Mix well with your hands until a soft and elastic dough. (If you prefer you can knead a few minutes in the food processor until you can form a ball). You can see here the step by step will be much easier :) Divide the dough into 2 parts. Book one (will the white matter) and cover with a cloth. Divide the other into 2 parts. In one, together cocoa 15g mixed with 1 tablespoon of sour soup, and knead by hand or robot to stay with homogeneous color.

Form 1 chorizo with a mass ball light brown, with 21cm (long shape), flatten and wrap it about herself. To form one dark mass of sausage in the same length and extend slightly, not too broad. Scroll the dark mass above the light brown chorizo (no need to cover everything). It forms a sausage with white matter slightly longer and extend width sufficient to cover the brown sausage. Repeat the operation until the end. Roll each sausage until it reaches about 42 cm, ie twice the length of the shape.

Texas Mom Says She’ll Home School Her Child After The ‘Truly Frightening’ Thing a Teacher Told Her

Mrs. Vines, in a stunning interview on Glenn Beck’s radio program, said that a few days after her daughter first snapped at her, she started pronouncing a word incorrectly. Vines corrected her daughter “in the most gentle way possible,” but her daughter broke down crying, saying “that’s how she was taught, and I can’t tell her something different because I’m a mommy, not a teacher.”
Horrified, she asked her daughter,  “Is somebody telling you this at school?”
“She said, ‘Yes, I’m only allowed to learn from my teacher,’” Vines remarked.

10 Quintessential Things You'll Find in Every Paris Loft

Frankly, the French just do everything better than most of people: Dress, eat, and, depending on who you ask, work. We can also add "live" to that list, especially when talking about Paris. The apartments in the City of Light, even when tiny, just have a certain chic quality. While scrolling through Airbnb (plotting the French getaway of our dreams), we counted everything we can't resist about Parisian lofts.

A story of abuse, hope, and healing Read My Story

I went through 6 years of abuse. I was married to an Englishman from Horton Somerset. October of  2005 I was beaten, and this was a big one, and the last time he would hit me. I was suffering for years at the hand of  Edward Jon Layzell. What was so painful his family knew, and so did mine, but no one helped. And even with my newborn baby, nothing.

But on October 15th 2005 I was beaten so bad I was sent to hospital. He was beating me while holding my baby girl in one arm. I was knocked out, and something told me to get up, or I would never  be seen again, or both of us. He was acting so crazy, so I do not know how I did it. I got up. I went to the door and I could not hear anything. All I could hear is my breathing. I went across the road to a friends house.

I did not think when I crossed the road of being it by a car, but I made it and when I got to the door she looked at me, and then I scream, "Help me! He has the baby!" My neighbor grabbed my arm and pulled me in. I was so lucky she had just arrived home with her friends.

She got me to the table, and gave me a large bowl because I was bleeding so much. My mouth was so full of blood they thought he punched my teeth out. I was crying, and ask to get the baby. I was afraid he was going to hurt her. The men from the house went to mine, but they were told by the police to stay put and wait for them.

The police arrive and saw me, and they asked what happened. Still bleeding, I asked just please get my baby. I am afraid he will hurt her.  The police went to my home to get my baby. I was scared he was hurting her and I prayed so hard that she was okay. I could see by their looks my neighbor and her friend I must have beaten bad . . .
