The shorebirds, such as the sandpipers, have long since left their staging area
in Maine months ago and are no doubt enjoying a nice warm winter in South
America.  But, I've decided to run this story about these birds anyhow...only
because it gives me a nice warm feeling thinking of these sweet birds in a
tropical climate right now, knowing they will return in the summer.

takes nearly twenty four hours, I thought this bread might be something
special. That it requires no kneading and is cooked in a covered iron pot
intrigued me.
