Preztel Man

Joe came home from work today and decided to try something he has always wanted to do: make pretzels.

Boiling the shaped pretzels.

Sprinkling coarse salt on the boiled dough.

The baked pretzels.

I, on the other hand, spent the day nursing a cold and cough, and watching a family of quail in the backyard. The cold bug has been going through the house and everyone decided on a pot of homemade chicken soup for dinner.

Homemade pretzels actually go pretty well with chicken soup.

I hope you and yours feel better soon, Pat. I think pretzels go well with almost everything -- even chocolate frosting -- especially soup. Good call. And what a fun little parade of quail you've got there...do you live near a wildlife area or are they just the normal yard birds in your neck of the woods?

Hope you are feeling better - We have a family of Quail in the neighborhood too - aren't they fun!
I love to listen to them calling back and forth!
Rest and knit!!

Mmmm the pretzels look great. That's something I have on my list of things I'd like to do this year.
Feel better!!

Yum! The pretzels look great! I have made bagels, but not pretzels. The technique looks the same...I'll have to try it!
