There is a lot of updating to do here. I have gone MIA on blogging but if you follow me on instagram you are all up to date on what I do almost every day :) My last post was in December, and honestly I can't even remember that far back, luckily I take pictures with my phone all the time. (Sorry my instagram friends, I ONLY take pictures with my phone now hahah).
We moved back to the TUKEE (Awhatukee for those non-arizonans). We LOVE it here! We have a lovely house we rent from my dad. He fixed it up and now we rent it. Here are a few before and after pics.
Except now there's a blue door :)
My brother-in-laws and father work wonders don't they? We are very grateful for all the help we had fixin this beauty up :) We moved in in February and love being back in the Tukee.
In May I graduated from ASU and my little brother graduated from Desert Vista. WHOO HOO! He gets his mission call in the mail possibly TOMORROW! I am freaking out, but I am so proud of him being ready to serve.
We celebrated our one year on May 27, WHOO HOO! In June to celebrate we went to California. We stayed in San Clemente and toured around to the different cities to visit our favorite things like Kelly and Derek, Disneyland, and the Temple.
The day after the 4th of July, we went to the Lake with Billy and Katy and had a BLAST!!
Well thats as recent as it's gonna get! I will need yo update about Mckay's mission call and I have some other very important news that needs to be told....but it has to wait to make sure it's official :)
P.S We got our year supply of flour and sugar (50 lbs. each) so I have been baking a lot! These are 2 of my recent obsessions!
Aunt Debi's Quick Bread - ( I want to learn how to make my own bread, so I started easy)
1 T. yeast
2 c. warm water
1 T. sugar
1 t. salt - (some like more salt- 2 t.)
4 c. flour
- stir, let rise 1 hour. ( don't let salt and yeast touch until the stirring is happening, I learned this trick from my sister)
-shape, oil and corn meal bread pan ( I just did pam and some flour)
- bake 425 for 10 min.
- 375 for 15 min.
- make 2 rounds or 2 long loaves ( I made one delicious big one)
HOMEMADE TORTILLAS = DELICIOUS ( 1/3rd this recipe! Trust me. Unless you need a million tortillas)
12 c. flour
3 t. salt
6 t. baking powders
3 c. warm milk- maybe a little more
mix flour, salt and baking powder in your mixer. add oil then milk and continue mixing until a large stick ball forms. Wrap in plastic and let rest for 30 min. I put golf ball size flattened on my fry pan with olive oil. You can freeze them for later.
