SNOW!!!

Finally we got a bit of snow!  Not nearly what was forecast but I  will take what I can get.

I also made bread this morning to give to a friend that does not eat sweets but loves bread.  I made the rosemary no knead bread again and some French bread.  If you have not tried this French bread recipe, here it is again:  http://octoberfarm.blogspot.com/2012/11/terrific-french-bread-and-finished.html

You just take it out of the fridge and pull off some dough, let it proof and then bake it whenever you want some fresh bread.

I flatten a piece and then roll it and stretch it.

I let it proof in bread pans and bake it in them for about the first 15 minutes.  Then I slide them out of the pans and let them finish baking on my oven stone.

Teddy footprints.



Teddy was surprised to see snow this morning.

She was very sleepy and slow moving at 4:30 am.

It took a bit of coaxing to get her to go out.


She just had a bit of breakfast and still had some on her lips.

The rosemary bread fresh from the oven.

My friend was thrilled to get this.  She hides it from her family to save it for herself.

Please Santa send more snow!

Teddy has the cutest teddy bear face. So sweet of you to give your friend homemade bread. I so miss good breads.....I have Celiac. You can't find good GF ones, guess I will have to start baking.
Happy Holidays.

At least You got some snow. But winter is still young so I'm pretty sure You'll get more.

My food processor broke down yesterday so I need to buy a new one, I can of course bake anyway but I'll buy a new one after yule. I really can't complain about the old one breaking down, after all I've had it for over 25 years :-)

Have a great day!
Christer.

Your house must always smell so heavenly, especially early in the morning. Teddy is such a sweetie, even at 4:30 am.
I wish I could send you some of our snow! I am sure you will get a lot more soon!!

"She hides it from her family" -- LOL! I would too. I hope you get more snow because I know you love it so!

Teddy is so adorable in his CHristma antlers. He is more handsome than Rudolph! Maggie

I wish we lived close to you so we could get all these wonderful looking treats you give your neighbors!

Hooray for some snow, anyway!!!!!!!!!!

We are cold and sunny. Perhaps our random snow showers (or "spits") will return later. As long as it's not raining, I'll be happy. As long as we randomly get some snow blowing through the air, I'll be happy.

See? I have to keep up this new-stay-happy-with-the-weather mood! 'Cause it brought me SOME snow showers anyway. -grin-

Oh-that-bread!!!
