Back To Hiking In The Woods

We decided this morning not to let a few snakes and alligators get to us rattlesnake hardened Montanan’s—off we went to hike our four miles in the Cedar Key Scrub Preserve.  Saw nothing but a few birds and some animal tracks.  

Several days ago Judy from The Patchwork Times posted a link for a bread recipe.  The recipe, Dee’s Health Bread came from the website Allrecipes.  Now, I’m not your normal bread maker—have never liked kneading bread.  I did use the Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day cookbook a lot to make bread but just haven’t ever gotten into the yeast and kneading thing.  The dough for the breads made using the Artisan recipes is kept in the refrigerator until ready to use, no kneading necessary.  RV refrigerators are not big enough to keep a large container full of bread dough—I tried it last year!

The recipe Judy used sounded so good I decided to give it a try—it is without a doubt the best bread!  I didn’t have any cracked wheat so I used a little more sunflower seeds and flaxseed.  And having only one oversized loaf pan I had to improvise a little.  Making half the recipe gave us three loaves of beautiful, tasty bread.  We gave one loaf to our neighbors Blair and Evelyn who always come out with dog treats for Emmi when we walk by.  The first loaf looked like this before I remembered to take a photo:


I cooked the second two loaves side by side on a cookie sheet—a little deformed looking but still delicious—a keeper recipe.

Spent some time reading in the sun, it was a little cool and windy today but sitting in the warmth of the sun felt good.  The rest of the afternoon I spent sewing for the first time since leaving home.  At my last quilt retreat I made most of the blocks for a flannel quilt—today I finished making the blocks.
