Making Bread

On Tuesday my neighbor gave me starter to make Amish Friendship Bread. She also left me a couple of slices as a sample. Let me tell you, it's cake. Not bread. Making the bread from the starter is a ten day process. Today is Day Five when I add to the starter.

In five more days I'll be able to make two loaves bread. I will still have enough starter to pass along to three people and keep some for myself to start the process all over again. My goal is to see how long I can go for. I have no idea what I'm going to do with two loaves of this cake every ten days (or the left over starter). That's a lot of bread.

You are a better woman that i, MacD! I received some of that starter for Cmas, and i just couldn't do it. After seeing how much bread i got the first time, i couldn't eat that much bread every ten days!! Good luck on your quest! (It is quite tasty with chocolate Jello and hazelnuts!!) :o)

Well... We'll see how long I last. I didn't realize how much stuff goes into the bread.

That's exactly why i quit at my first two loaves. If we ate that much bread (and that much Jello), then i figured what was the point in going to Weight Watchers. I'd just sign up for the next episode of "The 700,000 pound Woman". ;)

Looks tasty! Keep the L.G. pictures comin'--Nona and i are LOVIN' 'em!!
