Of Home Made Bread, Pork Roast, and Noodles..




I'm getting the hang of bread, so today I added about a cup of whole wheat flour- awful tasty! The wife loves a pork roast, fatty, spiced, and simply roasted- a Boston butt- 4 lbs.... With noodles and a home made pork gravy, it came out to be a good snowy day meal!
Our Christmas party at the lodge was cancelled, so I have a Key lime cheesecake in the freezer waiting for the next event... Gooldammer,Roy...
In the immortal words of Jimmy Buffet song: "The weather is here, I wish you were beautiful" Winter has decended!

Ake- I'm actually glad! People are great, but the weather, and driving 190 miles round trip in it- made it a pass....
Doc- Good day to keep the oven on, ain't it?
DogB- I'm doing cookies, or brownies next- our kitchen is cold unless I'm cooking!

Just telling it like it is said...

I am definitely jealous of the bread since no one at my house can really cook I have to live vicarously thought my blogger friends....Sorry about the Christmas party...listen I went to a Christmas party last night that was sheshe-fufu and ummmmm I think I would have rather been at your house for dinner....the food was over priced and not good...what is a girl to do...I did my best to fake it but...it was terrible...oh the sufferage...

I love homemade bread... I should send you something to try. Olive Oil bread made with a starter. Yum.

MarmiteToasty said...

Buff, pork aint a deal if your in Ireland right now LOl ALL pork and pork products have been recalled due to high levels of somethingorother in them that can cause cancer, this will ruin the pork industry over in Ireland for many many years to come.....

Good job I dont do pork :) - but I do buy it for me lads cos they love it, especially a pork roast with crispy crackling :) and they couldnt live without bacon butties..

Marmie- I thought that one saint drove all of the pigs out of Ireland- cause we sure got a lot of fat, pale, red headed chicks over here now! I'm going to be lynched tonight, by a group of torch carryin' angry large-boned fair haired, fair skinned women- it's been a pleasure knowin' ya!...

MarmiteToasty said...

I will pray for your soul LOL

buffalodick said...

Mona said...

Season's Greetings to you & your Family Buf! :)

G-Man said...

Your bread looks as it should, risin perfectly and golden brown!

buffalodick said...

Lulda- Thanks! With my trusty vaccuum packer, who knows what could happen?
Mona- Thanks! Probably make a couple more cheesecake before season is over!
G-man- Thanks! Proofing the yeast, and warm rising temps are working!

TavoLini said...

Bread looks GREAT!

I'm baking all the time here, too--anything to warm up the kitchen a few degrees. Casseroles, bread, fries, pizza--if you can't cook it in the oven, I'm not making it :)

Anette said...

What cheek to cancel the party when you had such a fine cheese cake to bring!
The bread looks absolutely fabulous!

Anndi said...

I remember helping my aunt make bread, I loved that smell.

buffalodick said...

Tavolini- A warm kitchen in Michigan, with the fragrance of home made bread, is one of our few winter pleasures!
Anette- It was Ok! I didn't want to drive in that weather!
Anndi- I hope you mean the bread, and not the aunt while she was baking it... HeeHeeHee..

Beth said...

well, I'm very willing to put you out of your misery Buff. I know it's hard to ahve that whole cheesecake just sitting in your freezer like that, so since I love you so much, I will take it off your hands. No, don't thank me! Really, it's no problem. It's a hard job but someone's gotta do it. ;)

Preposterous Ponderings said...

There is nothing better than the scent of fresh baked bread!

Chef E said...

Man Buff- I can smell popcorn and bread...you are making me suffer that all I did was a punny bake today!

buffalodick said...

Beth- I just don't know if it would travel well...
PreProp- I think we all agreed on that one!
Chef- Damn! I forgot to buy popcorn at the store!
