BREAD SURPRISE TO END THE WEEKEND


It's been a good weekend, got a lot done (pics to come in upcoming posts), and now it's starting to rain.  Perfect timing!  And speaking of perfect timing...in honor of our first few weeks with the bees, 2nd Man whipped up a new bread for us to try.  He decided to make some white bread and added 10 grain cereal to the batch and then added honey to the dough!

Fresh baked bread
A nice, golden yellow in color...and when it was sliced open...

10 Grain Honey Bread
...lots of grains and a nice texture.  And the honey was a nice surprise. Of course, now I can't wait until we can use honey from our own hives!

Go bees!

Now that the weekend is officially done, I will catch up on comments this week, have a bit of a headache at the moment and will be going to bed early.  

Hope you had a great weekend!

That bread looks amazing. And no doubt smelt and tasted even better. Yay for 2nd man.

Oh yum! Please ask 2nd man to share his recipe! I have several lbs of honey that were gifted to me and am trying to find ways to use it.

Oh Yum! Looks divine. A nice warm slice of homemade bread drizzled with honey..........pure goodness.
Mr. Breadman............please share the recipe.

The bread looks like it belongs in a cookbook photo! Beautiful!

I did my second hive check yesterday - post tomorrow. I hope your bees are doing as well as mine. :)

Are you on twitter? @FarmersOfTheUK has a different farm running the account each week - it's very diverse and interesting! - and this week it's a "bee farmer." I thought of you :)

That bread looks delicious. Hope your headache went away.

Looks DELICIOUS! What a great innovation of his bread - 2nd Man is so creative! When your bees start producing honey, it will be even better with your own honey!
2nd Man, would you please share your recipe?

That bread looks wonderful! Congrats on the success with the bees so far, it's very fun to watch the progress to honey someday! Rebel is a doll, love that he follows you around. Louie would be jealous, lol.

1st Man said...

I will pass that along. Thank you both!!! OH our own honey will be so exciting!!!

1st Man said...

Oh the smell is always great huh? And yes, thank you for that I will pass the word along.

1st Man said...

Thank you! It did smell heavenly, fresh bread in the oven makes the house smell divine doesn't it?

1st Man said...

I will tell him, definitely! I think it used a 1/2 cup of honey or maybe 3/4 cup. Thanks!!!

1st Man said...

I hope our bees come through. Seems amazing to have something producing like that on our property. Thank you!!!

1st Man said...

Oh, it's definitely pure goodness, ha. I will get him to to dictate the recipe to me. ;-)

1st Man said...

Hey sweet lady!!! Thanks for the kind words, he will appreciate it!! YES! Bees are awesome, check out today's post and I'll watch for yours. So so happy!!!

1st Man said...

I'm not on twitter but I feel like I need to be. I should learn how to use it, ha. Bee farmer? That's cool, synchronicity!!

1st Man said...

Thank you and thank you!! Yes, the headache went away but it was so bad, I was actually getting nauseous. Took time to fall asleep but woke up headache free, ha. Thank you!

1st Man said...

I know, still amazing to think we, hopefully, will have our own. I've bought it in stores for years, heck, my whole life, and now we will have our own. Yes, I'll get that from him.

1st Man said...

I'm working on it!! :-)

1st Man said...

Thank you, very much. And yes Louie and GiGi both would be jealous, ha. Thanks for stopping by! ;-)

1st Man said...

I know you are, you've made some great stuff. I will definitely get him to share that.
