Spring has Sprung!

Spring has Sprung!

I know it may not feel quite like Spring yet, however I have flowers blooming all throughout my yard. I’ve been noticing more and more over the past couple of weeks. A welcome sight indeed!

My pig bacon and I took advantage of the warm weather today by sunbathing in the front yard.

Well, I finally gave it a shot and took a stab at baking a loaf of bread. I've gotta say that it's pretty involved. Overall I think it came out pretty darn good.

 This mixer has been sitting on my countertop for quite a while just calling my name. I have the dough-hook attachment and it makes the process a lot less physically draining. You pretty much dump in the ingredients and it does most of the hard work for you.

I tried a fire roasted onion loaf recipe that I got from a Paul Prudhomme book that I own. Wow! I think I gained a few pounds.

It came out a little flat, I think. I put it in my oven thinking that the pilot light would keep it warm enough during the rising. I'm wondering if it was too cool in there. Maybe I don't have a pilot light in there? Dunno.

WTH?!?! (that's...what the heck:)
