They have bread here? We've gotta get the recipe for bread.

Do you ever want to type things you don't say in real life?  I often catch myself wanting to type the word (or is it technically a contraction?) y'all.  I don't think I've ever said y'all in my life but I always want to type it in posts.  Weird.

Anywho.  You know how I love to bake bread?  I thought I had found the most wonderful bread recipe in Grandma VanDoren's white bread, and I still think it's good.  But I just tried Becky Bread, named after food blogger TeriLyn's mom.  She writes some yummy stuff over at A Foodie Stays Fit.  I wish I had half her style.  Anyway-we were VT companions once upon a time and have stayed current with each other through the wonder of the internet.

While Lucy was gone on a playdate I baked bread for our family party tomorrow.  I tried the braided method and seriously, for someone who braids on a nearly daily basis you'd think I'd be a pro.  When it comes to braiding dough, I had no clue.  I kept having to untwist it and try again.  Hopefully my "technique will improve with time." (Name that movie)

This bread is the best white bread I have ever tried.  Hands down.

oh my gosh, it turned out beautifully! nice job! The crust looks amazing. Great, now I want some. :)

I always want to type y'all in writing too. But now that I live in North Carolina, I actually do say it in real life now so I feel more justified in typing it. :)
