more homemade goodness

the latest loaf of bread we have been devouring around here has been the roasted garlic and potato bread. again, from the artisan bread in 5 minutes a day book. i used just under the recommended amount of garlic (not by choice) and upped the potato a bit. it still turned out delicious! it was so soft with the perfect amount of crispiness to the crust. my mouth is watering now just thinking about it.
i am curious to see if my bread baking slows down in the coming warmer months. i may have to figure out how to use the bread machine. it can't heat up my house the way the oven does right?
i love bread
***also, if you do use this book and haven't checked out the website i recommend it. lots of great ideas and tips there!***

the other thing we have been eating in large quantities is strawberries. we have to put them on the top shelf in the fridge so the boy isn't thieving them all day. we went to buy some plants for the garden we are soon to attempt and decided to try to grow as many strawberries as possible (and still leave room for some vegetables).
more berries please

so now that we are about to start our garden, do any of you have some great gardening advice? we are doing raised beds as the soil, i mean clay here is rather daunting to me. i'd love to hear from you!

  1. Not that I feel one to advise on gardens...but I have been posting about our garden progress over at my blog, Color Your World Pink.
    And, although this is the first time commenting here, I keep you listed as inspiration on my Craft-Crazy site.
