Kim's Sandwich Bread

HI! Now we all know that yeast breads are in a league of their very own. It can be really intimidating, BUT, I assure you, this is a simple recipe with simple ingredients that you will be able to do. It may take a few will agree that it is worth it!

Last week Kim and her "little bird" joined me for lunch. Kim brought the bread, KETTLE chips and fizzy drink {my favorite!}. So, basically, I provided the peanut butter, jam and dishes! :} Anyhoo...the bread was PERFECT! Some homemade breads are great the first day and kinda dry and crumbly for sandwiches. Not this one...not by a LONG SHOT. It was a day old and just right for sandwiches. I am so happy I agreed to her bringing lunch. Thank You, Kim!

When is the last time you enjoyed lunch with a friend? I love it! Nothing fancy schmancy, but

P.S. I offered to make tacos, I don't think she realized I was offering my leftovers from the night before?

What do you serve to YOUR friends for lunch? Do you make sandwiches, order take out or serve leftovers? I really want to know!!! :)
