Homemade Bread for a Year

I made a goal last September to not buy bread from the store for a whole year. I posted a while back about Jody and I doing a little bread lesson/experimentation. I've been perfecting my bread making skills ever since. Now that its almost September, I can proudly say that it's now been a YEAR since I've bought a loaf of bread from the store. I have to confess that once the Farmers Market started in July I did buy a few loaves from our favorite "bread lady" Tess, more as a treat though. Charlie was in charge of grinding the wheat and we were spoiled all year with fresh whole wheat and honey bread. The good news is that the pressure is off but I am doubting that we will be going back to the store bought kind anytime soon. Once you go fresh, there's no turning back.

I am so glad you posted this. My goal this week is to get 25-35 grams of fiber a day so I've been looking for a good whole wheat bread recipe. Would you mind emailing me yours? And a whole year of bread making is super impressive.
