At last I turned out 2 beautiful loaves of bread -- & quite tasty too! I used Hodgson Mills' white flour and also there yeast and a recipe from the Barefoot Contessa cookbook. It raised beautifully in an hour and then another hour in the bread pans. I think my favorite part (besides eating it) is smelling it while it's baking. My mixer with dough hooks came in handy too so I didn't have to do so much kneading. I'll definitely be doing this more often. I promised Sage that the next time he came, I'd make cinnamon rolls.
All 3 g'kids spent the night last night and they just left. So now I'm having a grilled cheese sandwich (homemade bread) and a Dr. Pepper for lunch. I've been trying not to drink soda but I think I deserve it today.
My afternoon is being spent trying to design a shopping bag for my 100th blog posting (actually it will probably be my 120th). One of my new year's resolutions was to do something that helps the environment everyday this year so I thought a shopping bag would be perfect for today's deed. So keep a watchout in the next couple of days. It's always such a thrill for me to get a comment on my blog so this is my way of seeing if anyone is actually reading it.
Have a great Sunday!
