It was such a joy. It may have taken forever, but it was well worth it. We are now spending the week noshing on yummy, whole wheat bread. I think this will quickly become a weekly tradition.
There's something really special about spending more than 30 minutes on a recipe and preparing something that will serve your family well. I spend a lot of my time in the kitchen praying over our home, my husband, and the people who will eat what I'm making. I cherish that time. It's full of worship.
There's also something really special about your house being filled with warm bread smells. There is really nothing better.
I used Summer Harms' Honey Whole Wheat Recipe. It turned out perfect, and she really just has the cutest blog ever. You'll love it. I know you will.
My favorite way to enjoy a slice of toasted homemade bread is with a good ol' fashioned 'mater sandwich. If you've never had a tomato sandwich with Duke Mayonnaise, I feel sorry for you. I can't wait for tomato season to get here.
I am so my mother's daughter.
Happy Friday! Go do something fun this weekend, OK?
