miss marple's bread woes...



:: poor ms. marple.

:: she has tried, and tried, and tried some more...

:: but she has yet to find that one recipe that will solve all her woes. After spending a bank breaking amount of money on a new bread machine, her plan on going home and whipping up some instant gluten/dairy/soy free successes was interrupted by a day of utter frustration and despair.

:: her first bread was much too lumpy...



:: the next one was far too spongy...



:: and the third one. Well, that was just plain yucky. She even felt too bad for the birds to give them this one...




:: oh dear! what ever will she do? The school bus is nearing the corner and some surely disappointed boys will be heading in the door.

::don't despair ms. marple. You will get there....just give it some time. Every loaf is one step closer to that perfect loaf that can only be described as "too good".

:: in the meantime, there are always the squirrels. I don't think they are too picky when it comes to bread.

Hey quilters I need some solidarity. My favorite niece is a quilter extraordinaire and she also contributes heavily to breast cancer – one of her companies, “Save the Tatas”, gives over 100,000 per year to this important research. Please vote for her as she can even donate more money to this cause at http://pinkwell.org/ if you do, by winning the Ellen DeGeners Award. It is Breast Cancer awareness month and it’s something all of you should be paying attention to! Thanks for your help!
