I should have loaves of fresh bread to show you by now, but truth to tell, I just got them into the loaf pans to rise. Do ya ever wonder how times flies by so fast? It seems that by the time I got home from picking up my co-op order (many thanks to my dear husband for lending muscle power to this gargantuan task) and putting it away, I had to fix us some lunch.
Snow did start around one o'clock. Big, beautiful flakes coming down like it really meant it. I don't know if you can actually see the flakes in the above picture or not. Why is it that a photo (at least with my simple camera --- and simple operator) doesn't ever show how heavy the flakes are?
This was taken out my quilt studio window through screen and all. (Where I spent about 30 minutes today right after lunch.)
The large flakes have stopped now but it continues to snow lightly and steadily. We have about an inch accumulation so far. If we can get a couple/few inches, I think it would help the terrible ice conditions. IF it turns out to be a snow that has a little "grip" to it that is.
I've got pork chops cooking for dinner tonight and a little bill paying I should do at the desk while I'm here. (If I can just locate the bills --- oi vey, the mess my desk top is.) The bread I decided to make is Oatmeal Bread and I'll post some pictures later if the baked loaves are presentable. Sue over at "Sue's Journal - The Other Stuff" called me inhuman (da noive of da woman!) because I can make homemade bread and then not eat a slice or two, so even though it's going to be a HUGE (H.U.G.E.) sacrifice, I'm going to eat a piece of warm Oatmeal Bread when it comes out of the oven. I mean, I HAVE to, right??
