Hello readers! What's on today's menu? I made pretzels last week for my dear, wonderful, picky-pants husband. I constantly get this question at work when I bring in baked goods: "What about your husband?! Didn't you want to save some of this for him?!" like I'm starving the poor boy, and smacking his hands away.
While I was making them (somewhat terrified at first...me+dough=not good things in the past), I kept thinking of this scene from "Two Weeks Notice" with Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant (hence the title of this post. Sorry, Sandra gets a little cut off by the layout of the page). It's really only the first 2:15 of this clip, but the whole movie is so great. Classic rom-com.
So anyway, I've only really got two pics for you today. Hopefully they'll leave you satisfied and wanting to make some pretzels of your own! I really liked the end result, but I would probably get a little more creative and season them with other things besides just salt if I make them again. This is the picky-pants part, naturally. :) Jeff just prefers plain salted, which were still delicious. These would be equally excellent with some rosemary and garlic, maybe some cinnamon and sugar? The possibilities are endless! They were surprisingly easy to make (remember? I'm dough deficient), just a little time consuming. I started mine late, at about 7:30PM, and they were done by 10PM.
And look how pretty they turned out!
