4/12/08-4/19/08 Saturday-Saturday

This week on the last Saturday, we went to the U.C.Davis picnic day! At picnic day some of the things that we saw included, wiener dog races, a demonstration of foil fencing, a nematode exhibit, and the parade.

Here are some pictures:

The one on the top is the wiener dog races, the one in the middle is a cloned cow, and the one on the bottom is some containers with different types of fungus in them.

Also this week we got to make some homemade Phoenician bread. It took up a lot of flower but it tasted really good. What we did was we mixed 6 cups of flour and two teaspoons of salt. Then we mixed some yeast in warm water then poured it into the flour/salt mixture and mixed for a while. When the the mix became dough, we kneaded it for about 10 minutes then put it into a buttered bowl and put a damp towel over it and let it rise for two hours. After the two hours, we put it in the oven at (I think) 450 degrees Fahrenheit and left it in there for about 10 to 15 minutes. When the bread was done, we tried it and it tasted really good.

Here are some pictures of us making the bread:

The one on the top left is the bread after it was done baking, the one on the top right is the bread before it started to rise, the one in the middle is me kneading the dough, and the one on the bottom is the dough after it was done rising.
