Lately I’ve had this desire to learn to bake bread. I love the smell of it in the house, and eating it with some jam or butter fresh out of the oven! This time around I wanted to be old-school, so I didn’t take out the mixer, but instead kneaded the dough by hand. Since it was a warm day, the bread rose well, and tasted delicious!
I have two bread books from the library also, so I’ll probably be doing some experimenting! I was also thinking about how it’s interesting that I sometimes really enjoy many activities that would be stereotyped for homemakers: knitting, sewing, cooking, baking, cleaning…I really don’t know how it happened, but I can’t help it!
