Bread. It's the Answer!

Ok, so yesterday wasn't the best of days. Hell, the past couple weeks ain't been all that super, as it were.

Add to that, I'm sorta kinda isolated. Oh, I'm talking to people. All day. My poor ear is raw from the earbud on my hands free thingy for the cell phone. What I mean is CONTACT. Eye contact. Visual.

Yeah, anyway - kinda interesting around here. And I'm rather frustrated, to say the least.

The thing with the delivery just pushed me over the edge yesterday. I turned off the cell phone and decided I had to do something for ME.

So I baked a fruit cocktail cake. Holy cow. It's REALLY good. I hadn't made one in over a year, and had almost forgotten how yummy they are.

But I was still dealing with all this pent up energy. Oh, I got some ideas on how to get rid of it, but well......not really options at this point.

So - what to do, what to do.

I know!!

Bread. I'll make some bread.

And I did. Since I was making one of the recipes from Army Wife's birthday (The pork that Homefront Six told us about) I figured some good rye bread would be perfect.

It's the best my bread has turned out in ages. And now I understand why.

I kneaded the hell out of the poor pile of dough. It was kinda funny. There I stood at the kitchen counter, mutterin' and cussin' away, all the while I was just pounding the shit out of that stuff.

It rose to perfection. Baked? Exactly right.

It was precisely what I needed to do.

So - given the way things have been going lately, anyone need a loaf of bread? Put your orders in now. Who knows when everything will smooth out and I'll be back to Happy Tammi!!!
