a simple step in slowing down.
making our own bread.
years ago when they were all the rage, i got a bread machine adamant that i would use it all the time and that it wasn't going to be just a passing phase, but alas it was buried deep in the back of a cupboard for years until the other day Hugo was asking about where things come from and he asked about bread. " can we make some?"
that was all i needed for a prompt in the right direction, so i dragged out the machine and we made our first loaf tonight.
there is something quite satisfying about baking your own bread, and the fact that my boys can mix it, cook it and then eat it, is a great way to start simplifying our life a little and becoming more sustainable.
