It was a beautiful Father’s Day weekend. These are some of the ways we celebrated.
* time with new and seasoned daddies. Oh how blessed we are to have some awesome fathers in our family.
* cookouts and campfires
* worshiping the Lord
* homemade vanilla ice cream and fresh picked berries
* playing in the gardens
* checking the bees
* making more strawberry wine
* homemade soft pretzels for dinner( in which Grace declared that was not very healthy)
* more slip-n-slide fun
Nothing fancy, just keeping with routine around here. Sweet and simple but oh so lovely and relaxing.
The Most Delicious Soft Pretzels
2 1/2 C. Warm H2O
2T yeast dissolved in H2O
2/3 C brown sugar
6-7 C. bread flour or white flour
Let dough rise for a few hours. Roll out and shape into a large pretzel. Brush the unbaked pretzel in baking soda mixture (2t baking soda in 1C warm H2O) This gives it the brown color as it bakes. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt.
Bake @ 450 for 8-10 min
Drench in butter and eat till your tummy is content! The go back for seconds!
