So... I made some more bread. I know, I know. Same old crap. It's hard to be creative and new in this condition, but at least I'm posting! No typing help today so it'll be short and sweet. I'm cheating and took the sling off just to type a tiny bit for you. BAD GIRL! I'm just a wild rebel like that.
We had tacos for dinner last night. YUM.
And then a piece of home-made Cinnamon Raisin Toast for dessert.
So freakin' good!
I made the dough in the bread machine and waited until it beeped indicating it was time to add the raisins. I took the dough out, added the raisins and mixed them in with my hand (notice the singular. ha.), plopped it into a sprayed loaf pan, and then I let it rise for an hour or two. It got really high! Then I baked it at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.
A high percentage of the reviews I read on the recipe I found said that it was not sweet enough and didn't have enough cinnamon, so I added more of those ingredients in the below recipe.
Here are the ingredients as I made it:
Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Makes one large loaf (9" x 5" loaf pan)
1/ 1/4 cups warm water
2 pkgs (.25-oz each) active dry yeast
2 Tbsp butter, softened
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp cinnamon
3/4 cups raisins
I activated the yeast in the warm water with a little sugar before adding it to the other ingredients in my machine.
It'll be football, football, and more football here today. Eagles' game first (Cowboys' fans want them to lose)
And then the Cowboys and the Packers. I hope the Cowboys win, but if they don't, I'm a Packers fan too so it'll be okay. (The Captain is from Wisconsin. Yes, I married a damn Yankee! In fact, I married three of them! Shhhhhh! Who said that? That's crazy! That would mean I've been married...shut up Pammy Sue! I gotta go.)
And that is an example of the difference between me typing my blog entries and The Captain typing them. I can't start to ramble and get myself in trouble when he types it. PLUS, my arm is now killing me and it took an hour. The sacrifices I make because I love you!
P.S. I'll be changing the background on my blog. I couldn't find anything that looked right with my cute little snowmen. Aren't they darling? I
stole found the picture on Flickr somewhere. I forgot to write down where I got it. Bad, bad, bad. If you come across this blog and the picture is yours, please don't sue me or hate me. It's a compliment really, right? Right. AND, I'm not responsible for what I do on pain meds, right? Right. I FORGOT TO WRITE IT DOWN! That's all.
