Glad to see you are posting with us Shop! Hope you will become a regular. Smile

Hey, Ford, glad to know you can bake bread! LOL! Is that some kind of therapy? Wink...I did win one good auction. I have a few more hanging in there. Que je ne gagne-t-il pas, je peux compter probablement comme une bénédiction!

Hi Mrs. M.,
We'd probably all gain weight if we had to work in a bakery. Big Grin
Hello Samuraiblossom, glad to hear you won the auction! Rumor is that eBay was slow today, but it sounds like the snipes are going through OK. There haven't been any posts with frownie faces (or worse). Or if there have been some, I haven't noticed them. Smile
Hi Rick,
Yes, believe it or not, I just made potato bread! No sunflower seeds, though. I've used a lot of different flours. Sometimes I grind the wheat into flour myself, but that makes for a heavier bread. Potato flour isn't hard to make. You just dehydrate the potatoes and then grind them up in a flour grinder.
But then, I'm a strange person Eek and like to do lots of things the hard way. Like making my own yarn by spinning on a spinning wheel...baking bread....
Guess I'd better stop now, before someone sends the men with the white coats and straightjackets.... Eek Eek Eek

Sounds like you're a fiber person. I assume you knit, and perhaps do some weaving or crocheting? I've been told that spinners often are also bread-makers. Something about getting into the basics.

Working on your Masters and baking bread wouldn't appear to use the same side of the brain, so it probably gives each side some time off.
Sorry Rick, I didn't mean to ignore you. Hopefully the degree will be complete in 2 1/2 years. But a lot depends on classes and scheduling.
And yes--I like to work in fiber. I've spun wool, dog hair, and silk, and tried a few other things just for fun. Big Grin (Coconut hair fiber--or whatever that stuff on the outside of a coconut is called--doesn't spin very well. Eek) I have a loom and have been knitting since early grade school. But most of whatever gets spun usually ends up with someone who just has to have it. Oh, well. Big Grin Most of the fun is in the spinning, anyway.
Gotta go do some homework now. Have a great day, OK? Smile
