Bread has been a sort of therapy for me lately. It is sort of my prayer and meditation time. This one is special so close to the Feasts of St. Teresa of Avila and to the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi. I often think about the way they must have lived their lives and how wonderful it must have been to be able to constantly think of God. I never expect that I will have that kind of attention, patience or virtue. But, it is nice to know that living simply with good bread and wine (or diet coke) can be as enjoyable a life as any other extravagant lifestyle.
I made both the bread and this photo in this post. I hope you enjoy the glimpse into my kitchen.
