Potato Bread

I was very happy with the way this bread turned out. It rose beautifully and had a very light, soft texture, maybe not as flavorful as the mixed grain and whole wheat breads, but very good.

We are a little  warmer this morning.  It is now 20°, but we  got 2-4 inches of snow overnight and it is snowing lightly now.  No wind, thankfully.

The tractor didn't start yesterday so DH is on a run into town to pick up something to pour into the gas tank.  He kept a light on it all day but it  still didn't start.  He thinks the internal heater has failed.  It is the one we feed hay with so imperative to get it repaired.  If worse comes to worse, we can always just turn the cows into the stored hay but that isn't ideal.

Our son and grands are coming in today from KC where they spent the night with our daughter and her family....en-route the long way home from a ski trip to Colorado.  I talked to the youngest granddaughter last night and it sounds like they had a great time.  She got a cell phone for Christmas and uses it at every opportunity.  It is a new day!

I am fixing our son's favorite dinner today.  Fried chicken, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans, a salad and rolls.

Dessert  will be the chocolate cake I baked yesterday.  I haven't had a test piece............I am proud of myself for resisting!


  1. Your potato bread sounds great! You've gotten me in the mood to make bread.

    Your lunch today sounds like it will be yummy.

    It was 45 earlier feeling it was 38. That is COLD for us.


  2. Glenda, that is beautiful bread!
