Happy Monday!


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.

  1. The bread and cinnamon buns look delicious. I want to be the person cutting your hair. I’m sure I could figure out some kind of hair-do. 🙂 The beef roast recipe sounds great. I like to cook our bacon in the oven, but Quentin is the breakfast cooker so it usually gets fried. We bought bacon on sale this week. I should try cooking and freezing it.

    I hope you have a wonderful day!


  2. Good Lord, there are people in America that throw away bacon grease? That has to be a serious crime against humanity! I wonder how they make fried potatoes?


  3. I need to do bacon that way as well. That would be so helpful and probably crispy which is the way I like it! I laughed at the bacon grease! I so agree.

    Your bread turned out beautifully! I am so envious. I need to keep at it, I guess. 😉

    I hope you enjoy the roast!


  4. Your bread and rolls look so good. I might just have to make some cinnamon rolls this morning for our breakfast.

    I have to admit that I do not save bacon grease. I didn’t grow up doing it, so I never thought of saving it. I guess I do save it, but it goes into my soap making grease.

    Have a wonderful day with your family. We have some light snow falling this morning, but I doubt it will last long.



  5. Oh yum! Where is mine? I suppose I will have to make my own, but yours looks so tasty even a week later. big smile Thank you for shraing your new experience with all of us. Have a great day and thanks for making time to stop by my online journal about the song. smile Have a great day and a wonderful weekend! Sincerely, Mommy of two growing blessings & so much more!
