The second sad thing that happened this past week is I made some truly nasty bread. I am so excited though, because I get to keep trying. I bought a wheat mill/grinder last week and I was looking forward to grinding up some funky, healthy grains and making the best bread/rolls ever. I went and purchased some spelt, kamut, amaranth, oats groats, brown rice, and millet.
I knew this was just going to be the most amazing experience ever, so I waited for the girls to get home from school and then I cracked open the can of hard red wheat I have had in the basement for 4 years and NEVER had any intention of using. We ground up some wheat to get my new wheat mill warmed up and then we started in on the spelt, amaranth, and oats groats.
This is big red's replacement I bought yesterday. We will see if we actually sort as we go! When Matt got home last night, the kids were playing in the red tub in the living room. He said "What has happened to my red tub? Oh Rachel, we can't throw this away. It has too many memories. My mom bought this for me when I got home off my mission and it has been around for a long time. We just can't chuck it." I assured him I would put it safely in the basement because I figured he would say something like that!
