Last Thursday, Mary Scott and I had a field trip to the Hanrions to make bread. The girls played while Elisabeth and I (well, mostly Elisabeth) made bread. We used fresh wheat flour that Elisabeth ground shortly before Mary Scott and I arrived. I enjoyed learning more about the process of making fresh yeast bread. It almost seems like an art. And I enjoyed the chance to spend time with Elisabeth. Once finished, we had baked bread and made rolls to keep in the freezer. The bread is so yummy. I can slice it and eat it - plain and not toasted - DELICIOUS! I think I could live off of home-made bread and sweet tea with lemon. Well maybe not... Matthew 4:4 tells me, "Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." So I think I've got it... I can sit down with a loaf of home-made bread, a big glass of sweet iced tea with extra lemon and enjoy them while reading my Bible - then my body and my spirit are being nourished. Now that's the ticket!
