I wake up and think, HUMMM how can I make this house smell even more delicious?
Well, I did it again. I ventured into the Bread world and found this recipe from thepioneerwomen.com and fell in love with the results. SO DID MY FAMILY.
Now this is about a 4 hour process of sweat and love for the family. It takes time and patience to get through the Rising Stages of the bread making, but when it's all said and done: AMAZING.
Just look at the picture.
Here's how it went down.
When my husband came home from work, this loaf was starring him in the face. All my children rushed to his side, for they were longing for this moment. THEN it happened. Fingers were flying in the pan uncontrollable. Bread was being ripped, torn, shredded everywhere. Mouths were comping, sounds of laughter where heckling in my kitchen.
I screamed, I shouted, I ran to get the camera, and before the loaf was devoured, I crept in like a National Geographic Photographer and I snapped the picture.
I barely made it in time, but I did.
Thankfully, there was still some remains for me to enjoy.
It's good stuff.
As a side note, I want to tell you a cute story about the kitchen smells in my house. Sometimes we don't pay attention to them because they are familiar to us as we cook and enjoy our food. Well, there is a friend of my son that lives in our neighborhood that came over the other day. We waltzes right into our house just after we made breakfast and asked, "How come your house always smells like food?" He walked over to our table and looked at the remains. We offered him some snacks, of course, and then he ran away to play. A little while later, he went up to my husband and said, "So, what are we having for lunch?" I just just got a kick out of this little guy.
Who doesn't appreciate the goodness smells of the kitchen. I know I am so enjoying warming up the house to wonderful, sweet aromas of a mother's love and heart.
