Live Real. Eat Real.

Not Wordless Wednesday and Sorta Spin Cycle

Cheese Bread

Sprite’s Keeper is going to BlogHer this weekend, and has given us all a vacation from The Spin Cycle this week.   This has thrown me in a tizzy – my bloggy OCD demands that I have a Spin Cycle on Wednesday, dammit!!  (And it’s pretty much a given I’m so not going to be able to abide by the rules of a Wordless Wednesday post.  Ahem.)  So I thought I’d give you an idea of one of the things I do on Sundays.

Basically, bake bread (which is why I’m upset about my oven slowly going on the fritz – sometimes it heats right up, and sometimes it takes fooooooorrrrrreeeeeevveeerrr).

Interwebs, say hello to last Sunday’s loaf of cheddar bread.

Except I won’t be baking bread this weekend, because Sunday I’ll be driving from Hocking Hills State Park to French Lick, Indiana <insert juvenile Beavis and Butthead impression here>.  You see, we’ve decided to forgo our once-every-other-year Christmas vacation (the only real time we can get off from work) for the incredibly exciting activity of remodeling our bathrooms.

I know – don’t we just live on the edge??

Anyhoo, so we decided I’d go with Beloved on his business trip to Indiana next week, and since we were going to be driving anyway, we’d take Friday of this week off and go rent a cabin down in Hocking Hills for a nice, long weekend.  This cabin is really a small home in a secluded, wooded area, with a hot tub and no cell phone reception.  Woo-hoo!

Hmmm.  Some people have taken Jen’s Spin Cycle “vacation” literally and posted anyway.

Well, me too.  Me too.

Have a lovely Wednesday, y’all.

Cheddar bread… Are you trying to kill me? Just drizzle it with chocolate and call my time of dietary death!
Love the way you Spin this.

If I remember correctly French Lick has a casino and a wine festival. And yes, we used to make several juvenile remarks about it. My favorite state park is in Kentucky; Big Bone Lick.

Love the sound of the cabin. In some ways eating freshly baked bread in a cabin is my ideal.

Have fun! It sounds wonderful! I’ll be nursing a hangover in Chicago.

Have a lovely little break. Very pleased to make that bread’s acquaintance. Do you put up recipes? 🙂

Mama Badger says:

Mmmm, bread. Now I want to make bread. Darn, why do you always do this to me???

Have fun in Hocking Hills! What a beautiful spot.

BTW, if you’re looking for an ice cream truck in suburban Ohio, good luck. From what I’ve learned, it’s really hard and expensive to get a permit, so people don’t bother…

Cheddar bread and a cabin in the woods?
Nice! Enjoy.

So I guess this means you’re NOT coming to see me in December? *pout*

And btw, you’re doing it wrong. YOu need to go to French Lick in the fall and then mozy up to Brown County. Beautiful.

I’ve got that laugh in my head. 🙂

I love baking, too. I just wish I could make more time for it. Your bread is gorgeous! You took the photo, right? It looks professional.

Oh YUM! That cheese bread looks delish!

What a great idea having a weekend away in a cabin in the woods…unplugged. I’ll look forward to reading all about it next week… 😉
