301  Red lentil bread in Recipes and Cooking Tips by Belladune on: December 29, 2010 12:35:07 PM

1/2 cup red lentils
1 cup water
~In a large pot, cook the red lentils for about 30 minutes.

4cups of lukewarm water
4 tblsp sugar
1/4 cup oil
2 tblsp active dry yeast
approximately 12 cups flour (this can be a mixture of whole wheat and unbleached all purpose if you so wish)

Combine water oil sugar and yeast and allow to proof for 10 minutes. Cup by cup, add the flour. Start off with a whisk, Before it becomes to thick to whisk, add the cooked lentils. Once it becomes to thick to whisk dive in with both hands until well combined. Don't use all the flour at once. Once you get a semi wet dough turn it out on to the counter (lightly dusted with flour) and begin to knead. Knead like you've never kned before. for at least 10 minutes, but I recommend longer. Once yo've done this, put the dough back in your bowl and allow to rise for 2 hours. Don't rush the rise!!! this will give you nice fluffy bread!
Now it's time to punch it down and shape into loaves. Preheat your oven to 400`F. What I find works best is to cut the dough into approximately even pieces and flatten into rectangles. Then I roll the rectangles into loaves. Place into your bread pans and let rise again for at least 30 minutes. I generally forget about it and end up letting it rise for 45 minutes to an hour.  So long as the bread is at least doubled in size you are safe to put it into your oven. Bake it for 25 minutes.
Pull it out of the oven, enjoy the smell of fresh bread but wait at least 20 minutes before you cut into it. Slather it with butter and enjoy!

For more pics check out the blog, but all the info on how to make the bread is here in words. Smiley

Details of swap:
This swap is for us Canadians!  The idea sprouted from the American 44cent swap (thanks lovesclutter for that bit of brilliance!).  This is our take on it!  Send 1 envelope, within country, Filled with crafted items, supplies, bits bobs, and any other crafty goodies you can possibly think of!  The only parameters I am setting are this:
[/b] at least one item must be crafted and Your envelope must be NO BIGGER THEN  245mmx156mm (standard letter) OR 235mmx120mm (card)
This Round is the Winter edition!  So, Whether you just dig snow men, or snow or skating or things like that, or Love Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanzaa or other winter holidays I’m missing here, This swap is for you!

I am allowing stuffing of that envelope until it could possibly burst (though I wouldn’t recommend that. Could you imagine the havoc craft supplies could reek on the machines at the post office?!  And how tragic would that be for your partner, never mind the post office!)  I also don’t recommend overstuffing if you wish your package to not go as a parcel, which would cause a longer shipping time and cost you upwards of 13$+. 

I reserve the right as organizer to refuse anyone that has a long history of late sending, or poor communication. This is an easy swap, and you have 2.5 weeks to stuff a little envelope!.
I also ask that you post in the thread at least once after partners are assigned. 
I am accepting first time swappers!
Please PM me and your partner when you have shipped, and when you have received!  This will eliminate confusion and frustration!  Communication is key to a great swap!!
Please Label your PMs with:
CSES Winter edition- Sign up
CSESWinter edition- sent
CSES Winter Edition- recieved
CSES Winter edition- question
This will help me with organization.

309  Theodore, of Alvin and the chipmunks in Halloween Costumes by Belladune on: November 03, 2010 05:10:14 PM
My 2 year old LOVES Theodore.  So for Halloween I made him a Theodore outfit! It included a crochet toque with ears and an over sized green fleece turtleneck sweater.  The under suit for the fur was an old dance costume.
Close up of the toque. 

The whole thing:

he was sooo cute Cheesy
Oh and there were mitts to, but he didn't need to wear those.
