The Littlest Bread Maker

Madelyn worked at making Miracle Bread yesterday. She did a great job putting everything together!

Unfortunately, yesterday during rest time, we all fell asleep and when we woke...the dough had risen *too* much and ended up flattening. We baked it anyway and everyone still tried a piece. The chickens got to enjoy it, too! ;)

So, today...after our mishap yesterday, we were more careful and the miracle bread turned out wonderfully!

We should have let it cook another minute or two...but I was worried about burning the bottom of the bread. It tastes just wonderful!! :) This will definitely be a well-used recipe in our home!

I was so thrilled to be able to say that the snow melted, outside, and the the temperature was in the 60's (yesterday)! I opened the windows and enjoyed the breeze! In the afternoon, though, it started to rain and storm and the boys got nervous with the windows open...thunder is much louder when you leave the windows open! ;) Still, it was a taste of the weather to come...and I loved it!

A few photos to share...
