Bread and Miscellany!

Crusty Goodness!

European Peasant Bread
From the Stake Newsletter 

3 cups lukewarm water
tablespoons granulated yeast
tablespoons salt
½ cup rye flour
1 cup wheat flour
5 cups unbleached all-purpose flour Cornmeal for the pizza peel (when you bake)
Mix the yeast and salt with the water in a 5-quart bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients, except cornmeal, without kneading. Mix until all the flour is incorporated into the dough but do not knead the dough.
Cover dough and allow to rise at room temperature until it rises and collapses,  about 2 hours, or chill overnight.  Dust the surface of the dough with flour and cut off a 1-pound piece (grapefruit size). Dust with more flour and shape into a ball. Allow to rest on a cornmealcovered pizza peel for 40 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees with a baking stone placed on the middle rack.  Place an empty broiler tray on a different rack with 1 cup hot water inside.

Sprinkle the loaf with flour and using aserrated knife, slash with a lines pattern on the top of the bread. Slide the loaf directly onto the hot stone. Bake for about 35 minutes or until the top is deeply brown and very firm.
Cool bread before eating. Enjoy!
Visiting Teaching Message...
Do we befriend our sisters and "lift them to the higher road?"
March..."Activation "
Our prophet, President Thomas S. Monson, has encouraged us to “reach out to rescue those who need our help and lift them to the higher road and the better way. … It is the Lord’s work, and when we are on the Lord’s errand, … we are entitled to the Lord’s help.”
Stake Communication Demonstration
By Scott and Kristine Oldroyd...Stake Preparedness Leaders
The Stake is having a preparedness communications demonstration on March 9th from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m at the Stake Center, room 20.  We'll cover different emergency communication methods and their pros and cons.  This will help us prepare for our next Stake Communications Drill on Sat. April 6th between General Conference sessions.  We would like to be able to use these different radios during this next drill.  Anyone and everyone is invited, but there is a special invitation for the block captains from each ward to attend to learn these different methods.
The Want Ads...
"Dear Sisters..." is a blog for the sisters of the Highland 12th Ward.  Although it is not to be a forum for promoting a personal business, if you have something to share, or sell, or give you would on a neighborhood bulletin board...try posting it here.  If you have clothes for Trek, or too many zucchinis, or a bicycle to get the drift.  My daughter-in-law gives away or sells things to her neighbors by posting about it on Facebook.  Soooo...let's give it a go!
Christy Kane has a couple of items that she wants to offer for sale to her neighbors before putting an ad on
1. Pearl Drum set...never been used.
2. Two very nice mountain bikes.
Contact Christy at
I have added Kristy's blog to the list on the sidebar...please visit the sisters' blogs when you can.

Thanks for visiting here today, Sisters!
Hippity, Hoppity, Easter's on its Way!
