I’m on top of my planning this week. On Sunday the girls and I made two loafs of honey whole wheat bread and a dozen wheat tortillas for the week (the house smelt wonderful!).  I have just about everything for my menu on hand, so I’ll just have to grab some fresh fruit and milk later at some point.  Here Is what the Ruff family will be enjoying this week.  At the end there is the recipe for the homemade bread!

Honey Whole Wheat Bread1 C. Warm water
1 tbsp  milk
2 tbsp  olive oil
2 tbsp  honey
2 tbsp  brown sugar   (if you don’t have any on hand its just a cup of sugar and a tbsp of molasses)
1 tsp    salt
1 1/2 c  unbleached all purpose flour
1 1/2 c whole wheat flour
2 tsp   rapid rise yeast (or one packet)
Combine the first 6 ingredients. Add yeast and flour, Kneed until smooth and elastic (10-15 minutes).  Place in a greased bowl and let rise for one hour in the oven with a pan of boiling water (keeps the oven warm plus the added moister helps the yeast).  Punch down (this doesn’t mean you literally punch the dough with your fist.  Use your knuckles to push the air out of the dough).  Shape into a loaf or ball which ever you prefer, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.  Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.  Bake for 30-35 minutes.  (If crust begins to brown early place a piece of foil on top).
