Baking Bread
















Tonight Lucy and I baked bread from scratch. We had fun in the process but Lucy gagged on the finished product. I guess she's used to a more chemically taste to her baked goods. Hopefully we can ease into the au-natural taste of homemade bread (although next time i'll remember the salt). I think it turned out pretty good, and will refine the recipe by replacing a cup of the whole wheat flour with white flour (see if lucy likes the texture better).
The marks on her face are (I think) remnants of "dog day" at preschool. They show up much better in photos. She would not let me wash them off.









It was a pretty laid back relaxing night and having no real plans, and the evening with mostly just the two of us made the night seem longer.

Great job baking your own bread! I started attempting baking our own a few months ago and just now found a recipe that we both love. Here it is:

Good grief, you're baking home made bread and I barely acknowledged my children today. You make me look like I need a social worker. Hey, you're a SW...

I think it's terrific that you include Lucy in so many things people think "oh, a toddler cannot do that" You include Lucy in everything and lead by example which is what great parenting is all about!

The real question is, where did you get that mixing bowl!

isnt' the bowl awesome! My mom got it for me from a garden store (I think) around 10 years ago.
