What I Ate Wednesday post...

For this WIAW post we will be concentrating on one particular recipe that I have become quite fond of:  Honey Whole Wheat Bread.  I found this recipe via summer harms.  She makes lots of yummy foods and always attempts to make them healthier.  This recipe is a bit crazy, though, in the fact that it uses three different types of flour:  all purpose, whole wheat and white whole wheat.  (I will risk sounding like a geek by mentioning that I have still a fourth type of flour in my cupboard:  bread flour.  There used to be a time when I thought that flour was flour.)  So anyway, I made this bread for the second time over the weekend and it tasted as good as I remembered.  I did exhibit some self-control and waited about 20 minutes before cutting into the bread in order to allow it to form a "crumb".  Mr. P and I enjoyed it with some butter (only the real deal for this bread) and then for some sandwiches. 
I've included some photos of the baking process.  Although they aren't as pretty as Summer's photos, I hope you enjoy the step by step pictures!

What I Ate Wednesday

Phew, I'm just getting this post in under the wire!  I figured I better throw up some pictures since I've been delinquent for a few weeks.  Will you forgive me if I don't link up the recipes at the moment?  How about this, send me a comment if you're interested in one of the items and then I'll do another post just with those recipes. 
(Yes, this is a secret ploy to get more comments...)

 America's Favorite Pork Chops (yes, they are called that, and no, they are not difficult to maket), green beans, Far East toasted almond rice pilaf

 Strawberry Rhubarb Muffins--made these with fresh rhubarb from a friend's garden!

 Fruit Salad with a special twist :)

Homemade grilled pizza--used Artisan Bread recipe, ham and pineapple.  Loving that combo!
