"Thyme" For June Visiting Teaching!

For our ladies this month, it's all about thyme.

I found these cute pots a couple months ago in Target's $1 Spot and last night I planted some little thyme plants in each one. Then I found a recipe for Summer Thyme Bread (that calls for minced fresh thyme) on and made a little recipe card to attach to the pot with twine.

Summer Thyme Bread

1/4 cup egg substitute
3/4 cup water
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon lime juice
3 cups bread flour
1/2 cup instant mashed potato flakes
1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon active dry yeast

Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order above. Select Dough cycle; press Start. At end of cycle, remove dough onto a floured board, shape into a ball, cover and let rest for 15 minutes. Shape into a loaf, place in a lightly greased 9x5 inch loaf pan, and let rise, covered, for 45 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Slash top of loaf with a sharp knife or razor blade. Sprinkle a bit of flour on top. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes, or until loaf is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped. Remove loaf onto a wire rack and let cool.

I have them all ready for next week, sitting on my kitchen window sill and they smell so yummy!!

Happy Thursday...I'm off on a field trip with Anna's class...

I'll say it again--will you be my visiting teacher?

Can I just say: "I miss you being my VT" I don't even get visited anymore :-(. Then again, most of the women in the branch don't do their visiting teaching.
