Betsy needed a new home. Aunt Bonnie gave her to me. She has a few feed sack dresses that Aunt Bonnie’s Mom made and a pink jacket with a matching pink bonnet.
Megan enjoys playing with Betsy. She has to be careful because the doll is over 70 years old and very fragile.
Betsy now is in a basket with the rest of my doll collection. She is probably my favorite because she is the oldest and she has a very special story for me.
For Audrey’s birthday, I combined recipes to make her a grain free chocolate peanut butter cake. The cake is from lifemadefull.com and the peanut butter and chocolate layers where recipes I found a long time ago. I put peanut butter m&ms on for decoration. It turned out very good! It was rich though!
We found a super easy bread recipe that we have been experimenting with. You mix together 3 cups flour, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp yeast and 1.5 cups water. Mix it well and then let set for 8-18 hours. Heat your oven to 450 degrees. Put a dutch oven in the oven with the lid on and warm up for 30 minutes. Place dough on parchment paper, add flour if needed! Let rest while oven warms up. Bake in dutch oven for 45 minutes with the lid on. Then take off and let cook another 10 minutes or until golden brown.
This weekend we were vendors for Ruth and Friends tea (they were raising money for Soup for Success). I made candy! I had caramels, toffee and mint bark. I do not know if having samples would have helped any, there were so many other sweets there for the tea. But next time, I will try to have some.
I had fun! I learned to interact with people better. Maybe I can do this again one day, we will see.
