My house sold and a Lehman's gift card!
I know...Lehman's... you ask?
Yes, there is something about being able to make do and live off your land, that appeals to me.
Odd, I know.
Since I also cannot live without a trip to the cosmetics counter once a month.
Or a beauty salon.
And every garden I've ever planted has failed.
Where did these two sides of me come from?
They are so different!
I mean how odd is it that if you gave me $400, I would really be waivering between a Kate Spade dress or kitchen supplies from Lehman's???
Practicality will win out every time.
One thing I have ALWAYS wanted to do, is to bake my own bread.
I just have never been good at baking with yeast.
I want to get my own 25 lb. bin of Prairie Gold Wheat Berries
and grind my own flour with this mill.
and then bake it in my oven heated by a wood fire.
And I'll tell ya somethin' else...
I WILL have a farmhouse sink in my next kitchen!
When we moved to this farm 7 years ago, hubby promised me I could do whatever my heart desired on the inside. He said if you just will move here for me, you can decorate and remodel as you wish.
Well when I showed him the picture of the farmhouse sink I wanted, that promise went straight out those 1972 windows!
Hubby didn't like it.
Did you gals know you can get a farmhouse sink at Ikea for only $299?
I'm not saying I wouildn't love Kohler's vintage look sinks, Oh yes that would be my dream sink.
But if it comes down to the bare bones of either I get my farmhouse sink from Ikea or none at all, you bet I'm having that Ikea sink.
So yes I am assuming there will be some remodeling going on at the new home we will live in, wherever that may be. Even if the only thing I do is to install a farmhouse sink.
I have really gotten off track here.
I am going to try and bake my own bread. I am going to the health food store to buy a small portion of wheat berries and grind them up in my vitamix. And then I am going to try my hand at homemade bread.
I would love to not buy bread at the store anymore.
Do you guys have any advice for me?
Or good bread recipes?
