4 H Bread Workshop

In 2 weeks our local 4 H will be having a Bread/Cookie Contest.  Every year before the contest they have a workshop on bread or cookies.  Last year we missed the cookie workshop since I had just had Emelia a few days before.  Even though we make yeast breads quite a bit at home, the children wanted to go to the workshop and  I thought it would be fun for them.  They made bread in a bag which I have never done before.  Nick, Alex, and Anthony worked in a group together with Chelsea as their teen helper.  Lily, even though she is not even 3 yet, thinks she is in 4 H (she has gone to every meeting/workshop since she was born) and really wanted to help, so she "helped" the boys out.  They had a good time at the workshop although Anthony wasn't thrilled to put on an apron and Alex pouted because he didn't get to crack an egg.  They wanted to make pizza with their dough, so after supper completely on their own they made a pizza to eat for lunch today using 2 sections of dough.  The other loaf we baked as bread.  They also each got to bring home a yeast bread recipe book to help with ideas for what to make in the contest.
