It’s my last full day of LID. Yay! I’m so happy about getting off this diet that I’m not even worrying about my whole body scan tomorrow morning. I have more important things on my mind. Like, where am I going to eat lunch after my scan?
I think the last 4 or 5 days of LID are the hardest. You are tired and probably not feeling that great after the Thyrogen shots (even worse if you’ve been off your meds for 6 weeks). And then there is the RAI. It’s stressful. The extra thought and work the diet takes is just another thing. I don’t need another thing. I’m done.
This bread is great because it is delicious and really easy. I’m happy with the way it turned out. It’s great for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches (which is what I had for dinner tonight). This recipe doesn’t make a very big loaf. I haven’t tried doubling the recipe, but I don’t see why you couldn’t.
Easy White Bread
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cups flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons yeast
Put the ingredients into a bread machine in the order given. The yeast should be the last ingredient going into the bread machine. Set the machine to the dough setting and press start. Let the machine do the mixing and kneading for you. Once the machine is finished. turn the dough out into an oiled bowl. Let the dough rise for an hour.
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Punch the dough down and turn out on a floured surface. Shape the dough into a loaf. Place on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 35 or until golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing.
If you do not have a bread machine, just mix the ingredients together by hand. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead by hand for 10 minutes, adding more flour as necessary. Place the kneaded dough into an oiled bowl and let rise 1 hour. Bake at 350°F. for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely before slicing.
