It’s been a while August 19, 2009

I haven’t posted in a long time. Things have been crazy here. It’s never a dull moment that’s for sure.  Sam and I were having some issues in our marriage and we are trying to work them out. It’s a long hard road, but I hope that I am making the right choice.

The kids are growing so fast. I can’t believe how fast. Makes you realize that faster they grow, the older I get.  For me that’s has been the hardest part of it all.

It’s a new school year, and things are finally starting to slow down. I thought it would be a great time to get back to posting about my favorite thing.. Cooking. I have some recipes that I that I want to share with all of you.


Well it’s off and running…. October 14, 2008

I am excited to announce that Sam & Ozzy’s Lunch box is off and running. It’s a scary thing when you try to make your dreams come off the ground, when you have everything riding on it. Good thing I have faith… that all will work out. I got Jack & Jill ( our local small town grocery store) to place our take out menu in all the shoppers grocery bags, and I have to say my ears have been ringing all night. So I know there is some talk going on LOL. Which is a good thing. I want people talking. 300 menu’s went out through the grocery store, and that doesn’t count the ones that I took the schools, the bank, the city office, and other places.

I am prepped and stocked, bring on tomorrow, I am ready.

  • 2 cups rye flour
  • 1 1/2 cups room temperature beer
  • 2 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 tablespoon caraway seed (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon cornmeal



  1. Combine rye flour, beer, and yeast in a large bowl. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Set out overnight. Do not refrigerate.
  2. The next day, add sugar, salt, shortening, and egg; beat with mixer until smooth. Stir in caraway seeds, if wanted. Add enough white bread flour to make a soft dough.
  3. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth, approximately 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, and turn to oil the surface of the dough. Let rise in warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled.
  4. Punch down dough, and divide in half. Shape into round or oblong loaves, and place on greased baking sheets sprinkled with corn meal. Let rise for 30 minutes.
