Baking Bread

My mom loves to make homemade bread.  One day last week she made bread with Rachel.  Judging from the pictures it was quite an adventure!  Let's just say that Rae is a very enthusiastic baker.
Rachel chanted "Knead! Knead!" and rammed her little hand into the dough.

Oooh!  It's a LOT of dough!

Now it's time to let it rise.  Mom always uses a huge enamel bowl to raise the bread.  It belonged to her great-grandmother and she has long joked that it is The Inheritance.  I love the idea that Rachel was using something that was her great-great-great-grandmother's!

While the bread baked, Rachel and Granny had a major wash-up, changed clothes, and cleaned up half a pound of flour off the kitchen counters and floor.  It's a good thing Rachel likes to clean as much as she does bake.
