Take Two Gluten Free Pita Bread

The other day I tried making the gluten free bread from the blog I found on Pinterest.

The pinterest link is https://elavegan.com/gluten-free-pita-bread/

It failed. Because I used “regular gluten free flour” not white rice flour.

So today, it’s snowing and cold which makes a good day to be in the kitchen.

I now have all the ingredients. I didn’t have white rice flour the other day. I also bought a kitchen scale. As I’m learning that gluten free flours need to be measured in grams not cups.

I set everything out for room temperature, while I was in my home office, decluttering.

Now I wait for the dough to rise. It definitely is better using the white rice flour. The dough formed a nice ball.

I have it tucked in my kitchen with towels over it to help it rise. It will be another 45 minutes until then next step.

The pita bread did not puff. I saw some puffing but certainly not like how the blog shows. I will have to continue perfecting it.

I made butternut squash soup with pita bread hummus, salami and cucumbers.

It was the most delicious lunch I had in a long time.

The recipe is a success. More successful with the white rice flour!

Happy Day

Cuddling with Books

The other day I tried making gluten free pita bread. It was a flop. I decided to buy a few gluten free cookbooks to learn more about it.

The books arrived today. I’m going to sit on the sofa and read a little and watch some tv. Then I need to go through another cross stitch pattern I found and decide if I want to start stitching it after winter gatherings.

Did You Know

I’m at the introduction of the gluten free cookbook and learning so much.

I didn’t know that you can not measure gluten free flour the same as wheat flour. And it’s best to use a kitchen scale.

Off to the store tomorrow to buy a kitchen scale.

Dinner

Here’s my dinner:

It’s Salmon, rice, beets, asparagus. With a glass of water.

Earlier today I started organizing and looking through a bin on my vanity.

Most items in this bin was thrown away. Yes, all nail polish was tossed. Only the clear nail polish was kept. I’m not into painting nails anymore.

Tomorrow there’s a few clients on my schedule. But I am planning to get to the store and then try to go through my cleaning supplies and reorganize the closet in the office.

Then stitching at night until I fall asleep. I don’t care for new years eve. So it’s not important to watch the ball drop. I rather get sleep!

Happy Evening
