12.) Make pretzels

Hi everyone, today Molly and I were able to knock off another item on our list, and that is 12.) Make pretzels.

This morning, Molly and I had a meeting with the new yearbook advisor to set up the classroom how we wanted it, work on the page ladder, and anything else we found necessary, we haven’t done anything together for the list since summer started, so we decided to give pretzel making a try.

First, we had to combine sugar, water, salt, and yeast in a bowl for a few minutes

After that, we put them one by one into boiling water and baking soda, and then top them with a water and egg mix, and bake them

We don’t plan on opening a pretzel place anytime soon, but they were delicious, and that’s all that matters

Well, that is all. If you want to try the recipe it’s here, and let us know how it goes,

81 days won’t last forever

Much Love and Summer Fun!
