Bread Making Sunday

Today Cristina, Fred and their children are gone for most of the day. Leaving Joel, Fiona and I a day to ourselves here at the house. In addition to doing two loads of laundry, the ironing and putting a roast pork and vegetables in the oven to slow bake all day, I helped Fiona with several art projects.

We also made bread today. I made whole wheat baking powder drop biscuits this morning. Joel’s about ready to put the home made braid of bread in the oven. Yummm!!!
