Cheddar Chili Bread Twist

These are really good! It looks like a lot of steps but it's really does go fast. And it makes a ton! I have half the dough in my freezer.




* 1-1/4 cups buttermilk ( I forgot this so I just used whole milk and a teaspoon of vinegar)
* 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
* 2 tablespoons sugar
* 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
* 1/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
* 2 eggs
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 5-1/4 to 5-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
*

TOPPING:
* 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
* 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies, drained
* Grated Parmesan cheese

Directions

* In a large saucepan, heat the buttermilk and cheese over low heat, stirring until cheese is melted (mixture will appear curdled). Cool to 110° to 115°. In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water. Add the buttermilk mixture, eggs, salt and 3 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
* Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Meanwhile, for topping, combine cheddar cheese and chilies; set aside.
* Punch dough down; turn onto a lightly floured surface and divide in half. Roll each portion into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spray one half with cooking spray. Top with cheese mixture and remaining dough.
* Cut into twelve 1-1/2-in. strips. Cut each strip in half and twist. Place 1 in. apart on greased foil-lined baking sheets. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
* Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks. Serve warm. Refrigerate any leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.

Pumpkin Patch

We have beautiful weather here, don't get me wrong. I wish when we went to the pumpkin patch we had to wear pants or something. I read all these blogs where they go out in their Fall attire and pick out a pumpkin and come home and light a fire and carve it up. Not here, in Texas. When we came home I debated turning on the AC. Anyways, today was a fun day even if we had to come home and put on shorts.








Now coming home and craving that little sucker up was fun. Our favorite part!

Soccer Star

Kendall started playing soccer and it is just the cutest thing. Most of the kids played last year so they know what they are doing but Ken got in there and did a great job.

Enough practicing they wanted to play on the monkey bars.
