Lily’s bread and Lily’s luck




Lily’s bread and Lily’s luck

Originally uploaded by kjda

Last night Lily made the rolls for today’s dinner. I helped; in fact, I made her follow a recipe and was so anal about the whole thing that when it didn’t raise as much as I expected we made another batch.

In between Lily asked to play with the flour and water and such, and made something she said was bread dough. We had yeast left over from the rolls, so I showed her how to dissolve it. Other than that, I paid no attention until she presented me with a little loaf ready to raise. It looked pretty good, so we let it rise. Even punched it down for a second raise. And this morning we baked it.

It’s actually GOOD. She is now basking in the approval of siblings and parents. I think she has a new hobby.
