mmmm...

Okay, I'm embarrassed to admit that at 35 I haven't made bread from scratch...ever. I can hear all your shocked guffaws. It's true, I'm intimidated by homemade bread. I break out in a sweat thinking about yeast. Loral can whip out 12 loaves while watching t.v. and teaching school. mmmm...yummy. She's awesome.


Well, d9 and I decided to remedy the situation tonight. Yeast doesn't make me nearly so twitchy when my 9 yr old is in charge of it. I can always blame it on her if the bread is bad.


Here d9 is commenting on the stinkiness of yeast...

D9 and I had such a great time making bread. We are going to try to do it at least once a week. We used this french bread recipe from Breadworld. Ken was so impressed with us gals. He's taking half a loaf to work to eat with leftover broccoli soup which I also made from scratch. Thanks Krista for that recipe!
