Wow I can live with this break in our Spring cycle. All the miserable hard rain is gone. And its Saturday. Yesterday I baked. I wear a baker's hat as well as a chicken herding hat. I know all the names- Snickerdoodles, lime butter, all those butter and sugar confections. And I have hit the wagon and said no! to sugar and butter. The one-two punch. Wham. You're fat and ill. So when I put on my baker's hat yesterday what to bake? The usual batch of bread that I make each week. And then I played a bit though my back protested. I needed something to go with our lentil stew besides a chunk of lettuce. (Carbs are not my enemy. My weight continues to flow downwards.) So I got out a bottle of olive oil, a hen's egg, flax milk and the flours and worked my way into bread rolls. Tender bread sticks that had a shake of onion powder in. Its a kick for me; a way to get into the sandbox and play. Great for a rainy day, after I'd returned from feeding the hens.
