The Best Homemade Bread Recipe for the Soul

 

I bake bread when I am going through a tough time.  It just feels good to bake.  It also feels good to eat bread without preservatives and additives and whatever-it-ives.

I lost my Grandpa { Pop } this week. Although he was technically a senior citizen, he was truly a wild teenager in his heart. He knew how to laugh.  He could tell a great story.  He used to ‘pretend’ he was old if he wanted to get his way. He was hilarious.  He still had all his marbles.  Sharp as a whip.  He had it together.  He didn’t miss a beat.

Pop was a beautiful beacon to our family. An incredible blueprint on how to live.  He taught others how to forgive and forget – purely by example.  He never lectured. He taught us that sometimes you have to be silent to be heard.  He just did all the right stuff.  I admired that about him ~ always.

He is quite simply, unforgettable.

The loss of my Pop caused me to pause.  It was a good reminder to stop, slow down and breathe.  I baked.  I reminisced.  I reflected.  I fell deep into thought.   I cried.  I listened to music.  I cried over and over again.

I baked some more.

I have baked about 29 loaves of bread in the last couple of days.  I could officially open a bakery.  I have played every sad song on earth.  Do you find that when you are going through a tough time, it seems that every sad song seems to hit home?

Whattup-wit-dat?!

Here is a favourite song of mine that I thought you may enjoy.   It is sort of a love song, but it seemed fitting this week because it is about STARS in the sky.  As I reflect on the beautiful souls that have left this incredible earth …. staring at the sky is a poignant reminder that they are out there watching over us.

This song hit my ‘play it a million times’ playlist this week.

HOMEMADE BREAD RECIPE :

The homemade bread recipe is filled with good mojo. It comes from a beautiful friend of mine ~Marg.  She has the biggest heart.  The kindest soul.  Her incredible inner beauty transfers into the recipe for me.

 I hope it does the same for you.

P.S. I used unbleached all purpose organic flour.  You can also use whole wheat flour too. Just start with the 4 cups of whole wheat flour and when you add the additional cups of flour, use all purpose flour.

Tried, tested and true.

With much love,

Lynne
