My Sabbatical for the Month of March was anything but dull. Here are a few things that we enjoyed. A wonderful Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich in Hollywood with friends after Church. An hour wait...but it was worth it.
Saint Patrick's Day was celebrate with Corn Beef, Cabbage and red potatoes with a wonderful garlic mustard from Trader Joe's. The store was completely out of Rye Bread so I decided to try my luck at making some.
I bought a bag of Bob's Red Hill Rye flour and a jar of Caraway seeds and was on my way to homemade rye bread. Used the dryer again for a warm place to let it rise.
Decided to make two small loaves instead of one large one. It turned out really nice, and tasted so good with dinner.
While we were out and about checking out our local Thrift Store, we met this gentleman and it just proves us old folks like to have fun.
Today I made my dearest a fried egg sandwich on our homemade rye bread. I would have had one too, but I was in the Dentist chair at noon. This is the second installment of getting a new "mouth". Today the last old root canal was removed and impressions made for a partial to fill in my missing teach. Soon, I will be sharing a picture with a BIG smile and NO missing teeth. I've really needed to do this for years, but life got in the way.
Since I was on a homemade bread kick, I tried homemade crackers and they turned out so yummy. The round ones are rye, and the square ones are flax seed. So easy. I've been looking up cracker recipes. Not many cookbooks have them.
Last, but not least, I am well on the way of finishing the quilt for the new grand baby coming in June. Talked to Jill today, and we are all getting so excited. She's going to call us on Skype tonight so we can see out big the baby bump is ...She said it a lot more than a "bump" now at seven months.
I may have to take a month off every year.....It was so very nice to take a break from the Computer, but I really was ready to get back. I missed all of my friends the most, and thank a few of you who emailed me from time to time.
