Happiness is Homemade Bread

Happiness is Homemade Bread!

I'm happy to say,
my "chef" has long enjoyed baking bread using
a no-knead bread recipe from his Aunt Nevada.

I featured a loaf of his rye bread in a recent post here.
Made with rye, flax, teff, quinoa, and blackstrap molasses,
it makes a tasty sandwich or simply toasted with butter.
It caught the eye of my friend Kitty @ Kitty's Kozy Kitchen,
and Kitty commented that she wished she could taste it.
Kitty and I have been blogging friends for years, 
so I sent her a variety of the "chef's" 
breads made with various grains and flours.

In return, Kitty sent us a loaf of her 
homemade speciality ~ Sour dough bread made
from the Civil War starter that she was given years ago
and has kept going to use for making her own homemade bread.

Kitty also included a jar of her
homemade fig preserves.

I'm here to tell you this  
is one tasty treat!
Yum, Yum, Yum!

Add in some pretty flowers,
sweet cream butter, and a steaming cup of coffee,
and indeed, you have a delicious morning!

Thank you, Kitty, for sharing
 your love of homemade bread and
the delicious treats from 
Kitty's Kozy Kitchen!

Wishing you a little
homemade bread happiness in your day.

The summer we married, my husband was in graduate school, and I was employed as a teacher. We took a portion of our savings that summer and purchased a sailboat. We christened our Catalina 22, “Hyacinths For The Soul” after Saadi’s poem. Our "Hyacinths" provided years of pleasure.
