I made a loaf of bread using the recipe Sam I Am shared at her blogspot - farmgirlsam.

How did it turn out?

Pretty darn good if I say so myself.  Thanks for the recipe!

Hubby and I were to be meeting up at 7am this morning, and riding the Triple Nickle Ride today.  Last night those plans changed.  It takes great concentration to ride a curvy, twisty road, with hills and surprises at the top.  He came home in pain from the dentist last night.  That's okay.  I think we'd rather go do that ride, and stay the night vs. ride the motorcycle back late, and so tired.  It's about a 60 mile ride, but first you have to get there.  Getting there takes about 3 hours. I had accounted for the loss of gardening time for this ride too, but taking advantage of being home now.

Guess who is driving now?  Youngest just went to the "Big City" and obtained her driver's permit.  Last one to learn to drive.

Congrats to "Youngest"! :) I only got my license when I was 31. I lived in the city pretty much until then so had no use for it. I think it made me very appreciative of being in a car and on the road. That's a nice looking loaf! I made bread too this morning...gotta love that smell! When will you guys be doing the road trip after all?

So glad you liked the me it is a no-fail recipe which is what I like! LOL! I'm not the greatest cook but I try to emulate the great ones. Yours turned out beautiful!

Rain, the road trip won't be any time soon. My shoulder needs looked at, and taking ibuprofen has upset my stomach. So I can't take that, nor motrin. I have no other natural "pain killers" for inflammation or muscle pain, so I have to struggle through it. As for Youngest. She turns 16 this coming December.

Thanks Sam I Am, the family loved it.

Is there anything in the word better than fresh baked bread? Personally, I think not - unless it's a slice of fresh baked bread slathered with a nice chunk of butter. LOL
Prayers for all of us this coming week, that it be a wonderful week, and a safe one too.
God bless.

Oh-oh! Looks like your car is going to be commandeered again! That loaf of bread looks wonderful! Hope you get good news from your doctor on that shoulder.

Kristina said...

RB, thanks for the prayers. We need them this week.

Susan, no help from the doctor today. I'll be posting. But yes, she is a new driver now. Hope I'm up for it.
