I graduated with a BA in Archaeology (actually Anthropology as those were most of my classes) and History. I have two daughters and am married, with a dog and a cat. I love researching and writing and hope to one day have a career that incorporates those loves and my majors in a creative way. I also have an AA in Psychology. Currently I am working on my Master in Archiving and Public History. My focus is on historical receipt books that were most frequently authored by housewives to keep track of all the household income, expense, day to day journals and recipes for food, medicine and other homemade mixtures.
Well, maybe this doesn't qualify for a frenzy, but I did do some baking yesterday. Nothing special, just some bread and cookies, both of which my youngest likes a lot. I did not make them bento sized, but Paige did get a cookie in with her lunch today, wrapped separately of course.
Bread baking evokes such good feelings. There is the smell of the yeast, the molding it with your hands, the smoothness of the dough before you put it to rise and of course the aroma of baking bread to wake up those taste buds. I have been baking for many years, though not so much for a while now. I don't know why I stopped.
This isn't for bento, but it is for a picky child, so I thought I would do a little blog with some pictures. I will be posting another entry just for her bento today.
The top is Egg Bread, both a loaf for toasting and French toast and some clover rolls for om nomming. The lower picture are snickerdoodles, half of which are already gone. I packed one with Paige's bento today.
