Nesting on a Cold Cloudy Fall Day

Nothing makes me want to nest and bake like a cold rainy fall day.  School let out early today and I was itching to get home and put on some hot soup and bake bread.

I started by putting on a pot of butter beans with ham and then I stirred up a batch of corn bread.

I made a pan of light rolls from my light roll recipe...and 2 loaves of bread from a recipe that I found on

We are planning on eating more healthy and this recipe has whole wheat and corn meal in it...very filling and very good.

While I was baking, I wanted  a nice warm drink to sip on so I put on a couple  of cups of Apple Cider and  made some mulled spiced cider...oh how I wish you could smell the hot breads baking, the butter bean and ham soup cooking, and the steaming hot mulled spice cider that I am sipping on.  
mmmm hot light roll with butter and spiced apple butter.......Oh, I am so glad that school got out early and that it is a cold and rainy day!

I plan to do some needle felting on a hat that I knitted and felted back in the wear to Wyatt's football game tomorrow night...temps are dropping and I want to be warm sitting in the stands cheering for the Trenton Bulldogs.

God bless you all.


  1. It was 72F here today. Really nice and a bit breezy. Spent a lot of time raking leaves. Could not bare to be inside. But cold to be here Saturday. better mink oil my winter boots. It will be here soon. Love your buns!!

  2. You have me sitting here with my mouth watering... ;-) Our day time temps are supposed to be in the 50's next week, so soup and freshly baked bread might be on our menu. :-)

  3. I would love to have your recipe for light rolls! Pretty please.
