When I make bread I always “proof the yeast”.
I activate it in warm water with a bit of sugar and if it gets foamy I know the yeast is good.
Doing this prevents wasted ingredients, as well as wasted time and effort, resulting in bread that won’t rise.
This gratitude gathering is “good leavening”.
It began with Ann and is still “rising”.
Instead of confining my thanksgiving to my blog,
for the second year in a row, everyday in the month of November,
I , and now many of my friends,
are posting something we are thankful for as our daily Facebook status.
Might you consider joining us?
Let’s keep spreading the gratitude.
