As The Elliptical Turns, or Has Vicki Flossed Her Teeth Today?

Artisan Bread (GONE) In 5 Minutes A Day

It's been a very busy day. I got a head start in the neighborhood of 3 a.m. when I couldn't sleep. I went downstairs and wrapped a scarf around my neck and a shawl around my shoulders, but I have the heat turned down so low in the middle of the night that I really needed a blanket. Or a bigger shawl.

I read blogs for a bit, maybe commented on one or two but maybe not. I crawled back into bed, frozen to the core, and tried in vain to warm up. I even pulled another small down comforter up around my shoulders. One must be careful, as it could easily -- instantly -- go the other way and I'd be hot and sweaty. I finally fell back asleep and was sleeping soundly at 7 a.m. when DH woke me up. Ali was here and I was to accompany her to a meeting at 8:30.

It's been go-go-go since then -- and it's good, I got a LOT of stuff done. And I baked bread!! Homemade Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day today!! It was lovely, too, but the only shots I have are close-ups -- it may take 5 minutes to make, but far less than 5 to devour. I didn't even need to read the part about how to store it. It was delicious, too. I can't wait to bake another loaf!

And Katie made supper! She made chili just like she used to have at the Chili Pepper, which isn't open anymore, but their seasonings and recipes are still available!

So, no elliptical today. I'll go to bed at a good time tonight and get up to do it again tomorrow. I did take the time to floss this morning. ; ) Eventually it'll all come together!



I have GOT to make that bread.

Too funny- I've never managed to get a shot of a whole loaf either- we always eat at least part of too soon. Isn't it amazing that it owrks?


The bread disappears pretty fast over here, too. I kind of fell off the bread wagon over the holidays but I'm ready to get going with it again. I only did 15 minutes of wii fit yesterday but I plan on doing 30 again today.


The smell of the bread would be wonderful. Must get that book. I take a Tylenol PM about 9:00 and it helps me stay asleep all night. It's especially nice after a sleepless night.


I love bread - LOVE - and it never lasts in our house either, so storage has never been a concern around these parts either. I should pull the bread maker out and put it on the counter for the rest of the winter.


Gotta get that book! Or go buy me some bread...


Best wishes for finding some comfortable sleep! That bread is delicious...we had a new loaf this evening. Yours looks gorgeous.


Pretty smashing! Looks similar to the no-knead method I just tried out. If I was able to bake every day, I would have to exercise twice as much. Have you tried taking your calcium supplement at bedtime?
