Whole Wheat Flat Bread

I love flat bread sandwiches.  The problem is most places that serve the flat bread sandwich is that it is white bread made into flat bread!  Not as tasty or healthy.  I have been asked by several, 'how do you make whole wheat flat bread?'  Here you go!  This is the fast and easy flat bread.  You can change this recipe by grilling the bread for official flat bread, but I am all about fast and easy.  Baking it in the oven is soooo much easier.  All done in one swoop.  Enjoy a whole wheat flat bread sandwich just like I do!

1 cup hot water 
2 Tbs olive oil
1 Tbs salt
2 Tbs honey
3 cups whole white wheat flour
2 Tbs SAF yeast
1 Tbs rosemary topping*

Step One:
Place all ingredients except topping* in your Bosch Universal Mixer.  Knead 6 minutes. 


Step Two:
Roll out thinly on stainless steel jelly roll sheet.  Brush with oil.  Bake 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.  Remember, you could grill this bread to have the official flat bread flavor rather than baking.  I just think it is easier to bake.

*Toppings...you can use rosemary, chopped or sliced onions; dill weed, granulated garlic; grated Parmesan cheese; or whatever topping suits your fancy and taste buds! 

 Note from Paula:  I didn't roll the bread dough out thin as I wanted a thicker 'flat bread.'  If you roll the dough out thinner, you will have the typical flat bread; AND if you grill it you will even have a more authentic flat bread.

My Mother

My Mother

Inline image 1 

My mom came to live with us 3 years ago.  Though physically healthy, she suffered from dementia and needed extra care.  We had had many memories prior to her moving in with us but the adventures increased with her present.  Mom enjoyed the multiple grandchildren that flowed through our home; and she kept up with our many family outings.  She blended in with our family and continued to pour her love out to all.
On March 30th, my mom died peacefully in her sleep.  I am grateful she is with Jesus; but really missing her quiet presence.  With that I want to express my tribute...

To My Mother 

I am thankful you were my mom.  So, where do I begin to rise up and call you blessed

I am thankful for your example of service.  I appreciate how you were attentive to those around you who might have a need and readily met those needs.  Your joy was in meeting the needs of those around you.  Thank you for your example in following Jesus as He told us to serve.
I am thankful for your example of hospitality.   You opened your home for Bible Study to enable young women to be mentored in the Word of God.  You opened your home with the mindset to give.  You rose to the challenge of graciously hosting large dinner parties to making the one individual who came to your home feel like a king.  Thank you for your example in following Jesus who made a Jewish wedding the best.

I am thankful for your example of love.  You followed I Corinthians 13 in your demonstration of love.  You were kind and thought no evil of others.  As I gathered memories for the funeral, all your children and grandchildren have had one major theme: they knew you loved them.  Thank you for following Jesus' in His command to love.

I am thankful for your example of a burden bearer.  You were my help and comfort for many storms of life as you quietly shared many of my burdens.  Thank you for following Jesus' command to bear one another's burden.
I am thankful for your example of a quiet listener.  You let me ramble on whether it was sorrows or funny stories.  I so enjoyed our quiet visits in your living room as my children played elsewhere.  I treasure the tears we have shed together in both laughter and sorrow.  Thank you for following Jesus' command to be swift to hear, slow to speak and slow to wrath.
I am thankful for your example as a prayer warrior.  You were before the throne of God on behalf of me and our family.  Thank you for following Jesus example Who is also our interceder before the Father.
This tribute cannot hold all the ways I have seen Jesus in your life, nor the ways I appreciate your sacrifices for me and our family.  I am so grateful God chose me to be your daughter.
Through your life you deserve and earned the promise of Proverbs 31:28, "Her children rise up, and call her blessed."
I love you mom.

Fast Breakfast Idea!

 1/2 pound fresh mushrooms (sliced)
4 green onions chopped
1/2 cup butter; plus 1 Tbs butter 
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
10 eggs
4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups small-curd cottage cheese

Makes 2 dozens.

1. Saute the mushrooms and onion in tablespoon of butter.  Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  In another bowl combine eggs and cheeses.  Melt remaining butter, add to egg mixture.  Mix in dry ingredients along with mushrooms and onion.


2. Fill greased muffin pan 3/4 full.  Bake 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until a knife inserts clean.

Note from Paula: These are great fresh and you can also keep them in the fridge and reheat them for a fast breakfast.  I didn't freeze them, but I think they would freeze.   You could have them available even longer for that high protein fast breakfast.

Happy Mother's Day!

Wishing all you moms out there...HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY.

This applies not only to those biological moms but to the women who have mentored and have their 'spiritual' children.  I think we all will be surprised when we get to see the whole spectrum of eternity and see all the lives we touched by our living for our King.

Enjoy your season mom.

Whether your mom is still alive or not, call her blessed today.  They deserve it. :)

Great timing for Mother's Day

 A perfect movie to take mom to, especially for Mother's Day!

I don't know whether I was just so tired that the movie "Mom's Night Out" was above and beyond hilarious or it genuinely was funny.  I opt for the latter that it was just down right funny as my whole family was in stitches. This is a movie that will make you laugh which is good medicine for your soul.

I think the movie is so funny because all the situations have happened to us whether a mom or not.  Have you ever been in a public bathroom waving your hand frantically over the automatic towel dispenser only to have nothing come out?  You then wave harder and then resort to pounding on the towel dispenser.  Of course, you would only start talking to the dispenser IF you were the only one in the bathroom.  Then, to your horror, you realize you are not the only one in the bathroom and all your ranting/ravings have been documented!   Well, this is just ONE of the funny scenes in the movie, "Mom's Night Out."

This is a wholesome bring the whole family to movie.  It is perfect for a  Mother's Day appreciation type movie.  In fact, that is exactly what my kids did for me.  We all packed up and went to the movies with my kids treating me.  I had soooo much fun and I know you will too!

Don't miss this movie...."Mom's Night Out!"

Watch the trailer... Click Here....this is the most hilarious movie.  YOU DON"T WANT TO MISS IT!
