Savory Cheese and Onion Whole Grain Bread

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Now that I have a good process in place for a single loaf of bread, the fun begins to be creative with flavor and added nutrition from seeds. This is the same process as the loaf before, set the whole grain flour to soak overnight in water and a kiss of apple cider vinegar. It is a good idea to cut the cheese into cubes and let it dry out also, that way you get cubes of cheese baked in the bread...

350-degree oven

The day before:
1 c water
1 t apple cider vinegar
3-4 c whole grain flour
Combine and let sit, covered overnight. If desired, cut the cheddar cheese into cubes and set aside to dry. Remember to mix in enough flour to have a dough consistency, not a batter.

When you are ready to bake:
2 T water
2 T honey
2 T oil

1 T chia
1 T flax
2-3 t dry onion pieces
1/4 c hemp hearts
1 T hemp whole seed protein
1/3 c oats
1 t salt (try 1/2 salt and 1/2 garlic salt)

Add ingredients in order listed, starting with the soaked flour mixture. Use the dough cycle and process.

Shape by hand, and final rise:

completed dough
1 c diced sharp cheddar
oat bran or a small amount of flour

Sprinkle the work surface with oat bran, add completed dough, flatten and scatter cheese over the top. Knead lightly using only as much oat bran as needed to keep dough from sticking to work surface. When cheese is evenly mixed in, shape into a loaf and place in prepared loaf pan.


Let rise in a warm protected space, the oven with the oven light on is perfect!

When doubled, remove dough, preheat the oven, then bake 30-40 minutes or until done in your oven.

Frugal Bacon Storage!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe frugal hack from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I really was not sure how to title this post. But the truth is when I open a package of bacon, often when I need/want bacon again, it has molded!...

Now I can tell you that any bacon lover will say, molded bacon is NOT acceptable! And I can tell you that any keeper of a frugal kitchen will say, molded bacon is acceptable. What to do, what to do?

This is our new bacon keeping strategy. Freeze the bacon in layers of 6 slices (or what works best for you family) and keep it in the freezer. It is simple, but I did photo the process for you.

Keep bacon safe from molding, with storage in the freezer. Perfect for smaller families.

Layer waxed paper and sliced bacon on a flat pan.

Repeat until you are out of bacon!

Cover the top of the last layer, place in the freezer until frozen solid.

Tap out of the pan.

Label the storage bag (my worst omission in the kitchen).

Return to the freezer for storage.

It will be easy to separate the layers and only get out what will be used when it is needed.  No more moldy bacon!

Enjoy!

A single loaf of whole grain bread...

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Adapting some of our recipes to smaller portions and/or easier to prepare in an RV kitchen has either been a smashing success or has produced something that no one really wants to eat, and at this point, I am referring to bread....a grain brick doorstop.

Twice now I have tried to take my four loaf recipe and simply slash it into 1/4 measurements and give it a go. It did not go, it stopped! But my hobby if you will is making food, delicious food, so again I will take a stab at it.

I am starting small and easy, whole grain with honey and oats. From there I can add or subtract ingredients to get a loaf similar to my DKB bread. I do like soaking my whole grain flour overnight. But I will confess now, that once I put that mixture into the bread machine, I have throw caution to the wind and gotten a bit carried away. Thinking that it is only about one tablespoon of ingredients from the list, but in reality, 16 tablespoons make another cup of dry ingredients....I knew from this that I had to change my method.

The first change is to start simple, measure the extra ingredients very carefully and add a bit of water as well. Here we go!

The day before:
1 c water
1 t apple cider vinegar
3-4 c whole grain wheat flour

Stir together, a few lumps are fine. You will want the consistency of a dough, not a batter.
Cover and let rest overnight.

The next day, add all ingredients to the ABM pan in the following order:

2 T water
2 t yeast - I use instant yeast for all baking
2 T oil
2 T honey
soaked grain dough, from the day before
1/4 c gluten flour
1/2 c oats
1 t salt

Use the dough cycle. When completed, remove dough from pan.

Deflate, shape into a loaf and place in prepared loaf pan.

Let rest until doubled in size. Bake 35 - 40 minutes or until done in your oven.

Enjoy!

Our Sunday dinner's will go on!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

Today is the day after the third garage sale, we are a bit weary, and the house a bit empty. My dear husband is watching the game (really that means whatever football game is on) and I am sorting through my cookbooks. In the past few years, I have gone from over 2000 to only those that will fit on two half-size bookcases.

Our transition to 5th Wheel Living, an update on our progress.

I could keep them all if I wanted, but they would be packed away in boxes, and I would forget to use them, so it really makes more sense for others to enjoy them. There will be room for both of the bookcases in the Homestead House, plus they will all be in plain sight. I don't mind paring down, I will concentrate on those foods that are my favorites, whole grain cooking, and baking, legumes along with canning and preserving.

As we sell off these pieces of furniture and the household goods we won't be needing or taking to the Homestead House, our little home here on the peninsula has taken on a quiet echo. My feelings of how to live mindfully are taking over and my creativity is being called upon time and time again. It is all becoming comfortable like a well-worn chambray shirt.  While I look forward to the changes, one change that will not happen involves my beloved Sunday dinners.

Our transition to 5th Wheel Living, an update on our progress.

No matter where we are, or what we are eating, Sunday dinner will be served. We will sit at our dining table with a cloth napkin in our lap, enjoying what we have cooked, and the company of the other. Because it is the little things that make a home and keep the family together. It is what you do regularly that defines you. And to me, Sunday dinner is family and family is love.

Along with selling the furniture and household goods, we are also eating down the pantry and freezer. I have some preserved lemons and a jar of capers to use up. We have a chicken to roast, along with some red skinned potatoes. The flavors of lemon, capers, and chicken will taste wonderful. This kind of spur of the moment creative cooking is enjoyable to me and always has been.

Our transition to 5th Wheel Living, an update on our progress.

Earlier today we had discovered that the nectarines purchased on our last grocery trip had begun to mold as they rested in the cloth-lined (I think this is where we got into trouble...) basket. I cleaned them up the best I could by cutting off and discarding the moldy parts. The edible parts were sliced to bake up into a delicious fruit crumble. And as luck would have it, I had a generous cup of red currents in the freezer to add in for color and flavor. Except for a bit of rhubarb to cut, the currents signal the end of our harvests for the year.


And so it goes with our transition process. We glean, and sort, and decide.
