I was home this morning, so decided to do something fun. I also did laundry, and watched a neighbor's mother for awhile.
I decided to have fun and make some bread. I usually make my own whole wheat bread. I mill my whole wheat flour and we think it tastes really good. Now, this might not be that unusual, but bread baking is something I've just done the last couple of years. When we were first married I made some bread and Howard told me to never do it again. (If any of you had tried it, you'd have told her the same thing!-note by Howard) I went for almost 50 years and didn't try it again. I've watched him and our daughters make bread for years. I thought to myself, I can do that!
I also wanted to try some pretzel bread. Some of my daughters and daughters-in-law have made it and it looked so good, so I tried my hand at that today also!
This is my whole wheat bread ready to put into the bowl and rise.
Ready to rise
