Mitchie and i made some bread this weekend. He is a great helper, at least for the first 5-10 minutes. :o) But, look how intense he is while he is helping. He did a good job and he has been asking for and eating the bread he made, which is great because we have been having some food issues around here as of late.
i found this challah bread in a bag recipe at this great blog, Blue Yonder. It was easy to make and nice to incorproate the kids in the process. And it turned out beautifully. I get really excited about the bread rising, like giggly excited. I have had a few that did not rise well and it is a bummer. i know i am a dork but there are so many things about breadmaking that i love...the smell, the feel of the ball of dough...the rise!!! I wonder why i don't do this more often?
