The Sisterhood, bread recipe and lots of sneezes

Wow, Jill finished her version of the Traveling Pattern in record time! Be sure to stop by her blog The Purple Peacock for your chance to join the Sisterhood and to admire Jill's lovely stitching!

Now, about that bread in my last post...I am not a Martha Stewart wannabe. I rarely feel like getting all homemaker, cooking and baking bread, I'd much rather sit and stitch and play with stash. When I do feel like baking...I seriously cheat! I use frozen bread dough. Put the frozen dough in a greased pan (any shape,) grease your plastic wrap, cover and put it in the fridge overnight. About three hours before you'd like your bread ready to eat remove it from the fridge, cut it into about 8 pieces. Dump about 3/4 of a cup of sharp cheddar cheese and a half cup sliced jalapenos over the dough and kind of mix it up. Make a pan shape out of the dough and put it back into your greased pan. Re-cover with the greased plastic wrap. This sits on your kitchen counter for about three hours for the dough to rise and then bake it according to the bread dough package's instructions. Easy peasy and oh, so yummy.

To answer a question...the fabric I tea dye usually gets about 10 to 15 minutes to soak. It really just depends how impatient I get. I'm pretty sure the longer you leave it in the tea the stronger the color.

Someone has the sneezles. Little miss Taco has been sneezing since Saturday morning. Big, wet, honking sneezes. And her eyes are a bit puffy and watery. I looked it up online and found out sneezing usually means a cat has an upper respiratory infection. Of course, kids and pets only ever get sick on a holiday weekend. When the vet opens tomorrow I'll make her an appointment and see why my kitty is sick. Poor baby Taco!

That bread sounds really yummy.

Sorry to hear about poor Taco. School starts -- colds begin.. even for cats I guess.

Barbi said...

I am soooo glad that you wrote that out. I'm going to try it next weekend.

Dee said...

Hope Taco is feeling better soon.

It was a baking weekend here too --- in my case, pumpkin muffins.

I'm a big fan of cheating in the kitchen. In my 34 years I've never once made a pie crust.

Poor kitty. It could be allergies, I've felt just like that bunny for a couple days now. Fingers crossed it turns out to be something very minor and easy to fix.

Awwwwwwwww poor Miss Taco - I hope she's feeling better soon!! I too wondered if it might be an allergy - our oldest lad starts the runny eyes and sneezing at about this time every year!

I'm a big fan of kitchen shortcuts too - I used pizza dough this weekend to make Pizza Bread ;)

I hope that Taco is feeling better soon! My cat Ben went through a sneezing episode that lasted for a couple of weeks and I got scared too because of what I had read online. It seemed to clear up on it's own and he's been fine for months since. Fingers crossed for you and Taco!

Poor little baby! and you too for having to worry! LOL at that rabbit picture too darn funny...I plan to use your little 'method' as soon as I can get some fabby to try it on! Keep us posted on little Taco.

Sandra said...

Thanks for the directions ;o) I don't think any supermaket here carries that dough, but what I do is go to the bakery and buy some fresh of the day ;P That's my trick for perfect pizzas and also for braided bread lol I'm just not strong (or patience) enough to make a dough.

Hope Taco is feeling better now.

Karan said...

My DS would love that bread. LOL
Poor Taco - hope it isn't anything serious.
LOL at the pic though. :0)

Christine said...

A recipe after my own heart! I usually make my bread in a machine, but I'm pretty sure I can adapt the basic dough to come up with something similar.
Poor kitty, hope shes better soon.

Julie M said...

That bunny pic is too funny! Sorry the cat is under the weather. Seems like everyone I know is sick right now. I don't even want to leave the house!

The bread sounds yummy, especially since I just remembered I haven't eaten yet today and it's almost noon!

Have a great day!

Carolyn NC said...

Love that pic - hope your little baby is better!

I think I'm going to have to try that bread sometime. I sounds really, really tasty! Thanks for the directions. I hope your kitty is better really soon.

Ah geez - now I have the urge to make up a loaf of bread. My favorite and therefore my downfall lol.
Hope the kitty is quickly on the mend.
