Yea for Food and People and Blogs

Today as I was perusing the blogs, I came across a recipe for a beautiful braided Garlic Herb Bread.

The thing I really liked about it was that I could come home after school and get it made, let it rise and have delicious hot bread for dinner. Intrigued? For the recipe, click here.*

Then, I was reading Charlotte's blog and she posted about her discovery of leftover ham, which she turned into this delicious and practical soup (it's at the bottom of the post). EPIPHANY!!! I had a ziploc bag in my fridge of ham that I needed to either get used or frozen. The weather outside is quite cold, I had this inspiration to cook this bread and the soup sounded like a perfect match. So, because of wonderful people who talk about delicious food on their blogs for all to enjoy, my family was served this tonight.
The best thing about all of this was it was all made from things I have in my house all the time anyway (almost)**

*If you are NOT using instant yeast, don't forget to mix the yeast with the water first eventhough the recipe says different.

**I didn't have any dill but the bread was still delicious and I didn't put the corn in the soup.

Okay, I am fasting today and this post is killing me. My stomach literally started gurling when I saw the pictures. Thanks a lot.

Hey, it sure looks yummy! There is nothing better than bread and soup....and butter!

And the verification word is "humenede" - could this be an alternate spelling for 'homemade' or 'human-made'? Discuss.

Humaneed? Like something human's need. I'm secretly wishing the 2nd to last e was an a and then is could be some weird combination of hummus and lemonade or something like that...maybe it's french...
