Slap Me Silly

But don't call me late for dinner.

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.

See?

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.

I like Wallene's hair. With as hot as it's been, it makes me yearn to see my stylist.

The bread looks pretty stunning, too!

Hi there! What's this - a completely new blog look, or have I gone into someone else's blog by mistake?! I need to know! Is your blog now called "Slap Me Silly?!" That bread certainly sounds tasty, and I love Wallene's new hair style. She looks so much like you now. Eeeek!!

No, I can now see that the post title was called Slap Me Silly, but your blog is still looking completely different. Who sorted out all that for you?! x

ooo - you've changed things here! I like it!

And I like the haircut too - much lighter for summer heat. I've always wanted blue hair.

And I may try baking the bread - (cocoa powder?) even though I haven't done well with bread - Gary has though - I've done ok with cinnamon rolls.

I haven't been sleeping either - I think it's the painkillers.

I wish I lived closer to you. I would conveniently show up for dinner.

I've got to say it again, your new blog layout looks terrific. I've just enjoyed looking at all the different pages. Wish I could do something like this with mine.

Love the new blog look!

Hair does grow back. I had a woman chop so much of my hair off (it was short to begin with) that I had to grab her hands and tell her to "STOP! NOW!" I went home and tried to convince myself it wasn't that bad, but everytime I looked in the mirror, I started crying. It was awful.

I love your new look! I must admit, I will trust your word for it on the bread... I am not a rye bread fan. I bet Wallene feels so much cooler with the short hair cut, too.

CWMartin said...

Wow, thought I was in the wrong place. Good things- her hair looks adorable! Bad things- rye = carraway seeds= GAG!

I love the new blog look...the bread looks yum....although i am not a fan of rye bread my grandfather LOVES it....I will have to pass it on..
I am sure that Wallene's hair cut was a huge surprise but she can definitely pull it off....so cute!! Hugs and love to you1

Wow, your blog sure has gone high class! It looks super. (You smartie.) It's been a lot of years since I last made rye bread. It tasted wonderful, but I didn't like working with that sticky sticky dough. Wallene's hair looks adorable. She's one smart cookie. With as hot as it's been, what better way to cool off than with a perky haircut? Maybe I oughta get mine whacked off, too.
