Tuesday in the Swamp

Well, I held my nose and did my civic duty today, I didn't write in Godzilla as I'd threatened to, but probably should have.
Autumn is just beautiful here, cool nights, warm days, time to be in the garden, but I haven't been.  Still working full time on my cross stitch.
Did something weird yesterday.  I make bread all the time.  Know the recipe by heart, mix it up and throw it in the bread maker.  So yesterday I made a loaf of our regular honey wheat, turned the machine on and left it.  Two and a half hours later it was done.  Just one problem, the bread was flat, did not rise at all.  It weighed a ton.  Tried to figure out what went wrong and set  up the ingredients  to make another loaf.  Got out the yeast and low and behold what was already sitting on the counter----the yeast I should have put in the last loaf.  Groan!!! I'm definitely getting absent minded, distract me for a minute and I forget whatever I'm doing.  Oh Lord, maybe I did write Godzilla in on my ballot and I just don't remember. Hope he gets a few other votes.

Is this not pitiful?

  2. My husband had a loaf turn out like that a few years ago. He swears he put the yeast in, but this confirms to me what really happened to that bread! I voted my concern for the future babies in this world.

  7. Somedays are just a mess.
    Godzilla seems a good vote for me. In the little town in Maine that has 10 votes, someone voted for Mitt ! Remember how all the liberal hated him well if he could only have been running again. No Turmp or Billary !

    cheers, parsnip

  9. Godzilla sounds good to me. We've got past autumn here, we're in full on winter mode here today, our first snowfall of the season. I hope that doesn't mean we're going to have a bad winter.

  10. This sort of thing does cause us to do a check on our wits! I suppose we must get used to being absent minded--one more annoyance on the 'growing older' list that we weren't warned to expect.

  13. I don't bake bread, but I've done that with a recipe. Just totally skipped over an important ingredient. Duh. Good thing I'm not a brain surgeon.

What's Cooking?

The kitchen smells heavenly.  I made vegetable beef soup, think it's the first time I've done that.  It's for lunch tomorrow and...
