What a Whirlwind!

Wow…. This week has been a whirlwind!

Monday I was dress shopping with my mom and Mini Me for my brother’s wedding.  Luck for both of them!  They will look great!  Not so much luck for me…. I just couldn’t find anything that jumped out at me.  Luckily, I still have time.  Looking forward to seeing my older brother marry the woman of his dreams!!

Tuesday it was back to work… But just for a few hours… Got the call to pick up Mini.  Pink eye… Poor girl had a swollen face like no other.

Wednesday it was back to work again (thanks D for staying home with her)…. SWAMPED!!

And today… I has a case of the feels.  Sigh.  I’m sure at some point everyone just feels down for no reason.  I’ve been in a funk lately.  The only thing I can attribute it to is lack of sun.  Time to start taking my Vitamin D again!

The one thing that I have been able to do this week, mainly because it is soooo simple to do, is make bread.  With Mini’s allergies, finding store-bought baked goods is always a bit difficult… And to be honest… I would SOOO much rather feed her and D something I make myself with whole and natural ingredients.  Enter Honey Wheat Bread.

Seriously, this recipe is beyond easy, nutritious, and delicious!

I slightly modified this recipe I found on allrecipes.com.

Add ingredients according to the manufacturer’s directions to your bread machine. Use the wheat bread cycle and light color setting.

Let cool slightly and enjoy immediately, or cool completely and slice into pieces for sandwiches or toast.  Yum!

  1. Ahhh pink eye sucks! Sorry to hear it but she’ll get better soon. I know the feel of the sudden downers. That sucks too. Sometimes talking to people helps for me.

    That bread sounds pretty good and very simple! I never owned a bread machine but it sounds so easy to use it’ll probably be dangerous around these parts. Haha

    1. Bread machines are awesome! Bread is not a quick process, so really not as dangerous as you may think. It is very rewarding, though!

      And Pink Eye is horrible! D got it after Mini. Apparently some people around here need to learn how to wash their hands better.
