It may look silly, but it works

I made bread today. I've been having a little trouble on the bread making front because our counter top is too high. In order to knead the dough, I've got to stand on my tip toes to give me a little extra height. Then today, the lightbulb went on. I went out to our van and got Auntie Lily's stool. Auntie Lily is a beautiful little old lady who lives at the nursing home. On Sunday mornings, our family picks her up and takes her to church with us. Since she had problems getting in and out of our van, we bought a collapsable stool and keep it shoved under the seat. Well, Auntie Lily's stool is the perfect height to give me the leverage I need to pound my bread into shape. Necessity is the mother of invention and all that good stuff.

Just in case you were wondering, I didn't put any green stuff in this batch of bread, it looks MUCH better than last week's bread.

Good thinking! And I didn't think your bread from last week looked bad. It just reminded me of zucchini bread or something along those lines!
