Movie Night and Homemade Bread

Tonight was movie night at my house. I ran into Blockbuster today with Jordan Ann to pick out ONE movie. Came out with two, one for each child. She was convinced we needed to get The Wiggles and surprise Jack with it. (I have no idea where she gets the desire to get surprises for people!) And of course, the second she saw Disney Princess Follow Your Dreams, she just has to choose that one for herself.

So after supper, we got into our pajamas, spread out sleeping bags, put on the movie and ate marshmallows. (I took several pictures to document the fun event, but don't have Wes's computer to upload them, I'm on Windows 98, remember? I'll get them soon, though.)

After I put them to bed, promptly at 7:15 and 7:25, I sat down with a new knitting project and to watch Julie & Julia. It was one I wanted to see in the theater, but never got around to it. It wasn't what I was expecting, but still pretty good. I loved the scenery, especially in France.

As I sat and knitted, I started thinking about what my next undertaking would be. I'm thinking about bread. I want to learn to make homemade bread. The healthy, whole grain type that I can give my children for breakfast and lunch. Personally, I can do with or without bread, but others in my house need it for everyday survival. And as much as we power through loaves of bread around here, it might be helpful financially, too. So we'll see. Something I will continue thinking about.

Do you bake bread? If so, do you think I would be able to do it? I'm a little intimidated by it. Especially the packets of yeast and letting it rise part. Do you have a recipe you would share? Let me know.

Wishing you a nice weekend...
