Cheering Myself Up



I've been feeling sad and overwhelmed lately. The bread maker got smashed a few days ago (fell off the counter during the kneading cycle) and I started looking into reviews in order to get an idea of which one to buy. Instead of buying a machine, I got inspired by my friends (Ms. Resourceful, SteadyHands, and a couple others). I decided to try baking bread without a machine. Someone gave me a web site for No Knead Crusty Bread and, well, I followed the recipe and I was quite pleased with what came out of the oven. A photo of the results is above. The Captains liked it too.

Mother Earth News is da bomb. My dad's been receiving it since before I was born. It's great if you're into organic living; there's always lots of great tips.

the bread looks great - and the best part of baking bread - apart from the smell as it bakes - is the kneading. You can put all your love into that. You can do it like a meditation. Ironing too, soothing, nice smells, good time to think about stuff.
Much strength winging its way in your direction.
And love
