I Burned the Bread!

Yes, I did.  I was using a clay cooker in the oven.  (As instructed by my husband, Richard!)  I was following the instructions meticulously.  It said to bake for 45 minutes covered and 5 minutes uncovered to brown.  After, 30 minutes I checked on it because it was smelling done, if that makes sense.  I took the top off and the top of the loaf was toasty brown.  I took it out and the bottom of the loaf was a much darker brown and black in spots.  65MD was not to be deterred.  He ate three slices.  I ate only one.  It was a little salty for my taste.  No more bread making for me until I get the sour dough starter.

Just as an FYI, I had a steroid injection in my left hip today.  Once the pain from the injection site subsided, I'll know if it helped.  I could use some prayers and good wishes.


  1. I'd say the Big Guy is telling you to stay away from bread. Or at least that is my interpretation. I hope the steroid helps!


    1. I agree. Sometimes, I'm a little dense and it takes a while for me to get the message.

  2. Who is their right mind would listen to their husband? LOL
    You are really determine to get your loaf of sour dough bread... just too funny for me.

    DISCLAIMER: If anyone read this, I'm not the post mentioned Richard ha ha ha

    I took a retirement course a while back and a doctor was invited to discuss health. She was saying that a significant number of men who brake a hip die within a year... not women. She said the best thing is to take calcium vitamin as early as possible to maintain good bones structure. I have been taking some since then.

    You are in my prayers and I sure wishes your injection help you and removed your pain.

    1. Yes, you are the Richard mentioned!!!

      Thank you for your prayers. I really appreciate them. FYI, the first thing any medical professional says to me when s/he sees my hips is "What happened, you're to young for this?" I totally agree. Apparently, I was born this way. I think I've got quite a few good years left in me!
