I had a quiet but really nice weekend. Yesterday night, a bunch of friends and I went out to a restaurant called Tiny Thai for dinner to celebrate my birthday (which was today – well, oops, now technically yesterday). This morning, I declared it was “Baking Challah Day” and brought some freshly baked and oven-warm challah to the lab. There are no pictures, but I’ll write a post about challah… soon… but it was just the way I like it, pulled apart with my hands, with the loaf’s inside being pillowy soft and the bottom with a slightly crisp crust. Isn’t that the best way to enjoy bread? ^_^
Since fall is slowly starting to creep its way here, I walked down to the waterfront and take some photos of the sunset. Unfortunately, weather.com predicted the sunset at 7:15 p.m. and I think I got there a tad too late to get the best of the colours:
I didn’t use a tripod for the last two photos, by the way. I lucked out by placing the camera on a concrete post that served as railing so people don’t topple over into Lake Champlain. Otherwise, the lighting was too dim to have taken anything this sharp with my shaky, shaky hands.
Methinks I should definitely do some sunset-shooting again before the weather turns chilly permanently.
By the time I returned home, I didn’t really feel like anything too fancy and opted to make a quick pizza instead. No recipe this time… just more photos.
What a weekend! Baking the way a baking fiend likes to bake, relaxing, and best of all, enjoying some time and great food with my wonderful friends.
p.s. Oh, and happy mid-autumn festival – 中秋節快樂！I hope you had lots of mooncake, mmm.
