Happy Anniversary!

Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated 14 years of marriage. It seems like yesterday that we met on Whitby Island. Now we have 4 children. Unfortunately, my husband had a big deadline yesterday for a project he was working on, so we were not able to go out to dinner. Plus it isn't that easy to go out with a newborn. By the time I prepare everything to go out I am exhausted.  Happy Anniversary darling!  I love you more with each day!  Changing topics, I have been looking for a bread recipe for years. I have tried many, but it seems like the bread is always dry the next day. Not this new recipe I found, it is fantastic! Simple too!

Honey Wheat Bread!
2 1/2 cups warm water
1 package of yeast
1 tablespoon sugar to feed yeast
combine these together in a bowl and after the yeast is activated add
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup honey
1 Tablespoon salt
5 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup white flour
1 1/2 cups of flour in addition to the first 6 cups. You can do this in a Kitchenaid, but I did it by hand. Knead dough for about 10 minutes or until it is smooth and elastic like. Then place in two greased bread pans to rise in a warm oven for one hour. Then bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.    Seriously, it is that simple.  If you manage to have any bread the next day, it will still be soft and just as tasty as it was when you took it out the oven.

happy anniversary to you both.
the bread looks very good. i make sourdough bread here which i think stays fresher for a longer time than baking with yeast.
