FAMILY BREAD (ENOUGH TO FEED 4 HUNGRY TEENAGERS) Ingredients - Makes 4 Loaves 4 cups warm water (not hot) teenager 1/3 cup sugar or ¼ cup honey
300.00 KES each Peptang pure african honey 500gm Peptang pure african honey 500gm2 packets or 4 teaspoon dry yeast
276.00 KES each ANGEL YEAST WHITE 500G ANGEL YEAST WHITE 500G1 table spoon salt
40.00 KES each Kensalt 1kg Kensalt 1kg1/3 cup melted margarine or oil
150.00 KES each Prestige margarine 500g
545.00 KES each RINA VEGETABLE COOKING OIL 3L12 cups (Approximately) white or whole flour or a combination
119.00 KES each Soko all purpose wheat flour 2kgMethod The first thing you need is a big bowl or clean dish to mix this up in. I use a huge glass bowl. But I used to use the same plastic basin I washed the dishes in. I would wash in with a little bit of bleach, rinse it really well and them dry it completely. In some ways it worked better because it fitted on my lap more conveniently due to the shape. But the glass dish does look more like I know what I am doing. So much for appearances. So anyway mix the water, and sugar in the bowl. Add the yeast, sort of sprinkled on top. Allow the mixture to sit until the yeast dissolves. This will only take a couple of minutes. Add the salt, margarine or oil and the flour. Mix with mwiko until it gets still and then dig in with your hands. When the dough is in a nice cohesive ball, turn it out onto a floured kitchen table or counter. Or you can just live in in the bowl. Now start kneading the dough with all the love you have for your family. Press the dough and send big love vibes into it. Stretch the dough and impress all of your compassion and generosity into it. Remember why you love your kids, and your spouse and your mum or your dad, and just put it all into the dough. Knead it like this for a full ten minutes. Add more flour if you need to as you go along. Coat the dough with oil, about 2 table spoons or it and put into a bowl. Cover it with a towel or plastic wrap and let it set in a warm place to rise for about an hour or so. It should double in bulk. It may take up to two hours on cool days, so be patient. Punch down the dough by literally pressing your fist into the center of it. Divide the dough into 4 equal lumps. Coax them into loaf shapes and place them into large well oiled loaf tines. If you don’t have enough loaf tins, use cake tins or whatever. Cover the dough with a cloth or more plastic wrap and let it rise again. It should take less time to the second rising. When the dough is risen up enough, bake the loaves at 200 degrees for 40 minutes. You can tell the dough is done if you turn it out or the plan and thump the bottom with your fingers. It should make a dull hollow sound. If it doesn’t sound hollow, put it back into the tin and cook it some more.

3 Healthy After-school Snacks It can be so easy for them to grab a bag of chips to snack on in the afternoon but, as research continues to show, simple carbohydrates aren't necessarily your kids' friends. 1. Yogurt Yogurt is an easy, grab-and-go, nutritious snack that most kids find yummy. It's also a great source of calcium and vitamin D, and studies show eating it can boost a body's ability to build strong bones. While it's naturally packed with goodness, pay attention to the yogurt you buy -- avoid ingredients that you can't pronounce, artificial coloring and high-fructose corn syrup. Bring home organic, low-fat or non-fat varieties to keep this snack healthy. Add honey for sweetness, and have fresh fruit and dried fruits on hand for kids to add as toppers. Or whip up a yogurt smoothie that contains your child's favorite 100 percent pure fruit juice and fresh fruit. 2. Peanut Butter Sandwich Peanut butter sandwiches are a long-standing snacking tradition, whether after school or as a Break snack in school. Peanut butter is rich in both protein and fiber, and when you make the sandwich on whole wheat (or another whole-grain bread) you also increase the high-fiber carbohydrates. And that's all good news for kids. Don't spoil little appetites, though. A half a sandwich will go a long way to satisfy after-school snack attacks. 3. Keep washed, snack-sized fruits and veggies on hand in the refrigerator along with dipping options. Use single-serving containers to pre-portion the amount that's served up -- and kids can easily serve themselves this way. And when you're shopping, ask the kids to help choose which fruits and veggies you buy -- if they picked them out, they're more likely to eat them.
