Hello Dear Friends,

I LOVE sour dough bread. And with it being a fermented bread there are some wonderful health benefits as well! 🙂

I love when in Boston to eat the yummy Chowda’ in these yummy bread bowls!!

With the weather changing…hmmm, maybe a special treat of chowda’ in these bread bowls? 🙂

Have a wonderful day in the Lord,
