Once again, thanks Shiloh Farms, appreciated ya.

In other news, we made bread tonight. Sandwich bread that is. Got the recipe here. We eat a lot of bread, we make sandwiches all the time. At nearly $2.50 for a loaf of bread we thought it was well worth a try. Pretty easy so far, it's still in the oven. I'll try to post ya some pics tomorrow, it's getting late. Boy it sure smells go though. One thing to remember is, warm that milk so the yeast gets kinda frothy when mixed together and I should have melted the butter too. Just wanted to mention that in case you want to give this bread a try.

Congratulations on a milestone post and a cool award!
Thanks for the bread recipe link--I don't use a bread maker, but I'll have to see if I can work out how to do it by hand...can never have too many good bread recipes!

Congratulations on 200 great posts, and getting your award. :)

Thank you for nominating me - your kindness is always appreciated!

Wretha said...

Thanks Chris for the nomination, I just finished nominating 10 other blogs, wow, does that ever take up some time! The only problem I had with it was not being able to pick your blog! And picking just 10 blogs... :)

I wonder who started this award? I tried to go back through the list of those who nominated the one before, but I got to one that didn't have a message about it, this person just put an image of the award on their sidebar but didn't post a message about it, so I was stopped there...

Congrats on your award! You definitely fit the description!! And, thanks for the nomination... as a fairly new blogger, that's really awesome. I will be working on my nominations today. :)

Oh, and thanks for the bread recipe. I'm collecting them as we eat at least a loaf a day and the easier to make, the better!
