Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

It's Christmas All Over Again

I am a little bit embarrassed to be writing a post about this subject but there was so much excitement in our house tonight that I just had to.

For Christmas I asked for Nutrimill Grinder and Bosch to make homemade bread with. I know it sounds like a weird request but I have friends who make bread and it is absolutely to die for. Well last week the UPS man brought us our new toys and all of us girls were so excited. My husband went on Saturday and got the wheat and we were ready to make our first loaves of bread.

Well tonight I finally attempted to make this wonderful, mouth-watering, extremely nutritious bread. It turned out AWESOME. The girls and I stood in the kitchen and devoured half of a loaf in about 30 seconds and that is no lie. The baby would not eat anything at dinner but bread so I guess it was a hit.

The kids were begging to have a piece with dinner but we were having enchiladas and spanish rice so I told them they could wait until the morning. The excitement was so intense in our house it really did feel like Christmas again.

I am so blessed to have children who get this excited about something so little. My nine year old looked at me and said, "Mom your the best." I thought to myself well I'm glad she thinks this and I can only imagine the royal treatment I would get if I took them to Disney world.

This a moment for me to thank God and really see how "Counting it all JOY..." is a wonderful thing.

I have the grinder but not the Bosch mixer. I just use a Kitchen Aid. What a BLESSING.
The Bread Beckers have wonderful recipes.

I love homemade bread, but haven't used my breadmaker once this winter - I need to get that thing out!

Hey - thanks for coming over and leaving the well wishes - I am fine - only need to remember about that bra thing the next time I ever have to call 911. Hope to see you soon. Kellan

Oh I can not wait to try the fresh ground wheat. I love making bread for the family.

We call it "breadhead" over here. Olivia and I are the breadheads, and Reece and I are the cheeseheads. Notice I'm in both of those "low carb, low cal" options, lol.
