SMELLS SO GOOD

 
I love cooking for company, and Dani and I have been having such a great time.  Today I took her to the Thrift Store and with my 30% Senior discount, came away with some good finds.
 
Dinner was in the crock pot, but I wanted some nice bread to go with it, and had a box of Simply Homemade bread mix that takes less than an hour to make.
 
 
I had just finished drying a load of clothes, and it said to let it rise for 25 minutes in a warm place.  I covered it an put it in the warm dryer.  25 minutes later it had almost doubled, and into the oven for another 25 minutes, and yummy yeast bread.  This was country white, but I sprinkles a few poppy and sesame seeds on top.  With a nice pad of butter...Hard to stop with one piece.

  3. Wish I had a slice with lots of soft butter! The platter that you have the bread on was my grandma's china pattern. I have her Homer Laughlin Virginia Rose pie plate~ I wonder how many pies she baked and shared with neighbors in that pie plate.

    1. Mildred I found that platter at the Thrift Store, and I also found a dinner plate of the same pattern. I just love it. It reminds me of my mom.

      Oh I'm with you, my piece had lots of soft butter...mmmm.

  7. Women all over the world are going to start letting their bread rise in the dryer. It will be The Wanda Method. :)

    Warm bread with butter is one of the finest foods ever! Yum!

  9. Oh yeh ! Nothing better than bread baked at home. And makes it even easier when it's in a box for you. We don't have those here. Phooey! Best wishes, Tammy

    1. Oh I love simple things, and this was so easy. Wonder if I could make cinnamon rolls out of it next time?

  10. Looks very delicious. I bet your kitchen smelled good while it was baking. That's one thing I do miss, the smells coming from the kitchen when old tom is in the oven roasting or bread is baking. Everything in side or out side pretty much smells the same. I also miss the smell of rain coming and a baby after their bath and they've been powered. So many things you find you miss since you can't smell them. You forget and think everyone else smells things like you do which means, there is nothing to smell.

    1. Oh Patty, I has forgotten you lost your sense of smell. That would be so hard. I would surely let things burn if I didn't smell them and remember I have something on the stove...

      Love the smell of a baby after it's bath.
