I'm baking bread with regularity again. I don't know why I stopped in the first place, but I did. I just bought a copy of Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day (from the same authors of Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day) and it's pretty much rocking my world in a good way. The photo shows my first batch of the master recipe dough. It has a much higher wheat to white flour ratio than any of the recipes in the first book. I haven't eaten it yet, but the oven is heating as I type. I'll report back once I have sampled it. My bet is that it is going to be good. I also have some Avocado-Guacamole bread rising. I'm pretty psyched to try that.
Speaking of healthy, I'm at a standstill for after-school snacks. Specifically, after-school snacks that are portable and easily eaten in the car. There are two days a week that I pick the girls up from school and we drive straight to an activity. I admit that we do stop at the coffee shop frequently. I want to change that for health and pocketbook reasons. I can dream up all kinds of food combinations that I think are fantastic, but don't enthuse my kids. If you care to share your ideas, I might just make up a master list for downloading. Is that incentive enough?
