you_make_beautiful_things One of the harder things to do as a momma, I believe, is having to go to work when your child is sick. And my mom has surgery today and also getting some biopsies done. Wish I could have one foot in IN there to help her and one foot at home to take care of my sweet baby. 3w

you_make_beautiful_things Great big beautiful sky on my run this morning- prayed for my little one whose fever was 102.9 when she woke up, my hubby who is coughing his lungs out and Josiah who still has a cough and a messed up shoulder and is at a wrestling meet in Florence all day today. I listened to "It is Well/Through it All"-Kristene DiMarco on repeat during my run, a great reminder that this too shall pass and He is good... 3w

you_make_beautiful_things Boule, boule... I find that even without my breadmaker, I can still make homemade bread- very yummy whole grain sourdough- albeit not as much as I used to. My counter space will also dramatically increase without the machine there as well and the kids are more interested in learning how to make it as well. #lookingatthebrightside 4w
  •   you_make_beautiful_things Yes it's about 30 years old @littleoakesfam the motor still works and it warms up but the kneading paddle doesn't spin. I'm not sure I could even get parts for it anymore bc it's so old. 4w
  •   you_make_beautiful_things Yes @rachel_meighan it's super easy! 4w
  •   littleoakesfam I'd love your recipe too! I love sourdough 4w
  •   3robins Mmmmm that looks delish!! 4w
  •   you_make_beautiful_things Im assuming you both know how to get a sourdough starter going but if not I can give you directions on that The recipes I use is from my breadmaker book and I've used it for years. I usually make the bigger loaf size and separate into two loafs. Start with 1 cup sourdough starter, add 3/4 cup warm but not hot water, add 1.5 TB sugar, 1.5 tsp of salt, 1.5 tsp yeast, and about 3 cups flour. I use a whole wheat/white flour mixture bc completely whole grain doesn't seem to rise real well. Then I knead it and let it rise for one hour, knead again, rise for another hour, shape into loaves and bake at 350 for about 18 minutes. Yum!! @littleoakesfam @rachel_meighan 4w
  •   you_make_beautiful_things It is! @3robins my family LOVES homemade bread! 4w
  •   rachel_meighan Can you give me directions for the sourdough starter? I've never made sourdough before! (Also, this looks super good and I'm very excited to try the recipe!) 4w
  •   you_make_beautiful_things To make the starter @rachel_meighan you mix one cup flour with one cup warm water in a glass or plastic (non-metal) bowl with a 1/4 tsp yeast. Mix well and cover lightly with a paper towel or cloth. It will rise so you want your container to about twice as big. After it rises, it's ready to use. For my recipe above, you would take out one cup of starter. To keep the starter going, you would then add another cup of flour/water back to it and mix in well. You can keep it going indefinitely and I find the bread tastes better the longer it's been around. I have one on the counter that's been going for about a month now. I hope that helps! 2w
