One of the things Barbara Kingsolver discusses in the the book I'm reading, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle, is how people's view of food is antiseptic and completely disconnected to the dirt in which it was grown. So while Riley played at his friend's house, Jacob, Dylan, and I connected to the dirt. We pulled weeds and planted seeds - carrots, onions, fennel, peas, beans, and two different kinds of basil.
#BreadBakers is a group of bread loving bakers who get together once a month to bake bread with a common ingredient or theme. You can see all our of lovely bread by following our Pinterest board right here. Links are also updated after each event on the Bread Bakers home page . We take turns hosting each month and choosing the theme/ingredient. This month Stacy of Food Lust People Love is hosting and she wrote: "Your bread can be large, as in one big animal, or small - animal-shaped rolls. Use your imagination! Points for flavor and shape!" If you are a food blogger and would like to join us, just send an email with your blog URL to Stacy at email@example.com. Here's the animal-shaped bread basket from the #BreadBakers...
