It's Friday!!! I loved this week!!
As much as I loved the warm sunshiny beginning, I didn't mind the rain so much these past few days....especially while baking bread.
Honey Whole Wheat Bread
adapted from this recipe (yes, I alter my own recipes....just upped the wheat flour this time)
1 1/2 c warm water
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/3 c honey
2c all purpose flour
2 TBS butter, melted
1/2 TBS salt
2 1/4 c whole wheat flour
1/4c ground flax seed
Mix water, yeast, and honey. Let sit for 20 minutes.
Add to bread machine (Yes, I'm a cheater)
Add remaining ingredients.
Use "dough" setting.
Take out of bread machine and let rise once more.
brush with olive oil and sprinkle with oats.
Bake at 375° for 40 minutes.
We loved getting our hands dirty and planting some pots for inside (still a few more weeks until we can put our garden in, darn spring weather.)
I loved this kitchen/dining room (forgot about this photo from our SD trip) If it were my kitchen, I would love a few modern conveniences, (I suppose), but I LOVE the table, high ceilings, and the copper pots on the wall!
I love spending time with amazing friends. You know, the kind who stay up waaaaaay too late and get way too silly and give you private light shows and share inside joke. Those friends are the best.
Speaking of those good friends, please be sure to check out Cara's new blog. She's blogging about her adventures in only eating things that she makes from scratch (with a small grocery list of things she is "allowed" to buy at the store and farmers market.)
And one more blog that I am so happy I found, Bobbie Rounds the World, about circumnavigating the world by boat: 24,000 miles in 24 months. The very thought of it FREAKS me out, so I will just enjoy her photos and wish I were even a bit that cool. Check it out!
And....our song for the week has been THE most requested song by my kids this week. Why do I think it's so funny to hear them sing it?? These two are brilliant.
What did you love about this week?
