Don't get too excited over this... I cheated a little... I have a bread machine...and it does all the hard work...but I still get to smell the bread baking. That's almost as good as the eating part....you know? Eating hot homemade bread fresh out of the pan as soon as it is cool enough to cut? With real butter and jelly? drooling...i can't wait for the bread to get baked...how much longer...? Hopefully soon enough for me to have a snack before I go to bed...if not, I will wait for it before I go to bed...it's that good.
Hey...I may have some competition...my #1 son just said to me, "That bread sure smells good, Mom! I can't wait to have a hot piece of bread with some butter and jam".... My #3 son just said the same thing..."that bread sure smells good, Mom!"...
Hubby hasn't chimed in yet...he's not a real homemade bread connoisseur....doesn't know what he's missing. He prefers store bought bread. Something wrong with that...
|I wish it would hurry up and cool!|
|If it tastes as good as it smells...we'll all be happy!|
I'll have to report back tomorrow.
Right now I'm going to go eat some bread.
"She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children rise up and call her blessed; Her husband also, and he praises her: 'Many daughters have done well, but you excel them all.' "Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, but a woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised. Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates." Proverbs 31:27-31
|Yes, It IS GOOD!!!!! YUMMMY!!!|
