|its a very sticky dough|

Its a heavy, grainy bread that tastes good fresh or toasted. You wouldn't like it if you just liked processed white breads. We find it is great for sandwiches and is fantastic with stews. We'll have it tonight with green beans and mushrooms sauteed and then tossed with lentils cooked with sage, paprika, garlic and onions. Simple but healthy. Lucky for me Carm loves these types of meals.

Today's word of the day is jubilate (JOO-buh-layt verb : rejoice). I can think of many reasons to jubilate - just being alive and healthy is one. I jubuilate in the returning of the sun (although you wouldn't know it from all the cloud cover we've had lately); I rejoice in the love of my husband, family and friends. I will really be rejoicing at the end of winter when we can hitch up the camper and head out somewhere! If we all look at our lives I'm sure everyone can find reasons to jubuilate. Its sometimes easy to find them when times are good, but its most important to remember them when times may be bad. Try not to forget about your reasons.
