Hello everyone!  I hope you all are having a great day so far.  We have worked on half school today as we are going to get haircuts this afternoon.  I found this new recipe for bread and so I am taking this loaf to Mrs. Faye as a thank you for cutting our hair.  We also plan on sharing these cinnamon buns with her.

I got this recipe from http://redfarmhouse.blogspot.com/search?q=one+rise+bread.

I also wanted to share another new recipe I am trying.  I got it from here http://belovedsbride.blogspot.com/  I had a beef roast to put in the crockpot this morning.  Amazing how things work out that way.  It sure does smell good cooking.

Another new thing I did last month was bake our bacon in the oven.  Jess does this all the time so I thought I would give it a try.  We buy our bacon at Sam’s in a 3 lb package.  Last month, I baked the entire package at one time.  Instructions are here:  http://blog.makezine.com/craft/kitchen_101_cooking_bacon_in_t/    I then froze the precooked bacon.  Wow, I’m thinking, why hadn’t I thought of this before.  Now all I have to do is get out the amount of bacon needed for breakfast, heat it up in a skillet or microwave and ta-da bacon is ready.   I am impressed with how fast it is and how crispy the bacon is.    Of course, the instructions on the post said to throw away the bacon grease that accumulates in the pan.  I’m sure that ain’t right!  I would never throw away good bacon grease.  Mine is in a jar in the fridge and has already been used several times.  Once, for some refried beans I made the other day that was delicious.

Well, that’s about it.  I hope you all have a great day and God bless.
