Almond Butterscotch Friendship Bread

friendshipbread2My friendship bread starter made it to day 10, and it was ready to be transformed into two delicious loaves of bread.  I loyally stirred and added flour, sugar and milk every day I was supposed to.  I was pretty excited about it this evening.  It was a long day at school…I got there at 7:30 am and did not come home from school until 7:00 pm.  After I got home, Ben and I went to dinner with a friend of his who’s staying with us tonight to break up his car trip from Colorado to Waco.  We got home from dinner at 9.  The excitement of the bread had subsided a bit yielding to the excitement of sitting on the couch and not doing a thing.  I forced myself to go into the kitchen and just get it done.
