Thursday Inspiration: Bread



"The smell of good bread baking, like the sound of lightly flowing water, 
is indescribable in its evocation of innocence and delight."
MFK Fisher

When I was 12, my parents sold the home we had lived in for 10 years. My mother claims that it sold to the people who came by the day she had baked buns. The yeasty, warm scent of fresh bread was too much to resist.

Baking bread brings a satisfaction similar to that of making soup or completing a needlework or art project. All the ingredients are brought together and given time to meld, with the result being something that nourishes not only the body, but the soul. I do love baking, and eating bread, although I eat much less of it than I used to.

Gorgeous photography!
Fondly,

They sure do look delicious Lorrie. I don't bake bread. And I don't eat it much either. But, I love home made bread!

Great post - and I bet there are a lot of us that want bread for dinner. My dad used to have bread for every dinner - without fail. We don't serve bread for dinner unless it goes with something specific. I can almost smell bread baking with all these lovely posts.

Good looking bread there! I remember baking bread when we were trying to sell our house! And putting drops of vanilla extract on the lightbulbs and turning the lights on.

Your bread looks delicious Lorrie. I remember when we had our first house for sale, the rep told me to bake cookies the day of the open house.
