Oh yummmm!!

Just took this out of the oven!! Took a picture but didn't upload it yet!

Whole Wheat Bread
1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
3 cups warm water (110° to 115°), divided
3/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup Domino® or C&H® Granulated Pure Cane Sugar
1/4 cup molasses
1 tablespoon salt
5 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups whole wheat flour

In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in 3/4 cup warm water. Add the oil, sugar, molasses, salt and remaining water. Combine flours; add 3 cups flour to mixture. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a firm dough.
Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape each portion into a loaf. Place in two greased 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pans. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices).

Busy, Busy, Busy!!

I've been working on putting up stuff for the online yard sale. We had our meet up last night. I had 3 no shows :( Heard from 1, but in my opinion it's wrong.

I got the Sunbonnet Sue quilt off the frame, I think the machine didn't like all the polyester fabric in it?? I'm so ready to be done with it!! Just needs binding.

Than I took these floating star blocks I got in a swap & sewed them together.
Thanks Louise & Donna!!
I'm going to put a 1 1/2 white border on than going to use FQ's & make the outside boarder colorful & cut them at a 45 degree angle's.

I got both bathrooms cleaned, kitchen floor swept & mopped. Went food shopping. Made a cabbage casserole in the rice cooker, steamed some cabbage in it plus made rice. Than put a greek chicken recipe in the roaster smell yummy! Plus burned the crap out of my hand from the thumb knuckle to the wrist! ughhh nice steam burn! OUCH!!!

Plus my cruise control is not behaving so I'm going to take it back tomorrow!! The wires are just too fine!
Yup I decided not to take the totes downtown the make up was tooo much. I joined Etsy it's a site to sell handmade things. Kinda like Ebay but you don't bid on the stuff. You buy for the price you put on it! Plus their rate is way cheaper than Ebay! I have to take a few more pictures before I put them up, but it's all set-up to do it!
