Winter Projects

Today I tried a new recipe from Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book. I found a copy at a second hand store for five bucks and I have tried three recipes now. Everything has been so good! Today I made Crunchy Millet Bread. I wish I could share the recipe, but it's probably not legal. I checked around and couldn't find it published on the web, so I guess you will have to go out and find your own copy of the book.


The loaf "proofing."


Freshly sliced. I ate it before the photo.

The millet does indeed add a nice crunch, but it would still be good for sandwich bread. I enjoyed it with butter and Spanish Garbanzo Stew over quinoa. It was very tasty!




In other news, I am doing some charity crochet for two groups (see links to the left). Currently I am making squares for Crochet-A-Rainbow. It's a project for Australian flood victims. It has been fun to play with different colors.


I have 12 1/2 squares done now.


The following is one of my favorite color combos:


Despite all this indoor stuff, I made it out into the garden for an hour or so and got some much needed clean-up work done too!
Tomorrow I visit Ankeny NWR for the first time. Stay tuned....
