homemade run, homemade bread

Hello! A flower to brighten your day.IMG_3603Plus a sunrise.IMG_3601I started running quite early this morning, in order to sneak in a couple miles before I met up with East Nasty IMG_3609We did a fast 5k together. I guess I’ll never have to worry about finding good spots for hill repeats in my new hood.IMG_3619After the official route ended, I did two more with a few other club members.IMG_3610It was a hot and sweaty run! I almost stopped and took a rest in this chair, but I didn’t want to ruin its plush leather lining.IMG_3604After the group split up, I headed home on a two-mile journey to hit ten miles even. Good start to the day!IMG_3620Another good way to kick off your morning… home.made.bread.homemade breadAnthony’s parents got us a bread maker as a housewarming gift, and it has transformed my life.homemade bread Bye-bye, overpriced and boring store bread… hello, super cheap and super delicious homemade loaf.homemade breadFor my first batch of bread, I kept it simple and made a basic white blend (with some poppyseeds thrown in for fun). Tasted great with a bit of butter and a side of bacon :)homemade loaf of breadFor my second loaf, I got a little adventurous (with the help of Anthony’s mom, who is a breadmaking pro), and did a white/rye/chickpea flour mix with sunflower seeds, flax, sesame seeds, and chia. It was pretty intense.homemade breadAnd oh so delicious! Have a great day!

  • Do you have a bread machine?!
  • Last time you spotted street furniture?
  • Random question – have you ever seen a wild dog? (We saw one today and it was freaky.)

  1. Ahhhh there is almost nothing better than homemade bread, but you are right….it is best out of a bread machine….I have been making bread without one, and I have done very well, but I know it would be a lot easier with one! Yum! And nice running this weekend :)

    • i thought it would be more labor intensive, but making bread is super easy! i am shocked. you should get a bread maker :)

    • it’s quickly making its way to my top favorite kitchen gadgets (behind my vitamix, slow cooker, and OXO garlic press….)

  2. I love my bread machine. Only downside is that the loaves are so good, they never last more than a day in our house! Your bread looks delicious!
