Thank goodness we're making bread again! Didn't realize how much I missed the lovely aroma. This one even smelled good before baking. It looked daunting with that page-long list of ingredients, and 3 pages of instructions, but watching the video gave me renewed confidence. I even did the kneading by hand. I needed that (no pun intented, LOL!). Hands-on time with bread dough is so comforting.
Here are the pictures:

And of course I couldn't fine prune lekvar at the grocery,
so made it myself.
|Except for this little art project in my pantry.|

|Heating pad helped with the rise.|
|I wasn't about to cut holes in my towels,|
but big clips worked great. We usually
use them to close chip bags.
|The loaves in their little slings looked so cute!|
|Didn't have sesame seeds, but I did add some salt|
that we brought back from Hawaii
| With cream cheese, a smear of the leftover lekvar,|
and a sprinkle of walnuts! Yum!
This week's shoe - a man's dress shoe in the middle of the Buford Highway ramp. I must admit that yesterday one of my facebook friends posted a comment about seeing a shoe in the road (no picture) and I almost blew my cover. Still flying under the radar, nobody in my real world knows I'm here. One day, I'll have to come clean.
