Day 27 - Baking Bread


Okay, so Christian is actually peeling a potato in this photo, but it was step one in our Potato-Buttermilk bread recipe that we have been making this morning. There are two loaves in the oven as I type this. I am working including the kids in the cooking more and letting them build some motor skills while they are at it. I washed the potatos and showed Christian how to peel and he peeled two of them. Liam tried a bit too, but he is not quite ready. I can't wait for the bread to get out of the oven. The loaves were huge before I even put them in the oven and they do one more rise while cooking. I also defrosted and warmed up some tomato/orange soup in the crock pot.
Here is the finished product...
