those rainy days

Ever since I saw this post on her blog, I’ve been super hungry for fresh, homemade, bread (next time I think were going to have to use the WHO bread recipe).  I use to bake bread all the time, but that was in a bread machine that got lost during a move.

1. there’s nothing else to do except read books and play games (all can be done while the bread is rising)
2. you have to stay inside which means you get those yummy bread smells traveling through your nose all day.
3. when the house already needs cleaned, why not make a little more of a mess

Yes, rainy days are perfect for baking bread if you ask me.

Oh yes, the perfect rainy day activity/snack is homemade bread.  Both of the girls have dubbed rainy days as “bread makin’ days” and I have to fully agree with them.  I do see lots of bread makin’ in our future!

    OH yum!! I love love bread… I used to love baking on rainy days too. I think it brings out the secret chef in everyone 🙂
    I have no clue how to make good bread.

    My dad gave me a knob of dough from what he was working on when I was five and simply said “Now here’s how you kneed it.” Then he proceeded to show me. I’ve loved baking ever since.
    And you’re right baking on a rainy day lifts everyone’s spirits

      Thank you for visiting Nancy!

      I love that you said your Dad, my Dad in the kitchen meant he was looking for the phonebook to order pizza.

      Now my Mom on the other hand would bake cookies with us and always gave us our own dough to play with.

        Honey I’ve been enjoying your blog and had become worried when you hadn’t posted for several weeks last month. (Like I have alot of right to talk about that!!) Anyway your knitting needle roll was the first thing I ever sewed so you and your blog will always have a place in my heart!
