One of life’s simplest pleasures has got to be eating cake or bread still warm from the oven. In my dream world, I’m up before the crack of dawn everyday and, by the time the sun is up and my family is getting ready for the day, there will be warm cake or bread on the breakfast table. And, on the side, homemade jam and cheese, and home-cured ham.
But I have yet to find that intersection between my dream world and my real world. Yes, I bake breads and cakes. Yes, we occasionally make jam. Yes, I have made ham (no preservatives, of course). No, I haven’t tried making cheese yet. The part that ruins my dream world is that we never seem to have home baked bread or cake, homemade jam and home-cured ham all on the same day.
Maybe, someday, when we’re better organized and we have the proper storage space… For now, we’re happy enough that we get to enjoy home baked bread and cakes even when there’s no homemade jam or ham to go with them.
Because Sam loves cinnamon rolls, I baked a cake version for her. Well, for all of us, actually. This was breakfast a couple of weeks ago. »
