Pi's school put on a play yesterday called The American Farmer. It was written by one of the fourth grade teachers and details the importance of American farmers. The play was really well written and executed beautifully by the fourth graders. All 76 of them got a part, including my little NY apple farmer.
Ten minutes before leaving for school, I thought it would be cute if Pi had something apple related in her hair. Some felt, glue gun, and an alligator clip and I came up with this. I've got a box of 100 of those clips that I'd bought years ago, when I thought I had the patience to straighten my own hair (didn't happen, ha!).
Pi looked at me as if I'd lost my mind when I showed it to her, but she humored me and wore it to the play.
Not one to waste an entire day off from work (ha, who am I kidding? I love a good wasted day), I made a go at baking homemade bread for the first time. I tried this Honey Wheat bread recipe.
It wasn't perfect but not bad for my first loaf of bread. I realized that I undercooked it. It should have been a lot more golden on the outside and the inside was slightly doughy. Also, next time, I think I'll add more honey. Its definitely edible though. Two of Pi's friends were over for dinner last night and one of the little girls happily ate 3 slices. I can't wait to try another loaf soon.
Oh, just one more thing...kneading bread is a @&^$*%@$%!!
