happy saturdays

ride your bike!
go kayaking.
go rollerblading!
sleep in and read a book.
have a picnic at the top of a mountain.
start a puzzle.
finish a puzzle.
eat some food,
bake some bread!

Bonnie's whole wheat bread

2 tbsp yeast
1/4 c. olive oil
1/3 c. sugar
1 tbsp salt
3 c. warm water
2 c. wheat flour
4 c. white flour

- mix first five ingredients and let sit until yeast gets all warm and happy
- stir in wheat flour
- then the white flour
- kneed for about ten minutes until dough gets nice and elastic
- let rise for one hour(covered), or until doubled
- place dough in two bread pans
- let rise for another thirty minutes
- cook in 350 oven for 45 minutes, or until golden brown

there is just nothing on this earth like a slice of bread fresh out of the oven. i swear your heart will melt along with the unnatural, but recommended amounts of butter you put on it.

autumn is near!
