Happy Zeb!

Just cut off the end of an old pen and cut off the end of the feather and insert the pen into the feather. Zeb is so sweet and giving he ended up giving the pen to his Mom:) I have such wonderful blessings for Children!

Afterward, I needed something for a pen stand or holder and I took an old supplement bottle and used and awl to drive a hole into the lid and now I have a really cool pen holder.

Whole Wheat Pie Crust

Whole wheat pie crust is yummy! Its good with hearty meals when you are using the dark whole wheat (red) and when you use the white whole wheat then you can use it with pastries and such. Or if you wanted you could even experiment (like I do) with a little of both. Here it is plain and simple I hope you enjoy! If you bookmark it you can have it on hand. God Bless!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees

Directions and Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups of sifted whole wheat flour
2 tsp. of honey
1/2 tsp. of sea salt
1/2 cup of butter or margarine cut in till pieces are small pea sized
Sprinkle in 4 to 5 tbls. cold water or milk one at a time ( I put a couple of ice cubes into a cereal bowl full of water ) or more until it holds together.
Make into a ball and lightly flour. Roll out into a circle or two and fold into fourths (like large pie pieces) and place into your pizza pan or pie pans. Bake for about 6 to 7 minutes or follow the directions in your pie recipe. I have this really neat pie pan that has the curvy edges and so I just press my pie crust into my pan instead of rolling it out. But I'm funny like that:)
