    Taking a small break

    I thought I would take a break from quilting today. Instead, I am baking bread and reading a book. An old book by James A. Mitchner called "Caravans". I just started it and I know it is hard to get into his books at first.
    I got a new Pullman Loaf Pan yesterday at "Home Goods" so I thought I would use today to try it out. Dough is going through it's first rising and it smells wonderful.

    I love homemade bread. I use the dough for it at Christmas time to make cinnamon rolls. Both are good right out of the oven. I made beer bread last Sunday, fast easy and no rising. Enjoy your bread and break.

    Besides quilting thats my favorite thing to do, nothing better than a good book and homemade bread. I have read all of Mitchners books, he was a great writer.
    Another great writter of historical fiction is Edward Rutherford. His books are London,The Forest,Russka,Sarum,New York.

    A pullman loaf pan is longer, straight sides, and has a slide-on lid which makes a square loaf--for making lovely sandwiches.

    I love fresh baked bread and books by James Mischner. Yes his books are hard to get into but once you do, you can't put them down. The first chapter is a hard read but he always refers back to it later in the book. I had read "Centenial" and I am reading "Chesapeak" now. It's a great story.
