An Update!

So last weekend my dearest Stephanie got married. It was a beautiful ceremony, and the dessert reception was nice too. I made cookies for that, but didn't get any pictures (I was a co-maid of honor, so I was thinking of many things other than grabbing my camera before we left), so I will leave that to when Sarah sends me pictures. (I stole this picture of them from her blog, It was taken honeymooning in Florida I believe.)

This past weekend I went home because my mom had a birthday party for me (my birthday's on Wednesday! Ooo excitement!). My daddy bought me green and yellow and white carnations. He's so sweet. It was a really nice weekend though. I got to see lots of people; there were the usuals, friends of the family, my family, Amanda had to come late because of work, and Brian obviously was there. All of the Mosses came (Ben, one of the sons, is my oldest friend, we played together before kindergarten). My sister Lona came, which was nice to see her, and unexpected because she had said that she had to work. And one of my friends that goes to SUNY Fredonia (about twenty minutes from my house) was able to spare his Saturday to come, which was really neat because I hadn't seen him in a long time. Even some friends from school here drove the two hours to my house to come. My mom made me an awesome cake that was so awesome I'm not even going to try to describe it, but will post a picture when my mom sends me one (again, forgot the camera, I'm getting bad at this).

Before I went home, I tried to made a seed bread based on this recipe with added 2 Tbsp each (to a double batch of dough) of poppy seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, and millet seeds. I made one loaf and a loaf of rolls to take home to have with the barbeque meat that mom made. It turned out okay. It was really good when it was still warm, but became rather hard after it cooled. It didn't really rise a whole lot, I think because of the seeds (that has happened before with regular seed breads), so I think that I will try a different approach next time (perhaps flattening the dough and rolling it up like cinnamon or raisin bread). It is tasty, but definitely needs to be tightly sealed and warmed before being consumed. This is a fresh out of the oven roll, with honey atop.
