First off a little about me...I was never totally a SAHM when my kids were little....I worked when the two oldest were little. Then, after my 3rd child came along I really wanted to be home with her and was but pretty soon the need for a little extra income took over and I went to work part-time 2 days a week. I never got into all the things that homemaking is all about...cooking, baking, spotless cleaning, organization. Oh and I did have girlfriends that I envied. I did manage to keep the house manageable, laundry done, take care of the kids, and put dinner on the table every night. I tell you this to say I have not ever really been to homemaker type...but God does work on a person's heart and change the desires of a person. I am so into being a homemaker with all of the aspects that go with it now! So with it comes new adventures. I recently talked to my daughter and suggested we have a bread making day a week. So, last week we had our first! I have never in my life made bread from scratch! I have made banana bread and such but never made bread using yeast. I was very excited for this adventure. So last week we made Cinnamon Raisin Bread and yeast rolls... recipe for those my daughter had. The only critique I would say about the Cinnamon Raisin Bread is that it definitely needed more cinnamon. We had a really great time making bread together and I am so glad that it will become a weekly adventure.
