As I mentioned yesterday, I wanted to share with you a few projects I made when I was a part of the “Thrifty Under 50” challenge at YCMT. Here was my blog post from December 23. Yes, just 2 days before Christmas, and as you can tell from this post, time was of the essence!
You know when you have the greatest of intentions and you just can’t pull it off? Well, I have a wonderful sourdough recipe that I planned on making for some of Mike’s co-workers and then wrapping the loaves up in these embroidered flour sack cloths. Well, when push came to shove, I just couldn’t do it. So off to the local bakery I went! And you know, it’s OK! Sometimes we have to just let go of the perfectionism that I’m sure we all face at one time or another, and know that letting go is PERFECTLY OK. It’s a lesson I’ve had to learn time and time again. And guess what? I got down to the bakery and would you believe that all their sourdough was half off yesterday? Now that is called good luck. 🙂
So here are 4 loaves with the ever-so-cute gingerbread square from Homeberries at SWAK, and one loaf with another favorite- “Rejoice” by Needle in a Haystack.
