Today I had to take a day off to cook. We stop each morning at 10:15 for a break and Norman has a cup of coffee and either a country biscuit or a donut. Then we stop again in the afternoon at 3 for a movie or TV show and Norman has a piece of pie or an apple muffin. I was out of donuts and the bread was gone so today I made three and a half dozen donuts and two loaves of bread. I make all of our pastry because I only use stone ground whole wheat four. Norman has at least two slices of whole wheat bread a day and it has taken care of our digestive problems but it does take a lot of time to do all the baking. I don’t eat as much of the baked goods because I have to lose some weight, I have always had a weight problem but when I stopped smoking I really had trouble keeping my weight to a reasonable weight so I watch what I eat.
Norman worked in the garden a little this morning. The foot prints were back today and Norman thinks she ate more of the beans. I could not get down today but will look tomorrow when we get back from shopping. Norman put out another Mint-X bag to protect more of the beans, he thinks the ones I put out Monday helped so we will see —
Must call for flour. I get my stone ground flour from Littleton, NH Grist mill- wonderful flour and very reasonable. Have a great day.
