I've had a few people ask how the bread turned out. It didn't make a pretty loaf, but that was my fault, not the bread dough. I forgot about it and left it rising too long. When I moved the pan, it deflated like a balloon. I've been baking bread for many years....and I know better than to go off and forget it....but I did it anyway. So, I ended up with a square loaf rather than getting one with a nice rounded top. Here's a picture of the loaf I just took out of the freezer. The first loaf is all eaten already.

When I took it out of the oven, I thought I should do a quality test while the bread was still warm....and maybe I should use a little butter! Afterall, I wouldn't want DH eating an inferior product. The bread tasted really good. I will make it again using the lemon pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. I used some of the bread for my tuna sandwich yesterday and it was wonderful. The bread had just a little bite of spice-i-ness.

Cold here. Rainy...with freezing rain just to the north a few miles. I'm snug in my sweatshirt and pants, warm socks and slippers. I'm thankful to have the gas furnace as a backup to keep us warm. On that front....we will have a man come out on Wed. night to give us estimates on replacement cost. Then we can make the decision.....repair or replace.

This afternoon I am going to finish the last few stitches on another knitted tea cozy and get that sewn together. I also need to clean my messy sewing room. It has become such a mess I can't function....so it is time to stop and clean.

The bread tasted wonderful I am sure, so looks do not matter as much!
