Twenty+ Years and Counting!

Many wonder why I use stainless steel bake ware.  Unlike aluminum, stainless steel is a clean metal to cook with.  Try this little test with your aluminum pan: boil water in your aluminum pan.  Now, use a clean scrub brush and scrub the pan.  Pour the water into a clear glass.  You will notice that the once clear water is now gray.  This gray color is the aluminum in the water! Just think what happens to the food that you have cooked in that pan!!

Stainless steel does not do this!  The other great thing about stainless steel is that it will not rust like your aluminum bake ware will!  This is why my title to this post is 20+ and counting.  Most of my stainless steel bake ware is 20+ years depending on which pan as I bought them over a period of 3 years 20 years ago.  

This particular pic is a 22 year old bread pan!  It still looks as good as the day I bought the pan!  Stainless steel bake ware will be life time pans. These are pans you will pass on to future generations.

New Grains for our Diet!  

Moving forward in the series featuring different grains that you can grind fresh in your grain grinder.  This month's grain featured is: Kamut.

The name "kamut" (pronounced: ka-moo) comes from the ancient Egyptian word for "wheat".  Kamut is a variety of high-protein wheat that has never been hybridized. Kamut's kernels are two to three times the size of most wheat. This grain has a delicious buttery flavor.  You seemingly have already buttered your hot bread! It will be a lot lighter in color so your bread will almost appear to have white flour added to it!

Kamut has 30% higher protein than wheat.  It is richer in magnesium, zinc, and vitamin E.  Kamut contains gluten but many wheat sensitive people eat it without reaction.

This is a grain that you can grind like wheat or spelt to make a regular loaf of bread.  This is a great grain for those with wheat sensitivity.  In fact, you might want to incorporate this grain in your rotation of bread making.   Rotate making batches of bread with these three grains (spelt, wheat, kamut)  This way you can inhibit building allergies to wheat!

3. Shape dough into 6 equal balls of dough and place in greased bread pan.  Let rise till doubled.

Note from Paula:  This bread has a great flavor.  I think the oats added a sweetness to the bread that you will enjoy.  This is an excellent way to add new grains to your diet without having to do a lot of extra work!

Kamut as a cooked cereal!
Add 1 cup kamut to 3 cups boiling water.  Reduce heat to low and simmer for about 2 hours.
Note from Paula:  This is a little chewy so my family didn't enjoy this BUT your family may love the whole grain cereals so I would give it a try!

Tips for the Harried Woman

Do you ever begin to feel lost like you are just another number in the mass of humanity?  Do you think that your mark in time of history is insignificant?  Your life has just become a mundane routine with no impact on the world?  Don't let these false ideas permeate your mind...don't believe those thoughts nor people who might discount your role as a mom and a woman.  We are pulled in so many directions with so many hats to wear that we often succumb to thinking that we have not really done anything great to change the world.  We feel  we have only spun our wheels changing diapers and wiping runny noses.  Again I say, don't believe it! You are part of a mosaic ...a tapestry that God is creating to give the full picture of Christ even in the mundane activities of life.  Remember Jesus' words that when you serve the least...the child, you are serving Him. Rise up women and be counted.

 Encouraging Thoughts:

"Believing prayer ushers in God's peace.  Not a random, nebulous, earthly peace, but His peace.  Imported from heaven.  The same tranquility that marks the throne room, God offers to you...

God enjoys perfect peace because God enjoys perfect power.  And He offers His peace to you.  A peace that will 'guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus' (Philippians 4:7). Paul employs a military metaphor here.  The Philippians, living in a garrison town, were accustomed to the Roman sentries maintaining their watch.  Before any enemy could get inside, he had to pass through the guards.  God gives you the same offer.  His supernatural peace overshadows you....guarding your heart."
