Thursdays: From Scratch (Week 3)

This week I have found my true passion in making things from scratch, baking.  This was my week in pictures.

The bread that you see pictured above was from grandmother bread.  The first loaf was a regular loaf of bread for sandwiches.  The second loaf of bread was for french toast.  The third loaf of bread was rolled out and had american cheese slices inside it.  Making bagels and cinnamon rolls was also a lot of fun.  

Grandmothers bread needed to be baked longer.  I pulled them all out of the oven thinking they were done and sliced it all.  This was a mistake because the bread was doughy in the center.  We ate it anyway  and ended up with tummy aches.  So, the next day when I served the bread again, I sliced it down the middle and tried baking it longer and found out that it only got harder.  Learning from experience is how I learn best.

Sewing- I was also able to work on one of my son's apron.  It is almost finished.  Maybe next week I will be able to post a picture of the completed apron.

Cleaning supplies- windex.  Using one cup of vinegar, 1 teaspoon of dish washing detergent, and 3 cups of water I was able to make an entire spray bottle of window cleaning solution.

Don't forget to head on over to Sarah's blog and check out her progress and all the others who have joined her.

I have lots of flops in the kitchen, and I am grateful for them because I think it has helped me grow in what I know about baking! Everything LOOKED delicious, all lined up in your oven. I LOVE those days...

Thanks for linking up! :)
