What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Fresh Baked

Still have no working stove, though my hope is by the end of the week. This will be my eighth week without a stove/oven.

I've hated every moment of it.

Just so you know.

Iin case you didn't.


When I opened the box labeled "Bread Machine" I started drooling and went to make bread that very moment, only to discover I had no yeast. So I made an emergency trip to the grocery that night, because you KNOW it was a justifiable emergency I was facing.

That night I dreamed of fresh warm bread. I coveted and yearned for it. I pined away. I didn't care if we had anything else for dinner. All I wanted was warm, fresh bread with gooey melted butter atop.

So yesterday we excitedly added ingredients to our magic box that bakes bread and could hardly contain ourselves when it began whirring.

Last night was SUCH a feast. Belgian Molasses Bread and every bite was divine. I *did* by the way, make some Hearty Split Pea and Sausage soup to go with it, but the bread was my PERSONAL hightlight.

I ate it for breakfast this morning too.

And I have another loaf in the works for today....

The bread sounds delicious! You should post the recipe. ;) Are you making the same kind today or something different?

We haven't had a working oven for months. :( Thankfully, the stove top works! I'm hoping to get the oven fixed (or replaced with another used one) in the very near future!

You must share that recipe. I have some soup in the freezer, and some of that bread would be divine with it. Please, pretty please, for the recipe. :-)

Rebecca said...

I WILL share the recipe- you know why? Because my recipe blog is parched and decaying. And it needs a new recipe. PRONTO.

I will also share the bread recipe I made today- Cappuchino Chip Bread.

And maybe even the one I make tomorrow...

Cinnamon Rasin is my personal favorite to make in my bread machine. I put all the ingredients in it before I go to bed, set the timer and dream away. When my alarm goes off (HORRIBLE SOUND!) I am awakened pleasently by the delicious smell of bread baking!! YUMMY! I time it so I have time to make a pot of coffee, shower, and get dressed. About the time I'm putting on my clothes, I hear the timer beeping! Breakfast is served! Hmmm...maybe I'll go start a loaf now!
