Vienna Bread

Ingredients:  Water, Milk, Butter, Bread Flour, Sugar, Gluten, Salt, and Yeast.

The past few weeks have been more than difficult.  For those of you who are trying to follow me I apologize for my long absence.  Know that I am still baking when I can, but finding time to write has become increasingly difficult.  I have had so much on my mind recently that I completely forgot about a class the other day.  I have been dancing for 4 years, going to college for 6, and for the first time in my life I completely forgot about a dance class.  I didn't even realize my mistake until a day later when I was trying to plan out my Thursday and realized that I had forgotten my Tuesday class.  On top of everything else, my car is on its last leg.  I have been driving her since I was 16 and we have been on many wonderful road trips together.  Just me and my Pontiac named Ilsa on the open road.  A mechanic in town said that it would be $1200 to get her repaired, but since she is only worth $1200 that kind of seems out of the question.   So I am taking her home to a best friend so that he can give a second opinion on her.  I have learned over the years to never trust an unknown mechanic.  I am so very glad to have trust mechanic that I can take my girl to, even if he lives three hours away.

The bread was simple, tasty, and perfect this morning.  Sometimes a simple loaf of fresh homemade white bread is all you need to be cheered up.

Hope you have a much better weekend than me, I guess it could be worse, I could be my dad cooped up at home recuperating from a knee surgery.
