Baking Day

Today is baking day at the house. Not sure why, just decided today was a good day to bake! I'm making a batch (or two, if they turn out well) of whole-wheat french bread rolls. I got the recipe from here. So far, so good! They're in the first rise stage. Mind you, I don't knead my dough. I take the easy way out and use my bread machine to do that for me.

After the rolls go in the oven, I'm making whole wheat bread. I found this recipe on Money Saving Mom's website. I've done bread before, but I've never been satisfied with it. I tried her
recipe for the bread, and it was fantastic! It tasted good, and most of all importance to me, it slices very well! Here's her recipe : Bread

I'm thinking I might try to make a commitment to making my own bread. A loaf of bread can cost us anywhere from $1.50 (on sale) to $2.00. I can buy my flour, and all other ingredients, for around $6. And that $6 worth of ingredients will yield me many many loaves of bread. It's not hard to do, and it is probably healthier for me!

Today Andrew ate a PB&J sandwich for lunch. But it wasn't just any 'ol PBJ. It was on homemade bread, with homemade blueberry jam I made last summer. Now if I could only grow my own peanuts, and make my own peanut butter.....
