Shortly after taking this picture, looking off to the southwest from the upper porch of our residence in Bedford, we had the hardest driving rainstorm we have yet experienced here in Virginia. It came down in sheets of water, blowing out of the south. It slackened off after awhile, but continued to rain throughout the evening, much to Linda's pleasure. This was on Wednesday.
We are continuing to make Amish Friendship bread and take starter and the recipe to members and families we teach. Now that we have it going, we aren't sure how to stop. We have 3 more ziplock bags of starter to share with someone out there. It sure does make good tasting bread, or rather cake. It has the consistency of pound cake and you can make any flavor you like. Our most recent is Lemon, and that sure is good!
