My New Crock Bowl

Recently I found a large vintage crock bowl at the thrift store for a whopping 12-dollars!
With fall weather in the air I decided to mix some bread dough, in my mixer, and then place the dough in the crock bowl to rise. I love how the dough looks so small sitting in the bottom of the bowl.

When the dough rose it didn't even reach halfway up the sides. I love how big this crock bowl is!

My bread and rolls turned out nice and will go perfect with the jelly I made early this morning. The bread sticks I made from this same batch of dough were devoured for lunch.

We ran out of jelly last week and Elizabeth asked when I was going to make more. (I just love how she knows it will be homemade instead of purchased from the store.) When I make jelly for us, and not to give as gifts, I don't bother to seal the jars; they go straight into the fridge when cooled.

The rolls and bread look wonderful! I love the crock also, it's hard to find large bowls that don't cost an arm and a leg. Enjoy the jelly, I bet it's oh so yummy.

That bowl is a wonderful find. The bread, rolls, and jelly look so good. (You do realize, don't you, that you are making me feel really lazy and oh so guilty. LOL)

Love the bowl.. the next time you're up this way remind me and I'll give you all those crock bowls that Ruth gave me.. their from back when they owned the dairy farm and she use to make her biscuits in the bigger one.. I don't ever use them because they are too big so you're welcome to them.. they still look new.
