Thank you everyone for your comments.
I'm implementing the list making for sure.
And I wish we had a container store here.
And I'm throwing things out.
Thank you for playing.

Katy, your family is beautiful and so is your blog! Here is my fave bread recipe (I know it by heart)ReplyDelete
Put a tablespoon of active dry yeast in 1/4 cup warm water with a pinch of sugar. Let it get all foamy while you do this other stuff.
Warm 1 1/3 cup milk. Melt 3 tablespoons butter. Mix these together with 3 tablespoons of honey, one tablespoon of salt, one cup of flour (I usually use a blend of whole wheat and unbleached white) and 1/2 cup water. Beat till creamy. Add yeast mixture. Mix.
You're going to add about 5 to 5 1/2 more cups of flour. I never sift it. I add about 1/2 cup at a time till I get a shaggy dough that just clears the sides of the bowl. Dump it out, knead it up, let it rise in an oiled bowl till doubled. Divide in half, form into 2 loaf pans. Let rise again until pans fill (about another 40 min, but it is faster if your kitchen is warm). You can do the slash-thing atop the loaves, but I don't. 350 for about 40-45 minutes until those babies sound hollow when you knock.
Best sandwich bread ever. Longest comment ever.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
