Snow and Homemade Bread

{I am a little behind on this post. I've had this draft since February}

Wow! Look at these pictures.

This just doesn't happen very often where we live.

The kids even got out of school an hour early and started school 2 hours late the next day. What a fun storm!

And it was the perfect excuse to make this:

Here is the recipe for 2 loaves:

2 1/2 cups warm water
2 T yeast
1/2 cup honey
5 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (or spelt)
1/2 cup gluten
2 tsp sea salt
4 T non-fat dry milk
2 T oil (or butter)
2 T vinegar
1/2 cup potato flakes

Combine water, yeast and honey. Let bubble.

Mix ingredients in order listed with dough hook attachment for 12-15 minutes.

Let rise until double.

Punch down and shape into loaf or rolls.

Let rise again.

Bake at 375 for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and sounds hollow when slightly tapped.
