it all started with a toaster

so last week, my dad got this sexy new toaster. we've been in the market for one for a while. while we love our cuisinart toaster oven, it takes FOREVER to toast a couple of slices of bread and we were both getting a bit fed up with it.
so obviously, we ordered the same toaster, but ours in black. it arrived a couple of days later (with a discount and free shipping - thank you,!)

the next obvious step was to bake some bread to toast in it. i turned to our standby loaf - one i make at least once a week (usually twice). but then the question was what to put on the inaugural toast? well, what better than butter made from moocream? lucky for me, my order from turner farm arrived yesterday and coincided nicely with the arrival of the toaster and the exit of the freshly baked bread from the oven...raw goat milk, moocream butter and goat cheese, oh my!

by this time, i was on a roll, and finn was at daycare, so i decided to try my hand at a few more baked goodies. i turned to one of my very favorite on line food resources, smitten kitchen, where i found recipes for tortillas, spelt crackers, and pretzels, all of which got whipped up (or at least set to rise) in just over an hour.

so this morning, when i woke up, i had the happy decision of whether to have homemade granola with raw goat milk or freshly baked bread with homemade butter and scrambled local eggs with goat cheese (i went with the latter).
needless to say, i feel very well-nourished this morning.
