I have been mostly avoiding wheat and most grains in an effort to lose weight. After about two weeks of being wheat-free, I made this bread and had a couple slices, slathered in Kerrygold butter - yum, yum, yum! Soaking the wheat supposedly makes the wheat easier to digest and the nutrients more readily absorbed... but I don't think it makes the bread cause less weight gain, ha!
Ahh, the joys of a large family... and to think that my parents, all my brothers, and I used to share a basic two-bed hotel room when traveling.
I have never seen stitches being put in before, and it was actually very interesting. Knowing that her lip was numb made it easy for me to watch a needle going through her lip. I didn't even know that a lip could be stitched before this!
All's well that ends well, though. It happened on Sunday, and she appears to be healing up decently. Amazingly, she slept well the next two nights at the hotel, and she never once said that her lip hurt! The few times I asked her, she said, "No, it all better!" Tough stuff, that one!
