Below is the basic recipe, if you need more detail and would like to see some pictures of it, check out the Pantry Eats Blog.
2 Cups warm (not hot) milk (whole or 2%)
2 TB canola oil
1/4 Cup honey
3/4 tsp salt
1 package active dry yeast
2 tsp dough enhancer (optional)
3 Cups whole wheat flour, divided
3/4 to 1 Cup all-purpose flour. (I almost always end up using the full cup).
1. Spray with nonstick cooking spray a 1 quart casserole or souffle dish or other high-sided baking dish. In electric mixer combine milk, oil, honey, salt, yeast, dough enhancer, 1 1/2 cups wheat flour and 1/2 cup all-purpose flour. Mix at medium low speed for 2 minutes.
2. Gradually add remaining wheat flour and 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup all purpose flour. Mix until completely combined. Unlike other bread recipes dough should remain sticky.
3. Transfer to prepared pan and add pan to slow cooker. Cook on high for 3 hours.
Remove from slow cooker and let stand for 5 Minutes before cooling on wire rack.

President Packer warns of dangers to spiritual things. He states “We need to protect our nestlings. In order to do that, we must first acknowledge that Satan, the devil, lives and what his purposes are and what his intentions will be and what our defenses should be."
He reminds us that the adversary is about, his objective to cause injury to the family. 2 Timothy 3:1-7 warns of us of today’s dangers and the patterns to avoid. While 2 Timothy 3:15 gives us the key to our protection.
President Packer added, "Much has been done to prepare the Church and its members to resist the forces of evil. We live in a day of revealed direction. I have been a witness as a General Authority to changes that were revealed from time to time in order that the Lord might better bless and edify His children."
Our homes are the most vulnerable. We need to find safety and security for ourselves and our children by honoring the covenants we have made and being obedient to Christ.

Gardening is a great time to be outdoors with your kids sharing in something that really means something. Few things are as satisfying as a garden and can help you reconnect with nature.
Of course, don't forget, your children should not be learning words while gardening that they cannot repeat at Church.

Chris George and his wife Dani Moore decided to go the entire year of 2009 without heating or air conditioning. The temperature has reached a high of 104 degrees in their home. They often get up in the middle of the night and take cold showers, spray themselves with water before going to bed, and freeze their clothes. They have even turned off their water heater.
The only time they have turned on their thermostat was the weekend they were going to be gone and they did not want the cats to get too hot. (Cat people, goes without saying) They set it at 95 and turned it off as soon as they got home. And I complain when mine is above 78.
Of course, their SRP bill for July was $51.16, a smite lower then mine.
I have always admired the determination of the college aged portion of our population. They know they can save the world, and a lot of them are willing to give their all to try. I know when I was this age we were trying to stop a war and save the trees. We knew we could make a difference. Maybe we did, maybe we didn't, but we tried. This group now is the same, they are going to try to make a difference, maybe they will, maybe they will not...
Are these two frugal or just strange? Take a few minutes and read the article, it can be found here.
