If you don’t like baking or cooking, you can also try any other activities, make sure you find out what that hobby is and do it, it helps any entrepreneurs stay sane ^_^.

  7. Remove from the pot into a serving dish ready to serve.

  8. Slice the bread and spread margarine on each slice. Toast the bread slices until they are a nice golden brown. You can use a toaster, but my favorite is using a pan (like a chapati pan ^_^) or a smaller frying pan and toasting the bread on it.
