Monday...

  • I can't believe October is almost over...I also CAN"T believe that Christmas is only 67 days away! Let me just say that I love fall, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE Christmas. Christmas time just makes my heart happy!

  • I usually don't care for Mondays...as I got up at 5:45 to get ready for work, I walked into the living room and this is what I found...
 
Our Precious little Basset Hound Bella fast asleep without a care in the world! She gets to spend her days while the hubs and I are at work just like this. Lucky.



Please don't judge me...well, actually it's okay if you do. I probably would too. 
Usually every morning when I am getting ready and there is not a thing in this world that will wake up Bella so early in the morning {especially on a Monday}...I wish we could trade lives. Just until Monday is over. Is that sad?


  • Well, the oh so fabulous  Ashley over at http://thekucerafamilyblog.blogspot.com/ just made my Monday so great! As I mentioned in one of last weeks posts, I won Ashley's give away of my FAVORITE Tyler Candles, and it was for the perfect fall scent Mulled Cider. The sent just warms my soul! THANK YOU so so much Ashley!

  • Now, I love getting things other than bills in the mail. This was the perfect gift to get in the mail...especially on a Monday. So, thank you again Ashley for making my Monday end on a great note!

  • I wish you all a great Monday evening!

Whew



This week was crazy busy at work! I am so glad it's the weekend. I am so excited that it is OCTOBER! I love: the weather (the high here today is 76 degrees!), fall decorations, candy corn, pumpkin pie, pumpkin scented candles, soap (I just went to Bath and Body Works the other day to stock up on their new fall scented soaps! I put the Gourmet Spice in the kitchen, and each bathroom has Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin!) 

One of my dear friends from college came to town on Wednesday and we got to eat dinner together! I decided to make lasagna with my dad's homemade sauce recipe (I didn't take any pics of that so I will post about it next time I make it!) Along with that, I made homemade bread!


Here is what you will need:



  • 1 1/2 packets active dry yeast
  • 1 T and 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. olive oil
  • 5 eggs
  • 1 T salt
  • 8 1/2 c. flour

  1. 1. In a large bowl, dissolve 1 T sugar and yeast in 1 3/4 c.  warm water (stir for a couple of minutes to make sure everything is dissolved. 
  2. Wisk in oil, then beat in 4 eggs one at a time. Then add in 1/2 c. of sugar and salt. Gradually add in flour 1/2 c. at a time.  Then knead the bread on the counter for a couple of minutes. 
  3. Grease another large bowl (or you can wash and use the same one from earlier) and return the bread.  cover with a towel and let rise for 2 hours. Then press it down to get all the air out and let it rise for another 45 minutes. 
  4. Divide the dough in half (at this point I freeze one of the halves for later) If you don't want to freeze it, then take one of the halves and divide into 3 balls. 
  5. Roll out the balls and braid together. Repeat with the other half. 
  6. Beat the last egg and brush over bread. Let the bread rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  7. Brush the bread one more time with the egg. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes. 

 Before it went into the oven:


AFTER!


**This is the first bread recipe I have ever made and we LOVE it! What are your favorite bread recipes (regular, pumpkin, banana, etc?)  Let me know if you try my recipe and if you like it!**


On a totally different note, I participated in the scarf swap that Meredith held! I LOVE scarves, and I LOVE LOVE the one that my partner Jo got me!



I LOVE the colors! I can't wait to wear it!!
When I was searching for Jo's I came across this exact one. I didn't think it was quite right for Jo, so I almost bought for myself. Then I remembered that I was not shopping for myself so I put it back and continued the search. I went home and began searching online. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one for Jo! I ran well, drove actually to the store just in time (it was the LAST one)!
Jo, I am so happy that you love your scarf! It was so much fun being your partner! Thank you so much for mine! I really really love it!
