Five Things Today


5 Things Today

• Cranking my music to help get my mind going (creative juices flowing).

• Doing a load of laundry and dishes while I'm working. (I love it when I can multi task my work projects and home needs. I feel like I'm actually getting things done!)

• Drawing sketches of baby animals, in a caricature / cartoon style (for the project bid I won).

• Happy. My best good friend, (J's cousin) just called a little while ago.

• Getting ready to bake some homemade bread. The first attempt. Hopefully not the last.


ETA:

The bread tastes great, but after following the directions that told me to - "let it proof once for 1 hour after kneading, and then another hour in the loaf pan" - it fell.


Bummer.
I'll try again with a different recipe and set of instructions.

I have to crank the music, too!

I found a really good recipe on www.allrecipes.com called "Amish White Bread". I mixed it in my Kitchenaid mixer, which made it super easy! It is one of their top 20 rated recipes, so I thought it couldn't be bad! I think I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup, based on other people's reviews. Good luck with your recipe, too!
