Since I conquered my fear of homemade chicken stock, thought I would try my hand at another fear. Homemade bread. I picked the simplest recipe in my baking cookbook and went to town. It is easy, relaxing and rewarding, but it does take time. I made 2 loaves of whole wheat easy pan bread. And it turned out really good!
My neighbor Pat was the recipient of the second loaf, I wrapped it up in a fabric napkin and put it in a perfectly shaped basket and put it on his chair in his garage with a couple of my cooking magazines. Pat is awesome. He’s in his late 70’s I think, and was born and raised in the house next door. When his parents passed away, he moved into his childhood home. He has a lot of stories to tell of the old days. I really enjoy having him as my neighbor.
My eats today were my usual oatmeal with peanut butter and banana for breakfast. Leftover chicken noodle soup for lunch:
A veggie crudite for a snack:
A slice of bread with butter of course. And lettuce wraps for dinner:
