Tripped across this in my email today. A list of goals/dreams I had put together a little over a year ago at the urging of a friend. Not really any closer to any of them than I was then, which makes me feel kinda lame, but I think they are all still on ‘the list’.
– have a gallery show my photography
– leave the insurance world behind because my photography and writing have become so lucrative
– find Mr. Right
– have a family of my own (this one is starting to smolder a bit – not sure I want to be raising kids into my 60s)
– write a book of essays and have them published
– lose 40 pounds
– f*ck fear
– paint the bathroom
– work less
– write more
– waste less time
– road trip around the country
– dream bigger
– live more authentically
I’ve experienced somewhat of a shift in my faith the past several months. Again. And likely (hopefully) not the last. Difficult to articulate, it has something to do with a desire to ‘be’ or ‘do’ the gospel, as opposed to hearing a different spin on the gospel. There’s more to it than that, but that’s what I know today.
Posting our HFASS communion bread recipe here for future reference.
Sift dry ingredients together three times:
2 c whole wheat flour
1 c white flour
1 & 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 & 1/4 tsp salt
Stir in 4 tsp oil. Set aside.
Mix wet ingredients together until dissolved:
3/4 cup + 2 Tbsp very hot water
3 Tbsp honey
3 Tbsp molasses
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Dough should be slightly sticky. Do not knead.
Divide into four balls and flatten each into a 1/4 inch thick disk.
With a knife, score the top of each loaf into eight pie-shaped sections, so that the sections can be more easily broken off while serving. Alternatively, you could score a cross onto the loaf.
Lay the loaves on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the loaves with oil. Bake an additional 5-8 minutes. Let cool.
