Cooking Day yesterday!!!

Wow.. I cooked yesterday!!

Yeah, I usually do cook at least SOMETHING during a day, but I cooked. I made a chocolate cake, from scratch, I made a loaf of whole wheat bread, from scratch, I made Italian Ribs and Rice and Artichokes Au Gratin for supper. Oh... Everything was sooooo good. This cooking could become addicting! I've only been cooking for ... 40 some years, yeah... it could become addicting after awhile. I don't mind the cooking... I don' t like the cleanup. Nope... don't like that part at all. LOL

So... ok.. I'll give you the bread recipe in this post. It turned out good. Not bad at all. I'm not sure where I found it. It's titled Wonder Bread. I have browsed the webside for the recipe I have. Found one at Taste of Home that, I think, someone used but made changes to, like "do NOT omit this" to "or, another 1/4 C all purpose flour" and make two loaves to one loaf. I changed this one that I used, too. LOL I used 4 C whole wheat flour and omitted the 1/4 C semolina or more flour. I still should have used a little less whole wheat, I think. It still tastes good, though.

Wonder Bread I don't know where I got this one but there is one on Taste of Home Site

1 1/4 C water 4 1/2 tsp dry yeast
2 Tbs sugar 2 tsp salt
1/ C melted butter 4 C unbleached flour
1/4 C semolina melted butter for glazing

Process ingredients on the dough cycle in your machine. Gently deflate dough. Form into an oblong loaf and place in a lightly greased 9" x 5" pan. Place entire affair in a large plastic bag. Allow to rise until the dough is about 1 inch above the pan rim. Brush with melted butter and place in preheated 350 degree F oven. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes until evenly browned.

Denny even said it turned out good, and he hates wheat bread. LOL
