There are a few of you who are reading this who have known me for many years. You know that there was a period of time in which I baked a lot of bread. It has been a number of years since I have done much bread baking. New motivation came when I learned of @thefoodnanny and watched one of her demonstrations.
The flour used is Kamut flour. It is lower in gluten, which made it of special interest to me since some of us have markers for celiac disease. I ordered the flour, plus a couple of other items, to give the bread a try.
The special implement is a dough hook, and it really works in an extraordinary fashion! The smaller item is a measuring spoon that has 1/4, 1/2, and 1 teaspoon, plus 1 Tablespoon measurements all in one!
This is after the second addition of flour, just before shaping the loaves…
This is the bread dough shaped and in the pans….
….and here it is just out of the oven!
Check out @thefoodnanny.com if you are interested in the Kamut flour. I am not able to find it on the shelf anywhere I go for my grocery shopping, though I’m sure there are probably other sources.
The weekend is imminent! I hope you have some special plans for your enjoyment! Baseball is still underway, and college football is of interest to many.
Take care, and be safe and well!

It has become a rather gray day here. Good thing I snapped this picture earlier….
Turns out that was apparently all the sun we’ll be seeing today.
Remember that song “Anywhere I Hang My Hat is Home?”
Does this mean that the witch lives here?!?
Seasonal displays in the house give some October spirit….
Uncertain about my reading choices for the month, though I plan to do some reviewing of these….
Good wishes to you on this day! Take care, and be safe and well!

Whew! The days seem to be flying by! We seem to be busy, yet often have nothing to show for all our busyness!
I did get around to baking that apple pie….
Found this creature chomping away on my geranium….should have offered it a bite of pie!
There are several signs of fall in the neighborhood….
