Quick question for you all ~

Is there any topic, other than grace based parenting that you’d like to have as on “off-day” discussion? Is there a way that we can take the discussion of gbp and expand it to be of more help to you?  How can I serve you, dear ones?

    I mentioned in another thread that I had headed back to the xanga site to get some info on healthy living. The book has prompted me to think about ways I honor/ dishonor this temple God has given me. It may just be that I am in that season in life or it may be that the changing of the seasons has me wanting to shed my winter blubber :). I always found your thoughts on seeking wholeness to be very edifying. I’d be thankful to read more, if you are so inclined.

  2. I second April’s request, sweetie. I am really working in this area and would love your thoughts.

    Ladies, can you please help me – I want to make certain that I understand your request.
    What exactly are you asking for? What exactly are you wanting to discuss? (I think I know what you’re wanting – but I hate to just yammer away at you with useless information. I have more respect for your time than that.) 🙂

    Thank you, my dears!

    Goodness, I wish that I had some kind of suggestion to offer. *taps fingers on keyboard* Maybe we should just talk about coffee? *laughs* 😉

    Hey, JavaJive… do you happen to have a good recipe for tasty unleavened bread? I’m making it for our Maundy Thursday dinner and it seems like the kind of thing you’d have at the ready.

    April….sssh….I DON”T!! Is that even legal? I just buy it from the store. The girls have tried making it once before, but we just used the recipe on the side of the box of matzoh flour.

    April- this is the recipe I use to make communion bread. A fair bit different from Matzoh, but still unleavened. How dough-y it is or how cracker-like it is depends on how thin you roll it out.

    This is designed to be kneaded in a bread machine, but cooked in the oven. (I use my kitchen aid)

    ¾ cup scalded milk
    1 egg
    ¼ cup honey
    2 ½ cup all purpose flour (can be substituted with wheat flour-I use whole wheat and then add in all purpose to reduce stickiness so I can need it out)
    ¼ cup butter
    1 tablespoon cinnamon
    1 teaspoon salt
    (optional):
    1 teaspoon Vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
    pinch of cardomon
    dash of clove

    Put flour, cinnamon, salt and honey (and optional vanilla) into a bread
    machine. Scald the milk on medium heat. Once scalded, turn heat down and
    add butter until melted. Pour into bread machine mixture.

    Set bread machine for knead setting only. When kneading is completed, take
    mixture out and place on a flour-coated flat surface. Roll out the flour
    with a rolling pin into a rectangular shape to fit cookie sheet until it
    is even and thin. Poke holes in the dough to avoid bubbling while cooking.

    This bread can now be prepared in any shape. If the bread is to be cut
    into shapes (i.e. biscuit sized circles), do this now and place individual
    pieces on a dry cookie sheet (no oil or cooking spray is needed). To make
    individual pieces, place entire dough on cookie sheet and cut edges to
    fit.

    Gather the unused dough, roll it out and repeat process above.

    Bake in oven at 375 degrees for 7 minutes. Do not over bake. Adjust time
    so that the bottom of the biscuit is slightly brown and the top is not
    browned (especially if small pieces are to be cut).

    Remove cooked bread from the cookie sheet and allow them to cool
    uncovered. For small pieces, use a pizza cutter to cut to desired size
    after it is removed from the oven. If the bread is overcooked, the pieces
    will crumble and break while cutting.

    The bread is unleavened (without sin), pierced (fork holes) and bruised
    (browned) in the manner of our Savior.

    Hope that helps! Recipezaar.com also has a lot of unleavened communion bread recipes, many without milk or eggs if that is what you are looking for.
