Homemade Bread--simply

This Recipe for Homemade Bread came from my Mother-in-law. It is super simple, very tasty, and very cheap!! No kneading required. 3 cups flour 1 1/2 cup warm water 2 tsp. salt 1 tablespoon yeast (sm packet) Mix all together. Leave in a loaf shape in bowl and sit it aside for 2 hours. Heat oven and baking pan (covered roaster, dutch oven) to 425 degrees. Shape bread again if needed, and put into hot pan. Cover and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake 20-25 minutes.

The Ultimate Closet

So the children have been out of the house for years.....what to do with the extra bedrooms? I for sure want to keep one bedroom as a spare room for guests, but the other bedroom is now my closet. I added an extra closet for clothes. The walls have several racks for me to hang my jewelry on. All of my stuff is easy to see and easy for me to make selections. One wall has all of my handbags hanging on hooks, also easy to see. I have a desk that I use as a home for my makeup and hair products. This is where I put on my makeup everyday. This keeps our bathrooms free of all of my stuff. And of course, the room is lined with my shoes!!! I love it and highly recommend it!
