happy homemaker

I'm not sure what has come over me.

But my family is lovin' me for it cause I'm whipping up all
kinds of yummy goodies.

Monday I made four, yes four
loaves of wheat bread.

Ok, the first two loaves were brick-like.

But...

the next two were fantastical.

I blame my friend Lacy who has inspired me
to become an independent woman amazing homemaker.

I think I would have fit quite nicely in the 1950s.

Yesterday K-man went to Sam's to pick up some milk.

I had him get some flour and sugar too...

25 lbs of each...you know, to feed my new
bread-making/pie-baking habit
.
Don't you know that he was more than
happy to oblige.


Then......I made French bread.

Oh.My.Stars.

SOOOO easy to make and let me tell ya....

Dee-licious.

And because my Happy Homemaker hat was still
on, I thought...what, what the heck.

I'll make a cherry pie.

There will be cherry pie in heaven,
I'm sure of it.

So that was my day.

Don't believe the rumors that Lucy was in
her pajamas...
all.day.long.
while I was working away in the kitchen.


Now if you will excuse me,
I need to start my 3 5 hour trek on my treadmill.

Hezra said...

will you email me your french bread recipe ? I made whole wheat ones once and my little girl(who was Lucy's age at the time) said, MOMMY! I did not know you knew how to make bricks!!! (we were reading about ancient egypt and making bricks at the time, so of course I didn't tell her it was really supposed to be bread. lol I am so clever) ;-) Your pictures would make Martha St*wart jealous. Beautiful! I am off to hop on my mini trampoline while watching TV.

Tracy said...

Wow..Im impressed. Thats a beautiful pie, and the bread isn't lookin to shabby either. Are you sure you didn't invite Martha over for coffee??? hee,hee.
My invitation for coffee and pie must have gotten lost in the mail. Maybe next time.

Love homemade bread, my family is SPOILED, they are not sure the store bought stuff is edible.
Pie looks lovely
I'm sure Lucy didn't mind being in her pj's all day.

Karin said...

Sheesh...I'm not going to be able to be your friend anymore if you keep being so over-the-top homemakerish. How are the rest of us lugs supposed to live up to that!? :)))) hee

Wow you are the happy homemaker.
I love to cook to most of the time. It seems like it goes in spurts. I get in the mood for a few months and cook all the time. Then I get tired of it and take a few weeks off and we have hamburger helper for awhile. haha
That cherry pie looked delicious!
