Okay headache gone and appointment kept, still not 100% but at least not throbbing when I cough:)
I was busy yesterday, sewing, working on books, and cooking. I have posted in the past about my new mixer and I thought I would show it to you. Making 4, 2 lb loaves of WW bread is so easy now. I love dense ww and nutty breads, but they are $5.49 a loaf and it is a small loaf. This will save us so much money. Why do you go to the store? For me it is bread and milk, and we don't drink much milk.
|Put raw hard red wheat into grinder.|
|Out comes the WW flour, which I fine and course grind 1/2 and 1/2|
|My new Bosch mixer, throw everything in and start mixing keep steady for 8 minutes.|
|While bread is mixing, add carrots, onion and de-boned chicken and celery to homemade chicken stock. This pile of peels will go to our real chicken!|
|Waiting to be x-ferred to Judy!|
in rapture, she is such a kind judge.
While I was raising and baking I was also down stairs sewing and doing the bills. I paid almost every thing due except little bill's under $100.00 that can be picked off as money comes in. So now I must be very careful and I am broke so to speak.
I did pay off the Overdraft protection $1000.00 so another bill bites the dust. This is now how I will have $100.00 extra in my budget for something else. My real goal this month is to be very careful now so I can get a large payment onto the studio CC by Jan 1st. Anything left in the studio account by the 1st will go on that card. I really wanted to pay off the Studio loc which will be under $4000.00 soon and free up another $150.00 a month, but the Studio credit card is so high and scary. I just have not decided. Can I let it go one more month like this? We will see. Decisions, decisions, all based on fear and frustration.
Hub's and I had to go to the grocery store last night can you believe that after our expensive trip to Winco? I was out of garlic, now who runs out of garlic? I don't think I ever have as hub's accuses me of putting it on ice cream. But alas Judy ate the last clove.
I picked up diet coke, bread crumbs, lots of garlic( keeps away the vampires) and cheap burger and sausage. $29.46, and no more grocery stores for a while. I swear!
Out My Window: Beautiful sunny, dry about 50 degrees. I love the weather but we really need rain and snow or we will go into a severe drought.
I had better get to work, my kitchen is a disaster, I have an antique wedding dress soaking in the wash machine to get the stains out and the shop is calling.
Have a great and productive day!
