Sesame Tartine Bread

And miles to go before I sleep/ And miles to go before I sleep. The pentameter of Robert Frost is a lullaby to winter, the journey into a darkened wood that passes farmhouses and lamp posts without relent, a cadence, a rhythm that in itself charms you into the sense that all is well, and all will be well. I am tired of the cold, and yet, in the groove of survival. Bread baking is a part of that groove.

  1. The earliest favorite poem I can remember ever having, after one of my elementary school teachers introduced it to our class! How I loved, and still love those verses of Robert Frost. Keep on keeping on through this long stretch of mid-winter grayness and cold. Springtime is just around the corner!
