Domesticated

Every week I make bread. Store bought bread now tastes like cardboard compared to my slices of heaven.

Grinding the bones to make our bread.

Wheat kernels turn into flour. Magic!



Ingredients! (uh yeah, plus the flour)




Using my mom's handy dandy dough mixer. Round and round we go! (It even kneads it for you!)



A tiny-handed taste test.




It's alive!!


*shhhh...they're sleeping*



Where they reach their highest potential




Awww it's like a little family.
(Lean close, you can almost smell the freshly baked goodness)


Voila! Not perfect but that's just the way I like them.
(Kinda like my kids.)

Sigh. Jealous of your access to the wheat grinder, the wheat and the mixer. Oh, and the mother. My bread just doesn't turn out quite as good.

You know my birthday is coming up and I'm pretty sure it's completely possible to mail bread. What's up with taunting us with this delicious bread and not giving us a recipe? Not that I have a grinder....but later this summer I will be home and I think I'm going to need to learn how to make this.

Lindsay said...

Ha ha, I was thinking this post was very Our Best Bite-ish.

Awww...I hope you didn't think I was trying to copy you!

But then again to be compared to your blog Sara is a pretty nice compliment! :)
