Bread of Life

Yes, I know it's white (don't tell) ....... but it's King Arthur's unbleached bread flour with oatmeal. And oh so good! (Recipe on the bag) I used a food processor that is ancient and it started smoking! Guess I need a new one. Yesterday I tried whole wheat but by hand since I thought the processor would probably blow up! It was good but I need to experiment to get it to rise better and be less dense. The baking dish on the right was my grandmothers. I have one a little deeper one as well but missing the lids. I used to mix my breads in a huge Tupperware bowl but I melted that! No need to explain. Now, I use my wooden dough bowl which is more authentic anyway, right?

"She looks well to the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness." Proverbs 31:27

"Man shall not live on bread alone but on every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God."
Deut. 8:3, Matt. 4:4
