Bread Anyone?

But before you can earn that wonderful, soft, warm slice... You have to learn about how our day started! (What, you didn't think I was just going to give it away that easy do ya?)

First, we swam at our complex pool! Yes, I did, too! But you know, pictures come first. LOL

Oh, what's this? Synchronized swimming in the works? Oh no, just playful wading. ;-)
After a good shower, and some downtime, we hit...
For some trailing geraniums. And from the lack of proof, it shows we found NONE! So not happy about that! It was also threatening to rain (drip, drip), so what do we do about that?

Bake some bread, of course! Here's Michelle, eagerly getting the dough started. Isn't she darling in her pink top? We found the recipe from Simple Dollar dot com.

Then it's kneading time...
After letting the dough rise twice, an hour each, and Michelle "slapped" it on the counter 3-4 times, it was time for the 400 deg oven for 30 minutes, but I think 20-25 would have sufficed.
Here's Michelle again, ready for bed, but also quite proud of her baked bread. And why shouldn't she? Look at how great it turned out! It was delicious warm, with butter... *mmmm*

Go on, take a slice, you won't be sorry... You'll want to thank me for sharing!

How was your Thursday?
