Work is love made visible
I am feeling under the weather..
We are out of yogurt and bread.
We are always out of yogurt and bread by Sunday.
Into the kitchen I go.
I will be posting, God willing, my rhythm for each day this week. For an explanation on rhythm click here
I only made yogurt and bread today, I reflected on the women in the prairie who did this wether they wanted to or not because they had to feed their families. I am sure on a regular day they were more tired than my sicky, tired self is feeling today. With that in mind, I pulled out the grain mill and my supplies and made our favorite bread.
(makes two loaves)
2 c water
1/2 c honey
1/3 c butter
6 cups whole wheat flour
1 c qiuck cook oats
2 tsp sea salt
4 1/2 tsp dry active yeast
5 tbsp olive oil
Heat the water, honey and butter until they reach about 120 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix the oats, salt, yeast and 5 cups of the flour
add the honey mixture and mix on low for a minute
Stay tuned for the rest of the week, I will be posting my rhythm for each day of the week. Here is a little poem I wrote to remind my family of what each day is for.
The rhythm of our week
written by Tricia Gaitan (Crunchy Catholic Momma)
Monday kneads the water and flour, bowls of dough hour by hour
Tuesday pulls the needle and thread, to sew the blankets for the bed
Wednesdays linens washed and sunned, till all the clothes are clean and done
Thursday stop to search and look until you find the perfect book
Friday works the soil by hand, to weed and plant the good Lord's land
Saturday time to plan ahead and gather the grains to bake the bread
Sunday comes to give us rest, Thank the Lord for our little nest.
If you have a rhythm for your week, please post it in the comments so we can all learn from each other.
