“Snow Day”

We had a “snow day” today.  I say “snow day” because they canceled local school last night before a single flake fell from the sky.  In fact, it didn’t start snowing until 9am and stopped by 2pm.  A week ago, they were predicting 2-4″‘; last night, they said only 1″.  However, we may have gotten a whopping quarter inch.  It was lackluster to say the least.

Regardless to the quantity, there’s something about snow that makes me want to bake.  Maybe it’s because bread compliments the soup that’s cooking on the stove.  Maybe it’s the way that fresh baking bread makes the whole house feel warm.  Or maybe it’s the extra heat the oven generates.   Whatever the reason, it was a great way to use up some of my pantry extra (I hoard baking supplies year around), and it provided free entertainment.

Before the day was over, I made a huge pot of bean soup, two 2lb loaves of yeast bread, and a loaf of banana nut bread.  I also washed three loads of laundry.  A pretty productive snow day!  However, I just couldn’t seem to get out of my pajamas.

    I too would like to know what recipe! I use one from Williams and Sonoma but I bet yours is way healthier!
