Yesterday we tried our hand at baking bread. Yes, Julie in CO. I used packets cause my unopened jar of yeast expired. My blogger friend Julie inspired me to bake my own bread….she said it was super easy and even posted a whole entry with a recipe and directions.
It was pretty east, although I was worried I would mess up the proces of letting it rise etc.
I have to say I don’t think I would have tried this without my Kitchen Aide….my MIL gave me her extra one and I LOVE IT!
The finished product and I have to say YUMMMM and best when it is cool enough to touch….half was gone in no time. We need to make butter next. It is a little on the heavy side….no clue what would cause this. I am going to bake more…if for nothing else that the house smelled WONDERFUL!
onto other news……
how cool is this picture
I think it is my car mirror reflection
seeing them read makes me happy :)
I saw on another homeschool mom blog…she gives her kids poker chips for reading…the more they read the more chips they get…they redeem the chips for tv or computer time….BINGO! That is JUST what I needed…..now to find the chips…any excuse for a trip to Tarjay :)
