Time to bake!

Today was bread baking day at my house! Yum! Actually, this happens about twice a week here, to keep my crew supplied with plenty of bread for sandwiches. Several years ago, I invested in a grain mill and a large Bosch mixer, so now I am able to make about 95% of the bread we need. We average about 12 loaves a week-sounds like a lot, but it's not too bad, since I can make six loaves at a time. Besides sandwich bread, I also make most of our other dinner breads and rolls. Best of all, it's 100% whole wheat, so very good for you! I truly love baking most anything and trying out new recipes-it is one of my favorite things to do..I guess because I love the results-they taste so good! My kids don't seem to mind either.

Today was also Luke's first day trying solid food! I don't normally feed my babies solids this early-he's 4 1/2 months-but he keeps trying to shove everything in his mouth, so I thought we'd give it a try. I've never had a baby who truly loved rice cereal like he does! It's amazing! He actually swallowed it, too, instead of spitting it up like my others have done. I have a feeling that as he gets older, he's going to have a hearty appetite! What a messy but cute little guy!


  1. Beautiful bread (we love making it, too!) and sweet baby. :-)

  2. You should put your bread recipe on here and how you do it! I make homemade gluten free bread but have not made whole wheat bread and would love to see how you do it!
