Welcome one and all

Welcome to my journey of self discovery, my new life in a small town 1000's of kilometers from my family and oldest friends. The joys of raising a toddler and all that it entails. The excitement of being a newly wed ...along with the trials and tribulations of being a military spouse!

Once you start you just cant stop!

One of my very first posts as a new blogger was about the drastic hair cut I had.... well of course after the initial cut, not exactly what I was aiming for, but still very nice it was time to go even shorter
Although still not quite exactly what I was hoping for, I will admit it is allot easier to manage and takes at least 10 minutes off the blow drying time!

Making bread

My second attempt at making Bread...

Yes that's right I said second ...lol, to be honest my first attempt was with A recipe that was given to me by my aunt and I am quite sure she was just going by memory, however I think that the amount of yeast that she said to use was for a larger amount of bread, all I could taste was yeast......admittedly I don't think that I let the bread rise long enough, and also that you are supposed to kneed it in between rises.  Lesson learned!!! Shannon has no patience sooo she must use a quick rise recipe.

second 15 min rise
I should mention that I found the recipe on google when I was looking for a fast recipe, the recipe I used was the firmipam  2hour recipe

and now making pan buns

why not make some Cinnamon buns too!

  And now for the finished product!!!

Ooooh so yummy!

From start to finish including bake time this project took me 2hours and 25 minutes! Not to shabby for my second attempt

Where have you been?

So it has been brought to my attention that I have been very negligent in my blogging.......umhumm (you know who you are...lol)

Where did I leave off......last time I blogged, I was in Alberta.  Just to give you all a quick update as to what has been happening, I have since returned home to Ontario to nurse an injured husband whom had a small accident with the lawnmower.  I have started working at a local retail store as a cashier and have found out today that I may have my foot in the door at a company that is in my field of disability services.

Because my trip home was unplanned and a bit of an emergency situation, I left my daughter with her grandparents....she is having the time of her life with dance classes and gymnastics!

Finally my mother has committed to a date to bring her home! They will be home in 2weeks!
