"The wife is like the fire, or to put things in their proper proportion, the fire is like the wife.
Like the fire, the woman is expected to cook: not to excel in cooking, but to cook,

.... be a cook, but not a competitive cook,

a school mistress, but not a competitive schoolmistress; a house-decorator but not a competitive house-decorator, etc...
She should have not one trade but twenty hobbies; she... may develop all her second bests.

Women were not kept at home in order to keep them narrow;
on the contrary, they were kept at home in order to keep them broad.

Soaked Wheat Bread

My friend Jenny sent me a link a while back to The Elliott Homestead blog.
If you're heading toward the whole foods way of eating to any extent you should check out her site.  It's an inspiration. One step at a time though!

I found her soaked wheat bread recipe and I've been making two loaves twice a week for the past month or so. I used freshly milled flour, with a a ratio of two parts hard red wheat to one part hard white wheat. This is our favorite bread right now.

You can find the recipe here.
