  Rye, I said RYE...
It continues to rain.  It does it everyday now and trees are falling here and there as they lose their grip on mother earth.  Ah well the drought is gone for some long time with any luck.  Of course all the dams are full now so the rest of this stuff has no where to go except the Pacific Ocean nearby.  Runoff for melting snow will ensure continues flood warnings through spring anyhow.  

Today is Baking Day, every Sunday for the past 3 years I have been baking breads for my lovely and deserving neighbors.  I now serve 3 continually and 2 others intermittently.  My latest bread romance is Rye, whole rye flour.  I use a tablespoon of caraway seeds in each loaf, it enhances the flavor a bit and adds a nice crunch too.  Here's the recipe...designed for a bread machine in dough mode.

 Whole Rye Bread

2 teaspoons Active Dry Yeast
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Cups Unbleached Bread Flour
1 Cup Whole Rye Flour
1 Tablespoon fine Salt
3 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
12 oz 120 degree Water

Turn machine to Dough cycle and start.
Once complete, form into even 12" loaf,
Slash with sharp knife three times diagonally along the loaf.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375 Degrees.
Cool for 2 hours before slicing.

  We've had enough rain...
Yes we have, Lake Berryessa is now overflowing the Glorry Hole!  We have made up 43 feet since early October and 21 feet since the 20th of January!  Lake Berryessa is FULL!  The state is still under a Drought Watch...er...why I do not know.  Water is ponding up around Suisun, we are surrounded by H2O on all sides.

The Trump Disaster goes on, neverending I fear.  So very incompetent he is.  Batty, demented, incompetent!
All news us bad, it has affected my health, my blood pressure is now HIGH, something that has NEVER been a problem for me.  Now, it is.

I am a happy sort, an optomist forever, and love a good joke. I'm quite sociable and I LOVE Life. I'm loyal like a puppy and I'm quite happy by myself as I grew up an only child, but I like parties and formal dinners with friends. I am also a cook and would rather cook than eat.
