Bread making

I decided to make these French toast roll ups and I ended it using all my bread. I knew I had no plans of going to the grocery store that day. An idea popped in my head that I would try bread making AGAIN! All the other times it just didn't turn out quite right. So I didn't have enough white flour but I also had some wheat flour. I read up on baking bread w wheat flour, tip: make sure you add more water than. When I made the cinnamon rolls I learned a lot. That recipe had step by step instructions, even how to add the flour. I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. So I used my cousins bread recipe. So I used less flour at a time and really let it knead into the dough. I also learned just cause it says 12 c of flour depending on the envioment it may not really need that much. Mine took 9.5. Okay the next thing I discovered my mixer can't handle that much dough. So next time I am going to have to half the recipe. I ended up finishing the kneading on the counter. My little cutie pie loves to now help momma in the kitchen. It doesn't matter what I am doing. She learned to climb up on our kitchen chairs this week and learned how to climb up on the metal chairs at church today. 

Look I got her washing dishes already, lol.
 Now the bread is rising!
And the finished product. 

I have to say I was pretty pleased. One tradition my aunt had when she baked bread she always shared a loaf w either a neighbor, friend etc. I decided I wanted to do the same. I really thought about who I wanted to share it w. Two days went by and I am like oh no I have to do it today. You know how you get busy with all kinds of stuff. I had decided on sharing my bread w a very special lady who is like my grandma. I had met her in the temple(she is a temple worker, Janice). She is so special to me! She had also never seen Faith. So after Faith's nap we just hopped in the car and went. I had actually found out she had been sick when we got there. She was so happy to see us, loved Faith of course. And like wise, we were happy to visit her and wished her well. That was such a sweet day!
