Food Friday

Well, here is the bread.

It was not the best bread but every time I make it, it gets better. I had left home for the day and thought I would get back in time to bake it accordingly, but that did not happen. We got home about 4 hours after the fact and we had a mound of dough sticking up from each pan. I punched it down and baked it....not smart. We had the thickest bread you have ever eaten. It was not hard, just thick and heavy. I threw it out and it weighed down the kitchen trash bag. We laughed. I have attempted cinnamon rolls and have a little ways to go before I master them. Anyway, it is a learning process and a lot of fun!

I am thankful for a warm oven, hands that can work with dough, a husband who supports my attempts to master way too many things, and the smell of fresh bread baking in my house.

I love Paula's holiday edition.
This is not the current one, but a photo of the first one I ever bought. I bought it in an airport in Phoenix the week before Thanksgiving. I used to travel with the job I had at that time. I got it and gave it to my Mama as a pre-holiday happy....after I read it on the plane, of course. I try to purchase one each year. I even attempted to make this cake on the front of this one for my Mama. I got pretty close to it. In fact, we took a photo of me with the cake and this magazine and my Mawmaw sent it to Paula. We got a nice email back but I was never published. Ha.
Anyway, I love the recipes and the ideas she has each year. If you purchase the one for this year, the pillows in the chairs on page 16 are the pillows on my couch! I had no idea we were "trendy"! Ha...I was actually unsure if the pillows on my couch were even cute, so I guess I will keep them since Paula has them! :)
I am thankful for fun memories with my family and the laughs that they provide for me, year after year.


And don't you just love the holiday creamer flavors?!
I went to my friend LaShay's for coffee yesterday and she had this pumpkin spice flavor. She said she saw it at the store and almost trampled a lady trying to get into the cooler to get it!

Do you love flavored coffee and if so what is your favorite?
I like Pumpkin and I am thankful my friend had some to share with me yesterday!

And what is Food Friday without a photo of the little foodie?!

I decided to not post a photo of him in his highchair again this week. You people are going to start thinking this is the only place he sits! We were playing outside waiting for Daddy to get home yesterday and I took this little picture. I thought this was cute. I love that he can now wear the plethora of overalls he has in his closet. They are too cute!

I am thankful for this little boy and the joy he brings me each day.
