Thursdays: From Scratch

This week I took on a challenge from Sarah over at to make as many things from scratch as I am able and then post about my progress every Thursday.  For the first time ever this week I made homemade whole wheat hamburger buns.  My family liked them so much that I made them 3 times this week.  I also made whole wheat buttery pan rolls (with the little bit of butter I had left), whole wheat tortillas, and navy bean and ham soup.  My sewing machine was also brought out this week.  I decided that it would be a fun thing to make aprons for all of my children.  The only apron that I was able to finish this week was for my oldest daughter.  I used material that I had left over from the curtains that I made for the girls room several years ago.  I am still planning on stitching on her name.  This is my favorite material.   Lastly, I am learning how to patch jeans.

It sounds like you've had a successful week of making things from scratch! Your whole wheat rolls sound delicious and your daughter's apron is adorable. I love making bread and sewing.

I look forward to stopping in often and getting to know you better. :)
