Hello my dears..
How are you all doing?
We woke up to more snow this morning..
It is not that we mind it you know ..
It is just when you think it is all over then it starts all over again..
All good things come to him that waits..
(Or so I heard) smile..
What did you do today?
I made this no knead molasses porridge bread..
Someone left a comment and asked if I ever make brown bread..
This is as close as it gets..
I will post the recipe at the end of this post.. OK?`
Terry loves brown bread but I don't like it at all..
Even homemade although he says this is good..
I made another coffee cozy..
My grandsons laugh because I tell them I can only crochet in circles..
Canadians love their Tim Horton's and this is an extra large.. smile..
Thinking of planting something in this lovely toile tin I found at the thrift store..
Or.. perhaps I should save it for the shop.. smile..
Look at my sprouts..
The bottle is over a litre and it is full today..
Do any of you do sprouts?
A lovely homemade bread and sprout sandwich coming up..
This is a gift from my Mom and Step-Father...
An antique tea pot and a new iron..
And this is something I make when we have stale bread..
Bread Pudding with Raisins..
Do you make this recipe?
Oh this is a Canadian view point..
It is so funny because it is almost true.. grin..
And my thoughts are turning more and more to this place..
The wonderful Bay of Fundy and our old cottage and shop ...
I need to start making stuff..
Next week for sure..
I have the list but have not made the gigantic stride to accomplish anything yet..
I think I need to go down and look around and get over my procrastination..
Start on a panic and get some results..
Sad but true..
That is when I work best..
And you thought you knew me.. grin..
OK, dear hearts here is the recipe..
No Knead Molasses Porridge Bread..
Pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 cup of oats..
Stir and add..
1/2 cup of wheat germ
1/2 cup of molasses
1/4 cup of shortening
3/4 T. of salt..
Stir well and cool to lukewarm
In another small bowl add 1/2 cup of lukewarm water and 1/2 tsp. of sugar .. Sprinkle over 1 T. instant yeast.
Let stand about 10 minutes then add to the oats mixture..
Stir in 3 3/4 cups of flour.
*all purpose flour or half can be whole wheat
Then add 3/4 cup of lukewarm water..
Stir well and cover..
Let rise until doubled ..
Spoon into a greased loaf pan (large one) and let rise until it comes to the top of the pan..
Bake in 375 Degrees F. oven for 35 minutes or until done..
Take out and cool on a rack..
Oh.. this recipe can be doubled and you get 3 medium loaves.
Well, I guess that is all for tonight..
Thank you so much for your kind anniversary wishes and for your prayers ..
I still miss Sammi ...
That is to be expected, I guess..
Thank you for visiting and I always always look forward to your sweet comments...
Enjoyed talking to an old friend today who is so faithful reading but does not comment.. She just calls and tells me..
I appreciate all of you..
For reading and for commenting...
Love and Prayers..
