Baking Day

This is something of a continuation of the baking procedures first experienced by our granddaughters at Christmas time. The old-fashioned kitchen was again the centre of today's baking activities. We've had our granddaughters stay with us for the last couple of days while Derek and Airdrie were attending the Northern Voice convention at UBC.

Today, the plan was to bake some "pulla bread" again. So, here's how this evolved:

The final result:

It tasted good, too. They even made some for Mom and Dad - sugar-free for him - and, I'm sure, they'll eat a lot of it themselves. As mentioned in the Christmas post, it's nice to see a family tradition carried on.
