{Birthday, Cakes and Bread}


This sweet sweet granddaughter just celebrated her 9th birthday. I know y'all, seems my tribe has a birthday every month and well, we just about do! 


Kyleigh brings our family so much joy. She has the sweetest and most loving personality ever.  This child never meets a stranger and loves with her whole heart.   



Our family celebrated her birthday with a little party but then she got to spend the day  at the beach with her cousin.


Oh the days of bikinis and eating what you wanted too................


I took a day to bake cakes to freeze for upcoming birthdays and well, maybe a Sunday dinner. Yep, we have another family birthday coming up this month. 


I love baking fresh bread and haven't baked any in a while so decided on a loaf of fresh rosemary bread. Gathered some rosemary from my herbs and whipped up a loaf.


The worst part is waiting on it to rise. But I was painting a new pump house my husband built so the time went by pretty quick.


And, that fresh rosemary bread was a lovely addition to my meal. 


Speaking of bread, my oldest granddaughter just sent me a picture of her bread she has rising. Will let y'all know how it turns out. 




I hope that you all have a great week and remember....


Hugs and blessings, Cindy

    Glad to see that there isn't a flour shortage in your area. I can't wait to see what you do with the birthday cakes!

    1. There was a short time that flour was hard to find and no yeast. But I had plenty of flour anyway and my daughter and sister found me some yeast so I am good to go unless I get CRAZY baking! LOL!

  7. Big birthday wishes to your sweet granddaughter. We celebrated my granddaughter's 10th birthday yesterday with a parade of cars all decorated with balloons and signs and the fire department vehicles lead the parade for her. It was so cute and fun since we still cannot be together. Glad she could see her friends even if they were in their cars. Have a great week. Oh to lay on the beach with a snickers bar and be able to wear a bikini!!!!

    1. What a fun birthday for your grandgirl. We had a party Friday afternoon with pizza, cupcakes and ice cream and then she had over a few friends for a movie night, popcorn and candy. Of course then she got to enjoy a beach trip the next day. Girl yes....those days in bikini are long gone! LOL!

  9. Oh how sweet! Happy Birthday to Kyleigh! She is adorable! And I love those pretty cakes you are baking and freezing! What a great idea! That bread sounds SO good. I could eat the whole loaf...probably why I shouldn't bake it!! Love the tree at the end...are those orange honeysuckle flowers (or whatever that vine is that grows up into the trees)? Looks so pretty. Have a blessed and beautiful week!

  10. Hi Cindy! Oh, your little granddaughter is so sweet and looks like a little doll. Happy birthday to her! How nice you are able to be with her. Your bread sounds delish! I can't find any yeast at the grocery stores so I've been making beer bread. I've never drank beer in my life but that beer bread sure is tasty! Thanks for popping in to see me. Stay safe, my friend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia :)

    1. There was no yeast to be found here for a while. But my oldest daughter finally found some and bought me some and then my sister bought me some. Now it's back on the shelf. Guess I best get to baking bread more now! LOL!
