Or my memory at least LOL I can't remember anything lately. I was on the way home from a trip to Joann's and thought of something that I wanted to write in the blog. Well, my mind wandered to something else and then I thought, oh wait a minute, what did I want to say on the blog? I could not for the life of me remember what it was LOL I think of all sorts of things to write about throughout the day, but when I sit down to write, I can't remember any of them. Y'all have missed all kinds of great posts because of my poor memory ; ) My mind races from one subject to the next, and then thinking of everything I need to do. I often walk into a room to do something and when I get there, I can't remember what I went in there to do! I guess it is Mommy brain or old age, but whatever it is, I don't like it! I need to start carrying a notebook around with me to jot things down when I think of them LOL
Isabella has been asking to bake homemade bread all week. I used to make it all the time, but have been lazy about it lately. So, after I put Ava down for her nap, we ground the wheat berries and made bread : )
I make mine half whole wheat flour and half white flour. I also added some flax seeds. The bread is healthy, but not as dense as a brick. I used to do it all by hand, but kneading 4+ loaves of bread is exhausting, so dh bought me this Bosch mixer. It makes baking bread oh so easy : ) Which means I really have no excuse for not doing it more often.
Fresh yeast LOL Samuel lovingly told me "Mom, it looks just like your fat belly!" Well, thanks so much Samuel : / Don't you love how kids tell the truth? LOL
I had enough dough to make 5 or 6 loaves, but I made 4 and let the kids play with the rest. They made their own creations. Excuse my messy house in the background : )
Here is the bread before.....
and here is the bread after. One of the loaves spilled over the edge a little *ooops*
They have already eaten 2 whole loaves, plus *their* bread. Fresh bread doesn't last long in my house LOL
BTW I still can't remember what I wanted to say LOL
