Hello sweet friends!
I did a post back, almost a month ago, about a group of lovely friends and Sils which we gather together for a group Rosary Praying here in my house and we pray for our needs, for others, for the countries that are going through hardship in the world, etc.
There is so much to pray for now days... Matthew 18:20 says:
"For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them!"
I can pray with my friends for your special needs too, just let me know and you do not have to be Catholic, we are all children of our Father in heaven, Jesus Christ.
Than after we retreat to the dining room for a simple tea with bread, butter, cheese and marmalade. Here is my table for the ladies. We were ten, three of them had to leave after praying, therefore, we were ten in the table.
|Since we were only ten for tea, I set up the large dinner table for all of us, which is nice and cozy...otherwise I'd have to fix the breakfast table as well, like last month.|
|Home made bread, mother's great bread recipe, which brings me lots of childhood memories, specially of my dear dad, who just loved it and my mom baked it often specially for him!|
|The bread recipe makes two loaves. The recipe is at the end of the post; it's not difficult at all!|
|In the back there's pieces of cheese, ready to just place on bread. |
Cookies I made from the Cookie Factory machine.
|This is a pretty small German cut crystal flower vase. I know it looks big in the pic, but it's not and... it's so cute!|
|I love these German tea dishes I 'gave myself for my birthday' three years ago, lol|
|A placed the two teapots along with the tea chest with a pewter top; here in the breakfast table.|
|In the back some pink and purple water glasses. I bought them cause they had them displayed with the dishes in the store's window and fell in love with the entire thing, lol!|
Thank you so much for your sweet and generous visits, as you always make my day!
Thanking the lovely and gracious hostesses for their great parties!
Mother's Two Loaf Recipe Bread
4 Cups all purpose flour
2 eggs room temp.
1 ounce of dry yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1 1/2 Cups warm milk
1/2 Cup dissolved margarine or butter (I use butter)
1 Tsp. of aniseed, sesame seeds, or sunflower seeds...whatever you wish.
Dissolve the margarine, or butter in the microwave. Add it to the warm milk, plus the 1 tsp. sugar and mix with a wire mixer.
Place these mixture in the K. Aid, or electric beater of your choice,or even in a food processor... and now add the rest of the ingredients and mix well with the hook feature, if it's a beater machine.
Grease and flour two loaf kind of molds and pour the batter evenly between the two. The batter is very loose and sticky, almost like a thick cake type!
Cover with a cloth and let it rise twice the volume in a very warm place in your kitchen.
Pre-heat oven to 375F and than after dough it's doubled in size, than bake the loaves for 20 minutes, or until they look golden on top.
NOTE: You can brush each loaf before with an egg wash to make them shine...me, I always forget, lol!
