I have been baking bread every day for some time now. I love the fresh bread and the lovely aroma hanging in the air. When I come in my door it is the first thing to greet me.
I have lately tried my hand at sourdough bread. I have a starter going now and have baked with it a few times. The texture is quite different as well as the flavor. Nevertheless it is delicious. I have all kinds of goodies planned to bake soon. One night Brandon, one of my grandsons, and I stayed up most of the night doing the once a month cooking thing. We had a blast and he has helped me plan what we will bake next.
Now that I am back into the bread making, I am going to try homemade hot pockets, chocolate rolls, cinnamon rolls (which I made often when my children were home) and all sorts of good things to eat! Now that I am retired and with much more time on my hands than I've had in a while, I am ready to do some experimenting. So what if I do put on a few pounds....grandmas are supposed to be fat!
I have a front deck that stretches from one side of my house to the other and a tall oak that didn't suffer too much damage from the ice storm. I am looking forward to warm weather, sitting out in the shade with a tall, ice cold glass of lemonade, a homemade pepperoni pizza hot pocket, my laptop and a grandchild and lordie, I will swear I have already died and this must be Heaven!!! Be sweet and be good.
