Little Men

I've been baking lots and lots of sugar cookies the last couple of weeks. I prefer gingerbread, but the kids are addicted to these buttery little men, cut with my tiny gingerbread boy cookie cutter. They are difficult to decorate, but fun to eat.

Fresh bread

Originally uploaded by mickeynick.
I baked bread last weekend, for the first time in the new oven, and it was so well received you would have thought I had spun gold. Such a simple thing--flour, water, yeast, a little sugar--and yet so satisfying. We each had a buttered slice when it was warm from the over. Later, I served the rest of the loaf with soup for dinner.
