Good morning villagers..hope everyone had a great weekend. It's going to be gorgeous here today. I'm getting ready for a 12 hour work day. What is everyone else doing today? Have a good day.
We're under a heat advisory, so I got up in the wee hours and made 3 loaves of 100% whole wheat bread and 12 Cheese Burger Buns (King Arthur Flour -http://www.kingarthurflour.com/recipes/cheese-burger-buns-recipe), which I altered with some freshly-milled rye flour, chia seed "goop", flaxmeal, and multi-grain cereal for some "crunch" and additional fiber.... I can't ever leave a perfectly good recipe alone (LOL).
I had everything done and the kitchen cleaned up before 7:00 a.m. WHEW! That also included making breakfast, making hubby's lunch, giving him a kiss, and sending him off to work at 6:45.
I have 100-pounds of wheat to bag up and put in storage. I'll vacuum the house AFTER I get grain all over the kitchen floor.
I need to check what's going on in the garden. I know there's a few zucchini I'm going to harvest. I'm WILLING one tomato to ripen by the 4th of July. My sister and I always had a race to see who got the first ripe tomato, but now that she's moved to the tip of Texas, all bets are off because she had tomatoes long ago.
I also got a letter written to our son-in-law while waiting for the bread to rise. He's stationed in Afghanistan.
