Bread

First apologies for the appaling picture quality but I somehow wanted to show you the bread I made on the weekend. Having not made bread since I was a little girl and had mummy's know how to guide me on the way I was a little concerned as to how it may turn out. I also had foolishly decided that I was to serve this to my dinner guests as I had not form of biscuit to go with my cheese.
It was great fun making it, feeling the lovely dough between your fingers is just wonderful and working the dough as you knead it makes both your hands and head feel better. Kneading while thinking is something not to underestimated. And the pride when it came out of the oven, was hollow when knocked from the bottom and tasted like bread!
I used a recipe from The Imaginary Cafe and it was both simple and successful and so now highly recommended from myself also. I then tried a slight variation on Sunday having discussed with sister recommendations for making it and purchasing a loaf tin. I am yet to try my next loaf but it looks better and I am looking forward to giving it a shot.
So there we are, all my quietness and then all I've been up to is making bread!

That reminds me I should make some bread. I used to do it all the time, it saved a fortune and was much nicer. I'll make some this afternoon

glad it worked out! I should have mentioned, I'm pretty sure it's a Laurel's Kitchen recipe - ( http://www.amazon.com/Laurels-Kitchen-Handbook-Vegetarian-Nutrition/dp/0915132257 ).
