I am amazingly lactose intolerant. We’ve had a really hard time finding bread I can eat! They always seem to sneak in nonfat dry milk or whey other terribleness. I started making my own recently and I love it! No more bloating, no more cramps – only delicious and awesome homemade bread!
This weekend has been nice and productive. 😀
I made a huge batch of homemade red chile sauce with pasilla chiles. (It’s so different than red sauce made from guajillo chiles – I can’t wait to make enchiladas with it!)
Tyler and I went to the nursery and bought some seeds, strawberry plants and planters. 😀 We found a box with “free lemons” written on it and it contained some of the most massive lemons I’ve ever seen, so of course I had to take three of those.
I made another loaf of whole wheat bread and I think I’ve finally perfected it. Now I can have good sandwich bread without milk – and without dropping $5 a loaf.
Roscoe is included because he is so very excited about hanging out on the back porch while we garden.
And now I’ve got to get back to embroidering – I have so many pieces left to make for Patchwork Oakland!
Chocolate cream pie is my favorite sort of pie. This particular recipe has been a family favorite forever – I always loved the holidays and my birthday growing up because I knew Gram would make a chocolate cream pie. My mom now carries on the tradition for Thanksgiving and Christmas, and it’s a favorite among my friends too. It’s fairly quick to make and I’ve never, ever had one go badly. You can even make a pudding out of it by increasing the milk by 1/4 cup.
