Having access to Panera, bread machines, and grocery stores we have forgotten the fun of making home-made bread from good old-fashioned yeast and flour! 20 years ago my hubby and I started making bread from scratch after ordering our FREE cookbook from Fleischmann’s Yeast Company. Below is a link for bread recipes that includes Fleischmann’s Yeast.
It took at least four hours for the entire process but WOW! what an experience for the family. We are trying so hard to limit our television time and it’s amazing what creative things you can come up with when you are not glued to the television.
Hmmmmm…….. I was proof reading this and I had to add that this simple task is an answer to prayer. As you know from previous posts we are praying prayer circles around our marriage and family. Thank you Jesus for giving my husband the time, energy, and the change of pace to use his creative juices in this direction. I see our small steps towards unity. What is your “thing?” What do you have up your sleeve, or from your past that could bring the family together in unity to laugh and enjoy each other? Okay – I know I’m a touchy feely kind of gal but the picture with the bread glowing in the oven just made me smile and tear up. “Jesus may our home be filled with bountiful blessings and Your love!” If you watch the video of Nina ( this is the entire video of how to make bread) at the very, very end you will see her added touch to the bread! Not gonna’ tell ya’! You gotta watch it! 🙂 Tee Hee
Let me know if you get the bread fever and decide to try your hand at making bread the old-fashioned way!
