My sister Ann just sent me a text–they have arrived back in Arkansas and it’s HOT there, 90 degrees–she asked if they could come back to Montana. Well, it’s not hot here–nasty cold wind and 38 degrees. During the night it rained and rained–this morning we woke to a bit of snow. Big Timber received about 4 inches of heavy wet snow causing lots of tree and plant damage. But, we still aren’t complaining–after the nasty summer we had, this weather is a welcome relief!
In 2008 I bought the bread cookbook–Artisan Bread In Five Minutes A Day and began baking lots of bread. One of the tools for baking bread with that artisan, crunchy crust is a baking stone. I had a Pampered Chef stone but it didn’t last long cracking right down the middle. In 2009 I purchased a thicker stone from Amazon.com and have been using it frequently. Wednesday night we had homemade pizza and I told Ann, I think my baking stone is cracking–
Yep, time for a new one again.
The Cowboy has puttered most of the day–packing stuff for Arizona. We took a walk down to the mailbox both of us bundled up as if it was really cold–our blood must have thinned??? I worked in the quilt studio making binding for another quilt I’ve finished and I made a quilted pouch for our spotting scope.
There’s a big pot of chili simmering on the stove and bread rising–supper smells wonderful! More photos from our trip to the Charles M. Russell National Wildlife Refuge.
