One of my favorite blogs to follow is Living and Gardening in the Ozarks . The author inspired me and I hope to one day be as self sufficient as this wonderful lady is.
Not too long ago, she posted her favorite bread recipe. I've been wanting to make it for quite some time. Well today I finally did it! Here are the results:
It took everything in me not to try and slice into them immediately. The house smelled heavenly. When I finally did cut into a loaf, it was beautiful, and the flavor was incredible. When the kids got home, they gave it a taste test and decided immediately that they didn't want store bought bread ever again. I'm going to have to agree with them.
Once the bread was finished, I decided to use the overripe pineapple someone had given me and make a pineapple upside-down cake, and then decided to make fried chicken for dinner - with mashed potatoes, gravy of course, plus some glazed carrots. Now we are all fat and sassy, and ready to curl up in bed to listen to a show on The Preparedness Radio Network . There are some really great homesteader themed shows on there. I recommend it to any of you out there looking to become more self sufficient. Everything from food preperation/storage, to wilderness survivial, to herbal medicine.... and the list goes on. Really great shows.
Well, now I'm just rambling. I think it's time to turn in for the night. Thanks for stopping by!
