I´m a bit tired and a bit confused to be honest. I and my dogs got up real early today and when we came back home I started to bake a bread. I got several different american bread mixes from my friend Joyce that writes “Octoberfarm”. I did do the Cherry Almond Scone mix the other week and got a bit surprised. It was much sweeter than I thought it should be. Normally my scones are neutral, perhaps a bit salty. So for me this kind of scones worked great without anything on it, like cheese or jam. It would have been perfect with some icecream I think.






Today I started to bake the Limpa Sweet Rye bread. I went upstairs during the first fermentattion and fell asleep. When I woke up again I was totally convinsed that I already had written todays blog and got very confused when I realised I hadn´t :-) :-) I must have dreamed writing it and it´s a shame You can´t read it because I remember that I thought it was really interesting :-) :-) :-)





Well, the bread won´t be ready for yet a couple of hours so I´ll show You the result tomorrow. Even if I feel like going back to sleep again I think it´s probably better if I stay awake until the bread is ready. So I´ll make a poy of tea and then put a lot of more firelogs in ths tove. It´s not especially warm outside today and the cold sort of works its way through the walls and closed windows.

Have a great day now!

Lätt förvirrad och yrvaken så kan man inbilla sig mycket, tur du inte satt in brödet i ugnen och somnat ifrån den i alla fall. Du Krister visst var du på växtbytardagen hos Linda för två år sedan..? Tror minsann det och att jag fick med mig irisar från dig, kanske =). Jag visar den på bloggen så du kan ju kika om du känner igen den.. Önskar dig i alla fall en härlig helg.. och du vet väl att Linda ska ha växtbytardag i sommar igen.. Monica

Oh, there's no question it's your boyish charm with those lovely pictures as a backdrop! It's so restful to have my morning cuppa and slowly go through the pictures imagining the scents and sounds! Thank you, so much, for sharing.

Hate that I missed the 'dream sequence.' Let's try to be a little more alert from now on, eh?

Jo visst var jag hos Linda, men hade jag verkliugen irisar med mig?? Har svårt att tro det men jag skall ta en koll!

Jo, jag kommer allt att åka iväg till Linda i år igen :-)
Ha det gott!
Christer.

Hi Sharlene!
So it´s a combination then :-) :-) :-) A
I promise to remember what I dreamt of the next time :-) :-) I was just a bit slow this morning :-) :-)

At the moment the scent isn´t the nicest outside. It´s spring and manure spreading time here :-) :-)

Have a great day now!
Christer.

Hi Joyce!
I got very surprised at first since I never have eaten sweet scones before. It didn´t really work with the cheese I had by the time :-) :-) But then I used it as, what we call a coffee bread. Someting sweet to the coffee and for that it was perfect!


I can tell You that the Limpa (we call loafs of bread for limpa here too) is soo tasty! I bread totally in my taste :-)
Have a great day now!
Christer.
