Mmmmm freshly baked bread

tea enjoy every moment

MWNN made this 70% spelt, 30% white loaf (with a little help from the Panasonic you can see in the background) earlier this week.

Time for a buttered slice for breakfast.

It's also time to stock up on flour, methinks, given yesterday's news about rising wheat prices. Spelt isn't wheat and is already a lot more expensive than white or wholemeal flour, but we tend not to make 100% spelt bread, prefering the more open texture a mix of grains provides.

irishnoodles, keep your eyes open for the postman later this week bearing a parcel MWNN posted on Tuesday to aid your swift recovery.

Not fair, you're making me hungry.

BTW, why the unlocked posts all of a sudden?

You're very welcome to a slice and a cuppa.

Forgot to Flock this one. Thanks for the headsup. Mind you, there's really no need with the majority of posts, it's just that some of the family are a bit paranoid about personal info and the interweb.

That's a very nice looking loaf! Pass the butter.

It's very scrummy and almost all gone now. The Panasonic paid for itself years ago.

Pass the butter.
Salted or unsalted?

Always unsalted.

Can I come round for lunch ;)

Speaking of which I really must pop round one day.

I'd rather come to you, if that's OK, as I'm keen to suss out the knitting supplies in MK. We're off to Bonny Scotland tomorrow and will be back some time in the week of 11th March.

Sounds good. There is a specialist knitting shop just down the road

I have a couple of Pratchett books which were destined for you for birthday and Christmas and never made it. Do you have 'Wintersmith' and 'Making Money' yet?

You can open a handicraft shop - you are turning-out beautiful shawls in record time. I saw a lady wearing a shawl in church on Sunday, I am really looking forward to mine, will keep a keen eye on the postman this week.

The bread looks delicious, no wonder MWNN is the size he is,

Wishing you spring weather and no snow for you holiday in Scotland.

We are feeling much better thank you, it will take another couple of days to be back to normal again.

Huggles you. I hope you like the shawl and that it doesn't take much longer to reach you.

What yummy looking bread - could just do with a slice of it with butter and strawberry jam and a good cup of tea.

I need to find some recipes for my bread machine, and haul it back out again :D

It always gets to me how we both do similar things - even though we are from completely different parts of the globe. Instead of a shawl I've been trying to do a neck warmer (basically a big and thick collar, because with my eyesight I have to stay simple) and I do bake bread also. Most weekends and every once in a while during the week.

I'm going to be in the UK this summer - but I'm guessing you'll be off. :(
