Bread


Expecting a watercolor? Sorry—I was thinking about other things. Not to bore you...but many years ago when I served in the Navy, bread was made at sea around 12:00 midnight. If your watch ended and you were up and watching a movie, bread was placed out in the ships mess to cool. There is nothing like fresh bread. Years later when I moved back home, I found in the attic an old bread maker. Nothing but a galvanized pail with a crank and dough hook. I followed the bread directions on the bag of King Arthur Flour and it came out great. I made this bread for many years . After a while, as life goes, I fell away from it, I started making bread again and had a lot of trouble. I think I found the problem. Today the recipe calls for water instead of evaporated milk. I switched back to evaporated milk and the bread is fantastic again.
Bread is easy to make. All the time comes from waiting for the dough to rise. If you are around anyway,it's no time at all. It only takes about 15 minutes to mix.
If you would like this recipe...let me know. BREAD IS GOOD! So Good. E-Mail me and I will send a text file. Click Here.

Well, Bill...I would love to have the recipe (LeavesOfCrimson@att.net). It looks good, probably smells even better, and then to have the taste outshine even that? I am now imagining fresh baking bread smells!

Oh Boy, YES, everyone loves bread! I have one of those new-fangled bread makers which I practically wore out before I went on the South Beach Diet. So now I can only smell it...........

Thank you for the recipe, Bill. I can't wait to give this a go! I am especially intrigued by the addition of yummy honey (one of my favorite flavors)!
