Making Homemade Bread

I had decided the other night that on Friday Selena and I were going to make homemade bread. It wasn’t until we got started that I realized trying to take pictures was not going to even be an option. I don’t know what I was thinking but we had fun anyway.

Selena learned about and smelled the Yeast. She thought it was fun to help kneed the dough. I wish you would have seen her eyes when I pulled the dough out after it had raised. Again I wasn’t thinking after the mess on my hands earlier, the camera was the last thought on my mind.

Selena had a blast punching the dough down and helping me put it in the pans. I don’t think she really realized what we were making as when the bread came out of the oven, Selena looked at me and said, “Grandma you made bread!” I had to laugh and thought what part of our discussion did she miss.


She enjoyed the bread very much, and had her good share.


I don’t think I have to say how much Papa loved the homemade bread. It’s been a long time since I have made bread. I do believe we will be doing more of this though, it was fun sharing it with Selena.

  1. I will happily take any leftover homemade bread you have.

  2. I would probably make it more often, except that I tend to eat more than my good share :)

  3. We love homemade bread here, and we do like to make it :) Glad you and Selena had fun with it.

  4. This looks yummy! I haven't done homemade bread, but we are doing homemade pizza almost every week, and Anna is also very fascinated with rising dough.
