Bread and Veggies



So I was reading on http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/familybread.htm about making bread. Great site by the way, lots of good money saving ideas, thanks sis!

So I got to thinkin, hey, we have a bread machine...somewhere...So George and I braved the 'crawlspace/storage' area to find it. After many, many, many cobwebs, we found it in a box in the middle of the pile of stuff, of course. To make it more fun, there is no manual. So the google seach began, and I was able to find the website for the brand/maker and they provide a pdf copy of the manual (for all the different models) and a supplemental booklet/pdf of recipes, Yay!

So I made oatmeal bread yesterday. It was very yummy. I think there is a little left, but not much. Today I'm making 'Old Fashioned White Bread' we'll see....I don't think I would be making bread if I had to do it all by hand, but it's fun to dump everything in the machine and press start, and wahla! Bread!

The garden is really producing now. We've had some funky weather here this summer, not the best for growing veggies. But now the sun is out and the temp has been really nice, and the plants are happy. It's still strange that the tomatoes are mostly green and it's September, we are really hoping the weather holds long enough for most of them to turn color, or what a waste that will be! I think Mom counted the plants and we have about 85, and 13 different varieties.

This is an example of what is in a 'share' box, this is actually a half share, need a reminder about the veggie share stuff? Look at Creative Outlet Nursery and Farms


Here's some boxes of stuff waiting to go to the farmers market tomorrow


It's a little hard to see, but the honeybees like to drink from our fountain, cute huh?

Isn't he cute? :)


Oh and we bought my car back today.... $1343

Okay I'm torn. I don't know if I want a vacuum or a bread machine more for my birthday, hehe.

Bread machines are defenitely a nice thing to have - the veggies are BEAUTIFUL - and the boy is super cute!! And it's nice to that even though the car was delivered later than they said - it was still on "price time" -
