Erin's Soaking Wheat in the Breadmaker Experiment

Erin's experiment ended with a lovely looking wheat loaf that should be very digestible for those with difficulty eating whole grains. She did a fabulous job of experimenting where I couldn't go as I do not have a bread machine. Kudos go out to her! She's one of the folks that tipped me off on soaking the grains. She's done it for a long time with her pancakes, waffles and muffins, but not with bread.

As for me, with a new baby in the house, we're eating ABI5MAD (light wheat or European peasant loaf - which has rye and whole wheat) regularly and my honey oatmeal bread which I made ahead of the baby and froze in the new deep freeze. I also milled about 10 lbs of berries while Mom was here and that is in the deep freeze as well. I'm waiting because my dad is coming from Montana in a couple of weeks. He just started making bread (Wonder Bread) and has been pretty pleased with his results. I'm proud of him for trying as he had never had success with bread in the past. I hope to enlighten him to the ABI5MAD method while he's here visiting.

Ellie's Debut

I know I've been MIA, but life is busy (but wonderful) here. I will be next linking you to Erin's Wheat Soaking in the Bread Machine Experiments. You won't be disappointed. She's a chemist and she knows how to run an experiment! You might like her weight loss blogging, too!

She's here!

Eleanor (Ellie) Margaret made her debut today at 3:18pm. She weighed 8lb 11.8oz and was 21.5" long. She's beautiful with long dark hair and very sweet face. I will post pictures later!
