Why reading and writing is the road to happiness...

This blog started years ago as a place to muse on the life projects keeping me entertained. It is no surprise then that it has morphed into a blog about my reading as that has been my lifelong project. Here I review lots of different types of books, with an added focus on Australian women writers. Hope you enjoy - feel free to contribute to the conversation!

Breaking Bread

“If thou tastest a crust of bread, thou tastest all the stars and all the heavens.”
                       Robert Browning (1812-1889) English poet

I thought I would have a crack at bread because if I practice making cakes, someone has to eat them... actually, bread is my weakness anyway. A few years ago I did the low carb challenge and was a lean, mean fighting machine. I keep thinking I should go back to that regime to lose the last bit of baby weight but... uuggh. It was a nightmare - no bread, no pasta, no rice. Miserable. Sooooo, I'm still on the bread.
This is a basic white bread roll recipe from www.taste.com.au
One of the rolls looked pretty good, but the others were a bit mangled. And they tasted - well, a bit doughy if truth be told. But I think I'm not used to eating white bread as well. Next time I'll try wholemeal flour.
But - I think this was a pretty good attempt for the baking challenge.
Now, this week onwards, I start to reduce my bread intake again *sigh
