Finally I can bake again. I am so happy that I don`t have to bake cookies.
I love to bake bread, it makes me happy and so I thought why not bake some rolls to be eaten with a nice hot bowl of soup.
We love potato soup and like to sprinkle fresh chives over the top. The only problem is that I don`t have fresh chives at the moment.
Not in the Garden because its freezing, not on the windowsill because I am unable to keep it alive.
Yes I kill herbs. In my kitchen.
Then I remembered that I had a cup of frozen chives, they are not as good as the fresh ones but I think they are good enough for what I had in mind.
So after a trip into the snow, we had our potato soup and we had chives. just not as usual.They are delicious and have a nice chive flavor to them, give them a try and tell me what you think. I am so proud of them I’m sending this over to YeastSpotting.
