For the past several days no newsletter was posted online. We have had stormy weather in Lubbock and during stormy weather I do not turn on my computer. We were suppose to have hail, wind and lots of rain. So far we have had clouds, thunder and a couple of sprinkles of rain. Most of the bad weather was north, south and east of Lubbock on Friday and Saturday.) We need rain but I don't like the severe weather that usually comes with it. On Tuesday we did have a lot of rain. Rains often flood the streets until the water can drain off.

On Tuesday I was going down the Loop when I realized there were a lot of crazy people out there. I saw 7 accidents that created more accidents that day. Trying to get from one side of Lubbock to the other side of Lubbock using the Loop took over 45 minutes. (Normally it takes less than 10 minutes.) It seemed like everywhere there was an accident more people ran into the already wrecked vehicles. I even saw on Police car wiped out by other cars. If the speed limit on the Loop is 65 that does not mean that in heavy rain to go at least 65 mph and many even exceed the speed limit.

The kitties do not handle stormy weather well. Ditto is deaf and he doesn't hear the thunder. Little One usually decides Ditto is his best friend during storms. He sleeps as close to Ditto as physically possible. If I am in the house they are both close to me as possible. Ditto sleeps through all the storm like nothing is going on while Little One shakes all over every time he hears the thunder.

Is everyone familiar with GemWraps? They are wraps that are mostly fruits and vegetables using nothing artificial instead of tortillas, etc. I just discovered them and tried the recipe on the package.

Caprese Salad Sandwich Wrap Recipe

Layer in the wrap:
Baby Greens
Fresh Basil
Fresh Tomato
Basil Pesto
Mozzarella Cheese
Balsamic Glaze ( I substituted)
Wrap, brush edge with water. Let sit 2 min. Enjoy!

These can be heated in the microwave for 15 - 30 seconds. I used the Tomato flavor wraps but there are other flavors. There is no sugar. 25 calories each vs.75 bread and 145 flour tortilla. I purchased mine on Amazon.

Nancy, I was going through recipes and came across the Easy Overnight No Knead Yeast Bread and Baked Sweet Potato Fries thinking the members might enjoy these to recipes.

Easy Overnight No Knead Yeast Bread Recipe

3 cups flour I use all purpose flour but they recommend unbleached white flour, for whole wheat flour freshly ground hard white wheat make the bread healthier
1 3/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon active rise yeast
1-1/2 cups water

Combine flour, salt and yeast in a large bowl and stir to combine. Add water and mix well. The dough will be hard to stir and shaggy, not smooth like traditional bread dough. Cover with a towel and let rise overnight, 8 to 18 hours. The dough will bubble and rise. When you're ready to make bread, flour your hands and your working surface and turn the dough out. Without kneading the dough, gently form it into a ball. Cover with a towel and allow to rest for one hour. After the dough has risen for 30 minutes, preheat the oven to 450 degrees and put your Dutch oven or oven safe pot, that has a lid, inside to preheat. Do not put the lid in the oven. Preheat for 30 minutes.When the dough has rested for an hour, and the pot has preheated, remove the pot from the oven. Carefully lift the dough from the surface and place into the pot. If your pot is stainless steel and not lined, you can line it with parchment paper first. Replace the lid and place the pot back in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes with the lid on. Remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes, or until the top is golden medium brown. Allow to cool completely, at least 30 minutes in a spot where air can flow freely above and below.

Everyone have a great day. Nancy and 4 legged associates take care, stay safe and comfortable.

Heat grill or frying pan over medium-high heat. In a small bowl, whisk milk, eggs, salt and vanilla. Pour into a flat dish that is large enough to dip bread slices in.

Cook until bottom is browned, then flip and cook through until toast is slightly firm and no longer wet. Serve immediately.
