Fresh Bread

 

That’s it!  I keep hearing so much lately about homemade bread…I’m breaking out my stainless steel bread bowl…the one that’s all pock marked with dents from marbles being whirled around in it back in the ’80s. 

 

Is there a better fragrance in a home in the fall? 

 

 

I love the feel of working with the dough…kneading by hand…

 

 

 …gently coaxing wonderful ingredients in, like honey, wheat bran, oat bran, wheat germ…

 

 

…and making a simple meal of it while it’s warm and fresh.  A  little butter…generous swirls of Apple Butter… 

 

  Thank You, Lord.

  1. Those look DELICIOUS! I’ve tried making some homemade bread, but it turned out pretty dense, not light and fluffy. Probably because I wasn’t kneading it enough??? But yours looks amazing!

    Often the problem is not just kneading it enough but not leaving it long enough to prove (don’t know if that is an english english word or not or whether you use it in America too but it is the time for the dough to rise). No matter how long it takes leave it to double in size, if the house is cool it could take a long time, I have even left them in the fridge overnight to cook in the morning.

    Best place to make bread is definitely along the Rockies, my bread was so light when I lived there due to the altitude.

    You’ve been quiet of late. Have you been traveling, or do you have a lot of other stuff on your heart? Micaela and I came up with an idea last week in regard to you and bread making. I’ll let her spring it on you 🙂 DM

  6. I see you are like me and have not posted in a while. I just wanted you to know that I have missed you. I hope you are blessed this Thanksgiving. You are a blessing to me.
