Forrest made Miss C an awesome doll cake!

Miss C playing with her presents!
Her new toy phone was the biggest hit out of all of it!

It is hard to believe my sweet babe is 2! Miss C is such a blessing to our family. She has the liveliest personality. She keep us on our toes all the time. Happy Birthday Caroline!!!! We love you!

Look at what I found.....

A few nights ago...Ella woke up and had a bad dream. So being the awesome mom that I am I told to go watch T.V. and she would be okay. So needless to say she must have had a good time watching late night T.V. ! We aren't sure how long she slept like this but she was happy in the morning.

This and That

On this Saturday July 3rd, I am teaching a class for Whole Wheat Bread....I am a little scared! I feel that a lot of people think of me as this thrifty, tidy, super homemaker. But I am not. I have my moments of greatness and also moments of defeat. I enjoy baking and trying new experiments when it comes to food. I sometimes feel so inadequate to be teaching these women about food storage and how to cook! But wish me luck on my venture of teaching.... Took a new photo of the kids today!!! What do you think....

EZ Wheat Bread Recipe

EZ Wheat Bread recipe

1 1/4 cup warm water
1 Tbsp active dry yeast
1/4 cup honey or 1/3 cup sugar
2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (or whatever combination white/wheat you like I use 100% hard white wheat)
1/4 cup wheat gluten
1 tsp salt
2 Tbsp nonfat non instant dry milk
1 Tbsp butter/margarine/oil
1 Tbsp vinegar1/4 cup potato flakes (NOT potato pearls)

Mix ingredients in order listed in mixing bowl of mixer with dough hook attachment (like kitchen-aid) for 12-15 minutes. Let rise until double, 1- 1 1/2 hours. Punch down, and shape into loaf or rolls. Let rise again until double and bake 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and sounds hollow when lightly tapped.If you are making this recipe in a bread machine, follow your bread machine’s directions for wheat or whole grain selection and add the ingredients in the order listed for their recommendations. (only one loaf will fit in a bread maker)
If using a Bosch cut the mix time down to 6 minutes!
