I think I'm on the mend - I'm feeling much better this morning.....

I began by mixing and kneading the dough for 4 loaves of whole wheat bread - its currently rising in the microwave.  I place a glass measuring cup of hot water in the microwave, then heat it on HI for 1 minute.  Then I place the bowl of covered dough inside and close the door.  The moist warm air in the microwave makes the dough rise quickly.

Next I decided to make some black-eye pea and ham soup.  I had packages of diced ham in the freezer, and I just had a fancy for this soup.  It is simmering and is almost ready to chill and package for later consumption. 
The link to the recipe is found on my recipe page!

  1. Hey, thanks for sharing the microwave warming tip. Never ever needed help with rising in Florida. Big difference here in Colorado!!
