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?
