In case anybody missed it, my last blog wasn't actually a story about bread. In fact, it had nothing to do with bread.
Somebody said to me once, "Wow - I never realized you could make bread at home .... I just thought you had to buy it, and it was made by some mysterious, complicated method!"
It occurred to me in that moment that that is exactly what school is like. Any more these days, nobody thinks you can school a kid at home - because all they've seen is store-bought kids. Go back and read the blog again.
And, just in case your mouth got all lathered up thinking about homemade bread, I'll put a little bread-topping recipe at the end of this blog for your enjoyment.
Cheers to homeschool on the "rise" ...

Any quantity or variation of mixtures on the following ingredients. After the bread rises in the loaf pans, and before you put it in the oven, brush with water or a mixture of egg white and water (well beaten until homogeneous). Then sprinkle or slather on toppings to your heart's content.
sesame seeds - white or black, poppy seeds, sunflower seeds, dried fennel seeds, caraway seeds, garlic flakes, coarse sea salt, black pepper, dried shredded parsley, and anything else you have hanging around. If anybody else has any more topping ideas - please share! I love topping bread!
