My Day at Home
The littlest was sick. He took a sip from his brother's cup last Friday and started to get sick by Saturday. By Sunday he was full blown into the virus with high temperatures and general un-wellness. He was sleeping and not eating a lot. So I had no other choice but to stay home. So I shook off the guilt and prepared myself for my home duties and mothering hat.
Generally I only have one day free and that's Friday. Even then I have the little one with me and I have a bit of me time in the morning. But I digress, today I dropped off the other three and came straight back home. First off, I did the laundry (of course, a must first thing) and then had a bit of breakfast and he was asleep. I finished off the dishes from last night (Urghh, we actually normally have dishes in the sink). Anyway, I was pretty sure that mums make and bake things when they are at home and I've been dreaming of gozleme for a while so I prepped up the dough. Lucky it was nice and sunny outside and I added a bit more yeast to my yeast mix. I used this recipe from Taste. It makes four decent size gozleme.
I'd actually never tried pan frying my gozleme before so I gave it a go. Normally I bake it like my mum-in-law does with her dough stuff but I found out that pan-frying is so much faster but you have to be careful not to burn it. Turn the heat down low to medium and use a spatula to flip your goodies. I made spinach and cheese, ham and cheese and spinach and feta and finally za'atar.
I was going to cook this za'atar one flat but I couldn't slide it into the pan so I had to fold it in half like the others and cook it. I must say I am quite impressed with myself.
Now, to see how long my floors stay clean until the kids get home and have dinner. Grrrrrr.
If you've got some great gozleme recipes or fillings let me know!
