our daily bread

A few weeks ago we finally bought a gas tank for our stove (since our apartment building sits in the middle of a construction zone, the gas lines aren't hooked up just yet). I've loved being able to prepare meals at home again -- there is something immensely satisfying about sustaining oneself "from scratch". My brother's girlfriend gave us this cookbook for Christmas, and I've slowly been working my way through the recipes. Last week, I baked a loaf of the rye soda bread found in the book. Served with a generous helping of herbed butter and a big bowl of soup, it was the perfect meal for a cozy night at home and again as lunch at work the next day.

Thanks, Hillary! :)
