Make Your Mark In Life : Mixed Media Mail Art
Our daily routine hasn’t changed much but we did have a busy weekend. We bought part of a cow from a local farmer to fill our freezer. Not only did I get to see my cousin for the first time in months, but we got lots of hamburg and cuts of steak that we have never tried. We are looking forward to some delicious grilled meat over the next few months. I can’t tell you how many time the meat shelves at the store have been empty in the past month. Hubby and I discussed buying part of a cow before but with the meat shortage in the stores we thought this was the perfect time to give it a try
I haven’t done too much reading the past few months as my tribe is keeping me busy but I think my reading mojo just came back. I just got this Book for my birthday so I am hoping to get some answers to my FAQ in bread baking. I am having issues with oven temperatures and under-cooked centers. Hopefully, I will eventually get this down. I would love to share my bakes with others but my worst fear is giving someone a loaf with an under-cooked center.
We have still been busy baking bread but I will spare you the pictures. My middle son, baked me a delicious healthy Gingerbread cake for my birthday yesterday. I didn’t take a picture but he did an awesome job!
I made this Sourdough Cinnamon Crumb Cake for dessert this week.
Making the Mail Art
I am finally getting in some creative time and this week I worked on mail art. I like working with the 4×6 size as it is small but not too small.
My background is patterned paper covered with embossing, paint and tissue paper. Everything else was a scrap from somewhere on my table. Easy Peasy.
Today, I am joining the tea day ladies, hosted by Elizabeth and Bleubeard. My tea is Mahamosa Strawberry Lychee Sencha Tea 2 oz. I received this from my hubby for my birthday and it is SO delicious! It has a distinct strawberry flavor as well as a sweet taste from the Lychee fruit. My mouth loved it!! My husband certainly knows the way to my heart!
Any thoughts on getting your bread centers fully cooked as well as convection vs. conventional ovens?
Happy Tea Day,
