More May Day preparations

Our May Day feast featured this beautiful loaf of bread, shaped into a braided ring, and made into a cucumber and cream cheese sandwich.

















Here's how it came to be:

















This was a last minute idea, so we used our bread machine to help expedite matters. We mixed up a batch of dinner roll dough using white whole wheat flour and a recipe that came with our machine.























Then it was time to test out Toucie's skills!























She did her part perfectly. It was me who was challenged when it came time to join the ends to form the ring.


















See the messy bit there on the right? Sigh....







































Baked it, cooled it, sliced it, spread it with cream cheese, covered it with cucumbers and stacked it all up!























Easy, festive and just right!
