Simple pleasures

Mrs ERJ made a kettle of soup last night.

I made whole-wheat, yeast-rising rolls.

Life is good.


  1. I do love that whole grain flavor over the pasty white flour taste . I guess it is an acquired taste but we have been whole-graining it for so many years I can't hardy bear to eat white flour breads and rolls . When we first started experimenting with whole grain cookery back in the late 60's and early 70's I met an old German farmer in Cardington that grew and milled his own grains . Wheat , Rye , Barley , Speltz , and a few others he would sell us for 50 cents per pound . Sadly he passed in 79 and my whole grain sourcing got many times more complicated and expensive . He used to advise me not to waste my money at " The Beer Garden" , heh . He was a great guy .

  2. And the aroma! I do enjoy the scent of yeast working it's magic.
