Cracked Wheat Bread and Fonts
Cracked Wheat Bread for Bread Machine
My husband and I love bread. Good, homemade, filling, yeasty bread. We love to have it toasted with all natural peanut butter and my homemade strawberry jam, or with a little butter when it's straight out of the oven. It is a wonderful addition to a meal of homemade soup.
I had some cracked wheat ( bulgar wheat) in my freezer. It's been there a LONG time. But it was still fine. I have an old bread cookbook and found a recipe for Cracked Wheat Bread. It was grand. Since getting the cookbook 30 years ago, the Internet has become my main source for recipes. I did a search and found many recipes for Cracked Wheat Bread. I haven't made all of them yet but this one was VERY easy. If you click on the picture, you will go to the website where you can get the recipe. All of the ingredients can be put in a bread machine. If you want to bake it in the bread machine you can. I like to put my bread in a loaf pan so I set my bread machine to the dough setting. If you slice each loaf into 16 slices, each slice will have 121 calories, 1.6 g fiber, and 3.5 grams protein. I had a slice for breakfast. I sliced 1 oz. of Cabot's Seriously Sharp Cheddar Cheese onto the top of the slice and top browned it in my toaster oven. Yummy! With a bowl of fresh cantaloupe and peaches, I had a delicious breakfast.
As for embroidery, I have been busy this summer. I'll have to post pictures of some of my projects in other blog posts. One of the things that has kept me busy for the past month is fonts. I follow some wonderful embroidery pages on Facebook. One of the pages, 8 Claws and a Paw , offered a 1 month font membership. I looked at their fonts and decided it was well worth it. I purchased the membership and started buying fonts. Once they are purchased, they are sent to me in an e-mail. I could only purchase 10 at a time. It took me many hours of sitting and "shopping". After receiving the e-mail with the link to download the fonts, I had to create a folder for each font and unzip each file. This isn't difficult at all for one or two items but I purchased over 200 fonts!!! Now I'm creating pictures of the fonts so my customers can see their choices. As you can see below, I'm working my way through alphabetically. The fonts below are a small sampling of some of the wonderful fonts I have now.
When you order from Nan's Nappies, you can pick out a few fonts that you like and I will e-mail you a picture of what the words you want will look like in that font.
