Crusty Bread! A new calling?

OMG!! is bread making finely going to me a new calling for me? i saw this over on Cathy's blog  so easy and fun! im learning of course to try instant yeast instead of regular, and unbleached flour instead of bleached... and maybe a tish less water.. each oven ect is different. anyway for my first loaf i am sooo excited. its a Cheddar chz with parsley and a tish of garlic. i plan on sending it to Duluth with Matt/Katie and babe (going to visit jay/jess) for Jessie's BIRTHDAY on Sunday... if i can resist cutting into it sense its my first loaf, i really should try taste test it...

sending Bran muffins too, i added nuts, mini choc chips and
a squirt of honey in a slit on the top when done!

thanx so much for stopping by and i want to say to some of my new blog followers
thanx so much, i have tried to send you a message so if you dont get it plz know that
im glad you stop by!!
enjoy your day!!         jody
