WOW! I think I have discovered the best bread ever. Dang it is good. ::Skippyhappydance::
I have been making yeast breads for many years but this recipe is by far my favorite of any I have ever made.
Introducing George's Light Rye Bread
[Sucky picture but Blogger is doing it's usual junk again. Sigh]
Pooldad says this is the best bread he has ever tasted and I wholeheartedly agree. It has a nice crust with a chewy interior and mild crumb. It is not dense at all. The picture just does not do it justice. I swear if I could figure out a way to make it lower in sodium I would be approaching 125 lbs by the end of the week. I could eat a whole loaf in one afternoon it is THAT good.
I found the recipe here - and I don't know who George is, but a big "Howdy do" and "Thank you!" to him. He looks like a sweet ol' guy too. :D
As soon as I can figure out the picture mess with Blogger I have a bunch more to show you of other stuff. I did download Picassa to alleviate some of the problems, but I suspect even that is going to give me trouble. So if any of you start to receive oodles of my pictures PLEASE let me know immediately - and I apologize in advance. In any case you will get quite an eyefull and a few giggles from some horrendously bad photography [on my part]. I never erase anything.
I did manage one more pic' for today. It is of Wallene's new haircut. I will preface this pic' by saying I am one of those people that lives by the adage "It's just hair. It will grow out." And y'all know me - this child has had her hair every color of the rainbow by this stage of her life [blue was my favorite btw] but to say my heart skipped a beat when I walked into the salon would be a mild description of the loss of oxygen I experienced when I saw just how much she decided to cut off.
Yes, yes...I know. It COULD be shorter. And it IS adorable on her, but Tadpoles she had A LOT of hair when she sat down in the stylist's chair. I guess I wasn't expecting such a drastic change. But? It has grown on me [ha!] and as long as she loves it there is nary a ripple in the pond. And I will look at the bright side: At least now it is her natural color. heehee
One last note - I haven't slept in a few days so if any of my comments on your blogs seem nonsensical or appear to be written in some unknown foreign language at least you'll know why.
See ya' on the flipside [of my pillow, hopefully] Tadpoles.
