Necie! Is there a recipe posted for flavored amish bread? That sounds great!

I did a search and found this: http://mrssurvival.c...=1

My recipe is similar to CoM's. For my starter, I mix 1/3 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/3 cup milk with bread yeast. The batch I have now has been going for about 4 months. Where it says to add 1 cup of each again on day 5 and on day 10, I only add 1/2 cup of each. Then take out 1 cup starter to hold back for next batch before I start my recipe. Otherwise, if you add 1 cup of each, you gotta find 2 friends to pass the extra on to or make extra or whatever.

For the variation of flavors: I don't add the cinnamon and I don't *sugar* the pans. Instead of vanilla pudding, you can substitute other flavored puddings--lemon, pistachio, butterscotch, chocolate, etc. ....or... use vanilla pudding and instead of vanilla extract, substitute other flavored extracts--orange, cherry, strawberry, almond, black walnut, etc. I usually use 1 1/2 tsp flavoring extract, instead of the 1 tsp vanilla the recipe calls for. You can also add fruits (drain well), nuts, raisins, etc. Sometimes I do *banana* nut with banana creme pudding and walnuts, or oatmeal raisin. Usually if I use *real* fruit (blueberries, cherries, cranberries), I make the bread in muffin pans. (YUM!)

There are so many things you can do with this recipe and since you keep the starter back, you get to start over *fresh* and come up with something totally different anytime you want. :)

...there are some things that can beat smartness and foresight. Awkwardness and stupidity can. The best swordsman in the world doesn't need to fear the second best swordsman in the world; no, the person for him to be afraid of is some ignorant antagonist who has never had a sword in his hand before; he doesn't do the thing he ought to do, and so the expert isn't prepared for him.

It was kind of a strange day. We didn't really eat at "normal times". They had a late breakfast, I fixed brats around 2, and baked baby back ribs for supper. Boy, were THOSE good! :feedme: I love Sweet Baby Rays's BBQ sauce.

The ribs were a Super Bowl special... nearly half price. So I baked them till tender and then cut them into sections and baked them in the sauce.

And there are enough to have tonight, with some in the freezer for one of "those" nights. :thumbs:


(And yes, we had side dishes, but nothing special.) ;)

For Valentines Day, I made Hubby's favorite meal... meatloaf and scalloped potatoes. Added freshly cooked asparagus that I found on sale, and even lilDD said it was great. :)


*SIGH* I like making them happy. :wub:

Satueed chicken with tarragon some garlic and onion and adobo minus the pepper. It smells good and you just let it slow cook in the pan.
Green beans and fresh carrots.
Tater tots. LOL.


I forgot to get ice cream again......... lol. Have not had any in about 5 months....... what kind would be good for dessert if I had bought it?

I just have to share... my heart is full. :wub: LOL

I have Monday - Wednesday at home, then I take care of DGS (DearGrandSon) at their home on Thursday & Friday. So those two nights meals can be late and/or hectic.

Wednesday I found chicken breasts and beef cubed steaks on sale, so I baked the chicken with an herb coating and I fried and then baked the cubed steaks in a mushroom soup gravy. Two meals (actually more) with one oven use. With mashed potatoes, the cubed steaks and gravy are one of my family's favorites (also with more veggies on the side, but that's the base meal). And I now have meals ready to just heat up and add veggies and supper's ready both busy days.

So today I took some of the mashed potatoes, beef, and gravy for my meal and DGS's meal. I chopped his up into bite-sized pieces and let him go at it. Had fresh fruit as a side.

Halfway through, this little guy who is just learning to speak relatively clearly stops, looks up at me, and says with gusto... "Awesome!" :huh: :blink: :blush:

:24: :24: :24:


I think it was a hit!!! :D


(When I told his Mommy, my DD, she said, wistfully, "I think your cubed steak is awesome, too!" LOL )

I had a little whimsical fun for supper tonight. Lunch was a pretty good roast beef sandwich though, so I went lighter actually for my supper.
I actually found a not so fatty hot dog brand at the store and they are not as big as regular size, so they seemed right for a serving for me and not as salty as regular ones?
Plus the price was right.
Its a new brand in my store and I decided to try them.
I am glad I did.
I wrestled with the idea of buying hotdog buns but the whole wheat ones were 3 $ a package.
I had gotten some shredded cheese and I picked up some corn tortillas, which I have not tried to make on my own yet although I know I can make wheat flour tortillas ok...

so I made a couple corn tortilla wraps with a hotdog and cheese sprinkled on them in the microwave on paper towels ..... easy supper with a bowl of sliced strawberries for desert.
They taste pretty darn good too.

It got me in the mood to even try plain filtered water.........lol.

I am sooo behaving ...... I think I will have another glass! :bev:

Have also decided to go pick up a few more packs of those hot dogs when I go buy cat stuff tomorrow.... if its not pouring rain ......storm should pass tonight? Mebbe??

Soooo... what brand are these hot dogs??? :happy0203: They sound interesting!

A Mexican restaurant in this area makes (or used to, I don't know now) a child entree that was a tortilla-wrapped hot dog, deep fried. Never tried it, but it did seem popular with the kids.

Sugardale chicken hot dogs
