A Little Dough Can Go a Long Way
God bless where flour, salt, yeast, and water revive from. This week and next week John and I have to be careful with our spending so that we do not touch the emergency card. Last week John thought that he lost our main card, called the bank to deactivate the card, but found it later on the floor where he normally hang up his jacket. It has been quite cold and raining in Germany. We went shopping that same day with the card to find out that it was not deactivated but the next day we went to a festival and try to take money out of our account the machine kept our card. We were like dang they really did deactivate it, counted all our coins in our pockets, and enjoyed a bit of the festival making sure we did not go over what we had plus parking. The reason we were surprise that the card was deactivated is because the banker told John if he is only missing it please look first. When he has not found it call back the next day in which we did not because we found the card.
We look through out the house where we would normally have our little stash and count out everything. We have enough to live for two weeks without going into our emergency account. All yesterday John wanted to buy bread. I asked him why buy bread when I have tons of flour, yeast, and salt at home. “I can make you a plain white loaf of bread”. Therefore, this morning I woke up with intention to make his bread than I thought about hey why don’t I make my own too. I don’t eat much bread but I love fiber. Why not make myself a fibrous sunflower wheat bread. And this was the result above:)
If you’re ever in a financial jam or one day need to budget, this recipe might come in handy:
Once you master making white bread you can make so many others. Making bread is not easy but after your first mistake you learn what not to do. I laugh when I first tried to make a free form bread following Nancy directions and it went through the rack. I misread and it was suppose to go on the baking tray not the rack, lol, if it was not for her I would still be using a baking machine. So this slice of bread goes to Nancy. I will forever think of her when I am making breads and my neighbor who was so kind to give it a try to tell me “it was good, next time add a little bit more salt”.
