I Did Say Domestic Didn't I?
Today was "Let's be Domestic" day. I don't actually know why I get like this, I usually avoid the kitchen like the plague. First, I made cresent rolls, not Pillsbury, but HOMEMADE. They were okay, a little overdone, but not bad. Second, I made carmel rolls. Now, this one I'm proud of! Mom, they didn't burn! They were just right. Perfect. Delicious! Third, I made a loaf of bread. Not bread machine bread. Real bread. Mix it, knead it, poke it, roll it, and throw it in the oven. Maybe I did all this because it's raining and gray and miserable outside. Maybe I'm trying to surprise my hubby. Maybe, if I do all these things, I'll feel better about being at home and making real contributions! Did you know that kneading bread is theraputic? Yup, you can beat it up, pound on it, and rough handle it, and it only comes out tasting better! And you feel better too! So, the next time you're frustrated, make bread.
