More bread...

Made some changes (and found a video that gave me a little more direction) and my second ever loaf of bread turned out great (brag, brag, brag)

Right now I have the third loaf raising - Petey (my little white dog) does not seem too happy with that. He will only get within a couple feet of the table, sniffing the air with eyes wide, and then slinks away to growl and woof at it from a safe distance. Maybe I'll wait until my brother has a couple slices before I try it ...

My brother, bless his intrepid little soul, did actually eat several slices of my creation. And I admit, once one managed to break through the crust, it wasn't bad. Really.

First entry

Posted 05-20-2008 at 03:36 PM by ostarella (Me own blog...)

Trying out the blog thingy. I always have trouble with these because most of what I would write about would probably bore the socks of most people. Writing about life as I know it certainly would. Today was an exception. I had no internet most of the day, so that was exciting.
