Cooking with Elle and The Boy: Weekly Bread

Yesterday Suzanne mentioned that today would be “I see what you’re saying day.”? (I don’t know why I get pulled into these kinds of things.)? And since people hear Vlog and think me I thought I should stand up to my reputation.? Truth is the boy and I got bored the other week and decided to do something fun.? We filmed a cooking show.? (actually 2, but I haven’t edited the other one)

In our “pilot” episode we made bread.? This is the bread I make every week for toast and sandwiches.? (a foccacia loaf is also shown.? I made it that day too, but didn’t film that)

I’m not sure if this is going to become a regular feature around here or not.? We had a ton of fun doing this, but it took me 3 hours to edit this little 15 minute video.

The recipe comes from “The Bread Bible” by Rose Levy Beranbaum, and is the Cracked Wheat Loaf.? I have stopped putting the actual bulgar wheat into the loaf because I’m a fan of smooth bread.? So that step is omitted.? I will also note that it took all day to film this.? We started at 10:30 a.m. and I put the bread in the oven at 8:00 p.m.? That is why you’ll see my wardrobe change.? And please no comments on the pants.? I don’t know why I keep them let alone wear them.

    I think one of the best things you can do with your children is cook. It happens in the heart of the home, teaches them responsibility, patience, reading, measurements…the list goes on and on. It’s very common to see our children cooking with us in our kitchen…and it warms my heart every time.

    Kudos for you, and thanks for the Vlog.

    The foccia looked fabulous also!!
