Baking in the Nude

and why it isn't a good idea...

I took a sour dough baking class the other weekend with the Queen of Sourdough Yoke Mardewi. Great class, Yoke's sample breads were delicious (as were the jams), and the pizzas we had for lunch made from sour dough bases were seriously good.

We made our own dough in class to bake at home. So I'm having a shower and the oven is preheating and I remembered that the grill tray from the previous evening is still in the oven with the sausage fat from Husby's dinner.

Of course a vegetarian baker does not want her sour dough tainted with sausage fat smoke. I acted with haste and didn't get dressed before removing the offending tray... pulling it straight out of the oven, onto my belly that sticks out far more than I'm used to allowing for.

Let that be a lesson, only bake in the nude if you aren't also baking delicious baby rolls in your own oven. Ooh baby schell, we are really getting excited to meet you soon.


I also advice getting your tongue pierced instead of your belly button, it heals much better once you grow out of it.


  1. I was thinking of you just yesterday and wandering how all of the buns in your ovens are going! So exciting! Not the burn part, that's no good. I too learnt the hard lesson of why you shouldn't cook in your underwear- never again, after i spilt 2 litres of boiling water on my leg. It's inconvenient to have to cook in clothes but I agree- well worth it.

  2. ouch - look out for narrow gaps that you overestimate - especially when one of them is burny or sharp!! (Also note this if you are going to wear your little schell in a sling@@!!).

    Good luck and take care

  3. Ouch. Hope you heal up soon. I suggest wearing an apron. My mom has taught me to always wear an apron in the kitchen.

    I made my first pajama shorts. I actually made two. I wear them to bed every night. I am so happy with them. I should probably make some pants soon as it the weather will start getting cold. Hope you'll come take a look. By the way, I am turning 10 this weekend.
