Bread and Laundry...






Yes...I baked Bread! Never have used an Easier recipe than this one. It's a crisp, Italian type bread with sourdough overtones. I call it a "pully" bread. Stretchy. It is Good! I never knew that salt, water, flour and yeast could make such a good bread and you don't knead it either! Couldn't be easier. This was a four loaf recipe. I baked one loaf and the other three are still sitting in the refrigerator, in dough form.


We didn't do much this past weekend except cook and do laundry...Hubby made a batch of spagetti for the coming week and I worked on the laundry...my Most Bestest Job of running a household!Hahaaa....geeeez. It's alive and it breeds in the dirty clothes hamper...it does!


Well, here's to another hot week here in Texas. Hope you all are staying cool where ever you may be. Have a great day!


Recipe Here!

Wow, Donna, that looks sooo good!! I don't "knead" it either. LOL

I sure hope you guys get some rain! We're watching for Irene; she sure messed up Puerto Rico. :(

Have a wonderful day!!

Auntie said...

Excellent observation, there! Dirty laundry DOES breed, doesn't it?!?!?!

I often think, there can't be that much being accumulated by just 2 people in this household. Can't!

-Hehhhhhh- Who knew? It breeds!

Which we must look upon, with the same "wonderment," as how individual socks *dissssssssssapear* in the washing machine! Wonderment. Simply wonderment!

Wow! Wisdom 101 and so early, on a Monday too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! >,-)

Laundry used to be the epicenter of my universe. Orderly, and never done, it gave my life meaning.

Now, I'm just sick and tired of the Onsie sox...I mean "really" how many can the washer eat?

Printed the recipe! Thanks,
Citymom

Jenny said...

Donna said...
