green the church
while aug was at gymnastics camp today (9-12) i went to a local farm and bought 10 lbs of sour cherries, pitted, cleaned, and right off the truck from michigan. it isn't local per se but it is local-esque. plus for some reason i feel the best cherries come from michigan, though i have no proof of such inkling. im going to make preserves, a pie, and dry some because if you have been on my friends list for any length of time you will know i greatly desire to pretty much live off of dried cherries.
i keep trying new bread recipes. the first one was only white in the recipe so i did half whole wheat/half white AP flour and it was excellent but a little dense. maybe next time ill just add more yeast? i've heard good things about dough enhancers. bandwagon here i come! today im trying out a rolled oat bread that if successful ill add to my food blog. ill update this with photos when it is done.
and now for some random photos
