Kristen's Bridal Shower


This past Saturday, we Weems women and Kristen's mom, Nancy, gave Kristen a Bridal Shower. The weather was downright HOT but the show had to go on. We ate a fabulous buffet, played games, opened gifts and had a really rich cake for dessert.

A big thank you to all who helped! First, Nancy and Tim for providing their home and the delicious food. Nancy's sisters, April and Betty, for the beautiful arrangement of food and flowers. Rebecca McKenzie for making cute little party favors and the "Famous Spouse" game and prize. Tiffany, for a fun Bridal Candy Game complete with fabulous chocolate candy bars of ALL kinds. And Melody, for taking on the Bouquet Game and her scented Bath & Body Gift.

Without each of you contributing, it would not have been as easy and fun. So THANK YOU!
That being said, I want to tell you just how happy I am to have Kristen as a daughter-in-law. She is everything and more that I could have wanted for my son and for my family. She's beautiful, educated, always of good spirit and helpful. I absolutely LOVE her.

It was pure pleasure honoring you this way Kristen, with a shower. Hope you had fun!

Sourdough Bread

A few of you have been asking about the recipe for Sourdough Bread that I use and I figured this would be the easiest way to give it out. This recipe makes 2 loaves.

MIX TOGETHER:
260 g. of actively fed sourdough starter (about 1 cup)
460 g. water (about 2 cups)
90   g. Canned milk or milk that has been scalded and cooled. Can use water or plant milk instead (About 6 Tbsp)

20 g. Kosher Salt (1/8 cup)
900 g. flour (all purpose or white bread flour, don't use whole grain, to heavy to rise well) 7 1/2 Cups

Mix the starter, water, milk (or the substitute) together thoroughly. Then add in the salt and flour.
Put the dough in a covered container and let it ferment at room temperature.
After 2 hours fold the dough. How To Fold The Dough
After an additional 2 hours, fold the dough again.
When the dough is is finished fermenting (after a total of 5-6 hours - when dough is bubbly, soft and will pull a windowpane) divide dough into two pieces around 855 g. each.
Do a first shaping of the dough and let r…

Hey Retirement! Don't take OUR Date Night Away!!

"Wait! Did we budget for Date Night??"

Wednesday night is Date Night at our house. It's been that way for a LONG time! And we didn't want retirement to do away with our weekly fun. So today, I'm going to cover some good ways to keep that fun coming and be able to pay for it with slightly reduced funds.
Put some money in the budget. Analyze what you can afford and how many times you will be going out during the month. If you get paid twice a month, budget for two date nights. If you get paid weekly, you only need to budget it in for the week. For us, we are getting paid once a month so we will budget for 4 to 5 nights out. We set aside about $20 to $25 per week for date nightRemember, it's about spending time together not how fancy the dining is. You can make a picnic one week and then spend double the following week at a nice place. You can make dinner at home and go to see a play or movie. In our case we could go to the beach with some hot dogs, potato chips a…

Living on Less.....WEIGHT, Part 1

It's not just about the money. Living on Less can also mean having less "stuff" cluttering up our homes, less stress and drama, and dragging around a whole lot less weight. 
The topic of the day... What are YOU "Weighting" for?
I think I've always had a weight problem. I was active enough as a teen and young adult to keep the pounds in range. But when I started having kids, I put on weight with each one. In 2001, and 230 lbs., I'd finally had enough and opted for Gastric Bypass Surgery so I would never have to think about being fat ever again and yes, I'm using the word FAT. I like to eat though, and only ended up losing a total of 35 lbs. with gastric bypass. Don't get me wrong, if you do it right, you MIGHT not have the same results I had, but a little dixie cup size meal was just not enough food for me. I would cry and be angry at every gathering of people and food. Let's just say eating was a big part of my life, so much so that it had int…
