Yesterday was one of those wonderful days when you realize that your kids are happy just being next to you. Forget the fancy toys, computer games, tv, etc… sometimes kids do just like to hang out with you.
How did we spend that time? Well, I forgot to buy bread for the school lunch the next day so I decided what better project than to make bread, a team building experience for sure… My great Aunt used to make 6 loaves at a time, such a lost art.
So like many generations before us, we pulled up our sleeves and got to work kneading. Who needs the gym with that kind of arm workout? While the bread was rising, we decided to dive into souffle making, the chickens won’t stop laying so we have way too many eggs:-) What a fun pre-dinner exercise.
Enjoy our photos below- the kids had fun taking pics along the way…The earrings are in there just because I can’t stop making them:-)
We found this great recipe on the cookingbread.com site, we made the Country White bread. There are many more recipes to try there so be sure to visit their site. I really want to try out some of the flat bread recipes, they look delicious, of course the Brown Sugar Cinnamon Buns look great too (they have to be so much better than those ready made ones you get in the supermarket).
Our experience: We had only one slight mishap, I turned off the oven when I took out the souffle, so the bread went in and sat for 20min in a cooling oven. Did not seem to hurt it at all. I simply turned the oven back on and the baking continued:-) What a delicious sight those loaves were this morning, it is only 3pm and we’ve finished one already…YUM
