Combine first three ingredients in mixer and give a quick mix (5 seconds).
5 cups hot water (Water temperature needs to be 120 -130 degrees and not any hotter.)
Add water all at once in mixer with dry mixture and mix for 1 minute. Cover mixer with lid or cloth and let sit for 15 minutes. Dough mixture will rise. (I let my dough rise in the Bosch until it is 2 inches just below the top and sometimes it takes a little bit longer than 15 minutes.)
After dough has risen, add the following:
2/3 cup canola oil
2/3 cup honey OR 1 cup sugar
2 tablespoons salt
2 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
Mix for 1 minute and then add 5 cups whole wheat flour, 1 cup at a time. Mix well. (I usually mix about 10 minutes after all the flour has been added.)
Turn oven on 350 degrees for 1 minute and then turn off.
Take dough out of mixer. Divide evenly into six loaves and shape nicely in order to place each loaf in a medium loaf pan. (Use a good quality loaf pan.) Spray loaf pans so they don’t stick. When dough is put into bread pans, squish the dough softly into the corners of your bread loaf pans. This will make your bread bake evenly and not have the large lump in the middle of your loaf.
Place loaf pans in oven until they have risen to top of pan. Without taking loaf pans out of the oven, turn oven on at 350 degrees. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or at your discretion.
Remove from bread pans and let cool down before placing in a plastic bag. This bread freezes very nice and when thawed it still tastes fresh!
*This recipe is made in a Bosch which has a six quart size bowl. If your mixer’s bowl is not this big, try halving the recipe.
**You can also let the bread rise out of the oven and when ready, put into the oven that has been pre- heated to 350 degrees, and bake for 35 minutes.
Expectations and assumptions are a critical topic in every relationship. Understanding and dealing with our assumptions and expectations is your best tool in growing and strengthening your relationship. Does the husband make every decision? Does the wife manage the finances? Does the husband control activities and the wife sacrifice things she loves? Who drives the car when both are together? How are chores divided? We inherit many of our assumptions from our upbringing as a child. Our values and beliefs are formed during these early years. We grow up knowing what to assume and what to expect from our family. It can become so ingrained, that it is our way of thinking. We presume that others see things our way, and we expect them to have similar assumptions. This can be a real stumbling block to a successful relationship because we regularly find ourselves at odds with many of our partner’s words or actions. The best way to make progress is to take the time to understand where the assumptions came from.
Baked Apple Oatmeal
3 cups rolled oats (quick or old-fashioned)
2 cups chopped apples (can use frozen apples, if decrease milk)
Prepare a 2-quart baking dish with a light coating of cooking spray.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, combine the oats, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
In a separate bowl, mix together milk, egg, applesauce, oil, apples, and brown sugar.
Stir the liquid ingredients into the dry and pour into prepared dish.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Spoon into serving bowls and serve with milk and a little extra brown sugar. You can replace the apples with equal an equal amount of blueberries or other fruit. I make a batch of it at the beginning of the week and warm some in the microwave each morning for breakfast.
