Shake & Bake BABY, Shake & Bake

Todays weather sucked...big much for Elmer Fudd and thongs: (re..the comments section):

 This is what I was greeted with this morning...freezing what did I do...BAKE BABY BAKE

I do a Christmas bread thing..a kinda Italian, Greek loaf type thing..all braided and stuff..I make for friends who have been nice and taunt those who has been naughty (to my enemies, I f*rt in your general direction)....Usually  try to find a dipping oil to put with it,,,ummm, blue cheese and garlic (once again, I f*rt in your general direction) are a few pics of the  momentous occasion...and while I was waiting for the dough to rise..I tossed in a deep dish Apple Crisp for the rest of the clan..that won't last long, trust me on this one (it is now 9:55pm..and 1/2 of the crisp has mysteriously disappeared)...vegetarian free for all:

then it was"rolled and braided"

So there ya go...and all of this while the BOSS slept after a particularly nasty 12 hr I love her ability to be adaptable...and my ability to be as quiet as a church mouse when required!!!!

If you would like the recipe's, shoot me an email at and I will scan the  recipes into a jpg...course, I put my own twist on all the stuff..add extras,miss some stuff (tomato's...yuch!!), lotsa extra Garlic...ummmmmm...great for dipping with balsamic vinegar and olive oil if nothing else is available

Supposed to be running tomorrow night but suspect I will be Christmas shopping instead ...mi vida loca baby..........later eh!!!

I am jealous of your baking abilities :P I planned on running outside since it was going to be warmer today, but it poured and rained so my plans where foiled :/

LOL on the elmer fudd :D

When your honey woke up to the smell of baking bread, I bet she was real thankful ;)

Oh, and screw running...go shop!

Lee,,,,no it's not mine, I stole it from a mag...but I made it mine, I wish I was that creative.

Run like you have never run before

You had me at Blue Cheese and Garlic. Gotta say, I'm loving your big 'ol fonts for old farts like me. That break looks awesome. Seems you are quite the renaisance man (where is the spell checker?)
