Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

I have a close friend who has a grain mill and grinds her own wheat for baking. My husband, who has a strong survivalist personality, instantly fell in love with the concept and with Melissa's yummy breads. And so for the past couple years he has been bugging me to get a grain mill and bake bread. Ok, so I finally gave in and decided to take homemaker to the most extreme level. I have never baked a cake (until today), made a roast or homemade soup (until a couple weeks ago), and I have only baked buns a couple times and made cookies just a few times. So the whole concept of bread baking was bizarre at best.

But now that I have decided to do it, I am putting in 110% to do it well. I have to - the equipment was several hundred dollars and I cannot just let it sit and collect dust! I was only going to buy the grain mill until my cheapo mixe blew up last week - so now I have a shiny new Cuisinart mixer and a Wondermill grain mill. Add in a couple 50lb bags of wheat and I am ready to bake!

I am doing this blog, as a way to document and journal my baking experiences. I want to be able to learn as I go and because I am a logical and analytical learner I must be organized and hav it all written out. That whole accountant thing has followed me into homemaking! And so, if you happen to stumble upon this humble little blog please say hi and any advice or suggestions offered are appreciated.
