Somehow today I ended up with only one kiddo..The big one went with his Daddy to go and pick up a remote control car. Both son and fathers dream! Since I met my husband 6 years ago he has talked about getting a REAL remote control car and to be able to share this moment with his son, amazing.
Of course sweet River fell asleep after nursing and took a very nice nap while I baked some bread. Their is something meditative about baking bread. The whirl of the mixer must have something to do with it. It always slows me down and makes me soo happy. The house smells amazing right now.
Here is the recipe:

2 cups white sugar
