The Hobby Horse and The best thing since sliced bread…

The longer I live out here, The more in love with it I become. Those of you gasping… It is really me writing this. I am really loving this place. Not just my home but this place in my life, where for once, I don’t have to work 12 hours a day. I can just be the me I want to be. Discover. Dream. Create. 
Thank you beautiful cowboy and Jesus….
That is what this pre-spring month is all about Creativity.

HOBBY HORSES – Crafting

     The First thing I want to share with you is this little craft I have been working on. It started out as a gift for my granddaughter M.

BEST BREAD EVER!   Creativity in the Kitchen

 

february blog 004 february blog 005

   I have taken to making my own bread. I know, maybe I am taking this country girl thing to far but I stumbled on a recipe that is amazing. If you are picturing me kneading bread with flour on my face, Sorry to disappoint. My Beautiful cowboy bought me home a bread maker. I do bake this bread in my oven but I used the bread maker for the mixin’. You can’t expect me to give up all my earlier ways. Any Hoo…. here it is, best bread recipe ever!  The thing I love most about it is that you can do anything with it. cinnamon rolls, herbal breads, add fruit, throw some wheat flour in there. It’s just good stuff.

Put this in the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer:

1 cup warm water

2 tablespoons sugar

1 egg

3 cups flour

3 tablespoons instant powdered milk

1 teaspoon salt

5 tablespoons vegetable shortening

2 tablespoons butter softened

1 teaspoon yeast.

Use dough setting.

When dough is complete, split in two and put into two well-greased loaf pans, allow to rise to double about 1 hour. Bake on 350- 20 to 25 minutes.

   Well that does it for now. I am still working on some other things I will share with you when I am done.   Some tag art, gifts for my guest bloggers, my ever growing thoughts on the hilarity of menopause you know the usual.

Til’ next time  lovelies
