A Royal Tea Party


Happy Friday. Who doesn’t love tea?

So, last Sunday it was my mom’s birthday and we held a tea party! We did some research.

What we did:

You need: 

A tea set, white table cloth, cookies, crackers, salami, cheese, sandwiches, candy, TEA :), and a bunch of other stuff.

And a birthday girl.

Quaker’s Vanishing Oatmeal Cookie Recipe


I found this recipe on the back of the Quaker Old Fashioned Oats box and found and printed the recipe online:
http://www.quakeroats.com/cooking-and-recipe/vanishing-oatmeal-raisin-cookies.aspx

I did a little adjusting time wise to fit our oven’s needs: I baked them for 14 minutes (!) instead of 8-10 minutes

Made 58 1 TBSP cookies for me!
I just did a quick copy and paste from the website so full credit to

Quaker Oats

Bread


***My mom found this recipe from The Frugal Girl.

2 1/3 cup warm water

1/4 c honey

4 tbsp butter (melted)

1 1/2 tbsp yeast

2 1/2 tsp salt

3 c whole wheat flour

2 3/4 c all purpose flour

DSC02896

Mix 1 c whole wheat flour, 1 c white flour, yeast, and salt in the mixer.

DSC02897 DSC02898 DSC02899 DSC02900 DSC02901

Add warm water, honey, and butter (melted).

DSC02904 DSC02903 DSC02901 DSC02905

Mix in remaining wheat flour, and add enough white flour so your bread is kneadable and non-sticky!!

DSC02907

Next, get your hands ready to be sore!! Knead this sucker for 5 minutes!

Sounds easier than it looks.

Put the dough back in your mixing bowl, cover with damp dishcloth, and set in a warm place for 45 min.

Punch the dough and divide it in 1/2, and and roll each 1/2 into a rectangular shape. Roll each loaf up and place into a 9×5 bread pan (loaf pan).

Cover the loaves with damp dishcloth and let it rise for 30 min.

Bake in 350 degree F oven and bake for approx. 30  min (we do 37), it just depends on the oven.DSC02909

Enjoy your bread, and thanks, The Frugal Girl!!
