So what do I do? These are real challenges that need real solutions. But it doesn't take long for God, in His kindness, to remind me of what has become one of my favorite passages in all Scripture. 2 Chronicles 20 is a record of King Jehoshaphat’s prayer when faced with an approaching army bent on destruction; the whole thing is amazing, but it's verse 12 that really gets me:
For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on you.

It takes maybe 5-10 minutes to set up the starter batch, which makes enough for four 1 lb loaves, and then it truly is a matter of shaping the loaves and whipping them into the over whenever the fancy for fresh bread strikes you.
Check out their website for events, ideas, and inspiration. I gotta say, though - I'm not too sure about the Valentine's Day bread. Kinda looks like someones innards...

I definitely see more pairs in our future. Not only do I have plenty of scrap to work with, but they fit my need to occasionally have a project that is straightforward and quick, which makes me feel so accomplished.
One note, though - the sizes run a little big. Dan's in a 12months size, which is normal for him, and I had to roll the pant legs twice. Ellie actually fit into them without the rolled up legs. I think this is a good thing, though - they've a better chance of fitting a little longer!
