Well, I've wanted to do a post for quite a while on bread baking, so I suppose today's the day! For many years now I have been grinding my own wheat into our every day flour...for ALL our baking needs. I haven't bought store bought bread of any type for so long I don't remember. Initially, I started researching and realized the health benefits. So, I invested in an electric grinder, bought 50 lbs. of wheat and began my journey.
I make all our bread....of every sort.
Although we still love the health benefits from eating fresh ground whole wheat, we've truly come to love the taste.
Last night, my fifteen year old had a couple of buddies over, so that's three large teenage boys, my husband, my daughter and myself. I made a batch of dough, and out of that dough, I made a large batch of bread sticks, two large pizzas, and two loaves of bread.
The boys very very happy:)
Ignore that dirty oven:(
Almost all pizza devoured in a short amount of time:)))
Although it is quite an investment up front, over the long run, making bread from scratch is very economical, and oh so yummy!!!! If you've never researched it, I would highly reccomend it, you'll probably be surprised what all you find out. Have a lovely evening sisters!!
Isn't it gorgeous? My son FINALLY formally proposed to his girlfriend of four years...and we're all delighted!
The date has been set for May 19, 2012!! Plenty of time to take lots of deep breaths and dream, dream, dream. We're so excited.....WE may not be able to contain ourselves for an ENTIRE year!!!!! Well, I guess I should just chill out...it'll be here before we know it!!
I am a very happy wife of 32 years. A mother to three awesome sons and one beautiful daughter. I have homeschooled for 24+ years. I have a deep love for all things old. People, art, material things, lost crafts. I am a crazy lover of The Lord, always seeking to draw closer to Him.
My blog title came from my husband who started calling me Sunshine the day we met. Over the years the name was shortened to Shine and sometimes I wonder if he really even knows my given name!!! I am not an eloquent writer, not gifted that way as so many bloggers are....I just have a heart to share things with my friends and family that are far away yet so very dear to my heart<3.
