Baking Bread

Last night we had our new friends over for Trick-or-Treating. I decided to do a simple soup and sandwich dinner to make things move along quickly in between the fun. I had planned on making this bread to go along with the soup and later decided to use it as a main part of the meal rather than just an addition. It was just too good not to. This white bread makes terrific sandwich bread. It is so easy and basic, yet tender, moist, and delicious.
