Basically it's Tuesday


We are a group of parents that chat and support each other.
We have been at this for a while so some of us are out of the diapering stage.
...some were out and are back in again.
Every once in a while we actually get to answer a diaper question or two in here.
If you are looking for a very diverse and open group come on over and chat.

It was a long, somewhat annoying day and I am glad to be home.

We had French bread pizzas for supper.

I need a nap, but really have to get to work on my report cards.
What happens then to the kids that arrive in your school from your class and you're in a different school?

MH and I are hanging out. Jerry is jacking up the car to clean out the mud from the wheels and rims. It was shaking pretty good on the way home.

We are supposed to get snow over night...that will make the mud really really bad. Oh joy. We were down about 20% on students today from the mud issues. Buses don't go off blacktop when it is like this so if the kids cant get to the road they cant get to school. Jerry estimate 10+ inches of loose mud at MIL so that is what it will be like at the kids houses too.
Ohhh that sounds delicious!

I cant even imagine that much mud.

I made up a massive jug of orange/apple/ginger juice for myself this morning. And now I'm on hot honey/lemon/ginger.

I went to town for my massage...which ended up not being a massage. Not enough time for it. Shame really. It's tipping down with rain. I dropped my scarf in the rain and I nearly got blown off the road.

They would just go to a different teacher for the day. Some teachers only had 6 students. Even with my 12, they wouldn't have had a full class.

Busses are back on today, it seems. I hope everyone makes it to school! Ru and E are out waiting for the bus. I need to make my lunch and head out too. Have a good day!

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Silly question....when I buy yeast it comes in little packages. Is that how you buy it too or can you buy it in a jar too?

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

I see...I've found you can but now I see you have quick rise and bread machine yeast...is there a difference?

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Never mind. It's only me being silly. I just wanted the jar to have a jar to fill with yeast instead of messing about with little packages but I'll find something here.

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

I buy regular dry yeast in a jar. I do not use a bread machine so I don't use that type. rapid rise yeast is only for certain recipes.

Cake (moist) - the traditional live yeast; needs to be dissolved in water

Active dry - the traditional dry yeast; needs to be dissolved usually with a bit of sugar

Instant - contains a bit of yeast enhancer (citric acid, maybe some other stuff?) and is possibly more concentrated than active dry; does not need to be dissolved

Bread Machine - exactly the same as instant in a different package

Rapid Rise - larger amount of yeast enhancers and other packaging changes to the granules. Does not have to be dissolved. Works very fast and is intended for straight doughs that you want to complete within an hour or so. Generally not used by artisan bakers who seek slower, not faster, rise.

Janine, in the US you can buy the instant in the packages, in a 4 oz jar, or if you go to a warehouse store like Costco/Sams club in one pound vacuumed sealed packages. If it's legal to mail them to Germany, I can mail you some if you can't order it online.

Re: Basically it's Tuesday

Thank you Jen....really all I want is a jar that is dark and has yeast written on it. I suppose I could find something here that would do but you know how it is. I'd like it to say yeast because it says yeast and not because I've stuck a label on it.
