twist tie gallon bags to give each girl about 1-2 cups of dough. Then they could knead it in the bag. They can take them home and put it in the fridge to make something yummy tomorrow.
I told the girls that the most important thing about the dough was giving it time to rise. It's interesting to me that women seem the most beautiful from age 14-16 and then go through a rough patch until about age 21-30+. It's so tempting to try and attract attention in that early phase of rosebud beauty. But your real beauty sets in when you're older. I married at 21 and I just keep getting more beautiful each year! That's what my husband says and I believe it.
