There's some of the Boule dough in the cooler for tomorrow. Today we will eat yesterday's rye loaf and white loaf. No new bread? Nope, we have run out of yeast. That's some feat actually as we had about a quarter pound when we started this endeavor. I don't even want to think about how much bread we've actually made (and eaten!) in the past week or so... But we needed so many different breads this week...cinnamon rolls and dinner rolls and ciabatta panini for Saturday dinner and rolls for meatball sandwiches for last night's dinner and hot dog rolls. And every day bread. We would have probably not had meatball sandwiches and cinnamon rolls if we hadn't bought this book, but we love panini on Saturday and store bought ciabatta cost mucho dinero. So we're buying fewer loaves of processed bread - only one this week for Bud's breakfast sandwiches. And that is a step in the right direction. (Especially since we throw in whole wheat and don't tell him...hahahahaha. Shhh, now, blog, don't you blow our little secret!)
So instead of bread, today must need include completion and filing of tax returns, and some schooling for these children. What can we do on rainy, breezy (we are currently in Nebraska where "breezy" is defined as winds in the 10 - 20 mph range!), chilly Spring day in Nebraska?
Oh, I know! MATH! And some spelling. Like Scrabble and Yahtzee... Or maybe Family Farm...
"THEN Jesus was led by the spirit into the desert, to be tempted by the devil. And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterwards he was hungry. And the tempter coming said to him: If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread. Who answered and said: It is written, Not in bread alone doth man live, but in every word that proceedeth from the mouth of God." Matthew 4:1-4
Welcome! The most important bread is the Bread of Life. I am Catholic and do my best to know, understand and live what that means that I might "know Him, love Him and serve Him." My husband, Bud, and I have been married for 24 years and we have seven children. Because of his job, we travel the country in an RV with five of them, learning as we go.
