Servants

Proverbs 31:15 She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls. (NIV)

I don't have any servant girls (unless you count my two daughters!) but I do have servants that work for me and they are humming along right now. Who are they? My washer, dryer and bread machine. There are other servants that I use quite regularly also: my dishwasher, vacuum, and crockpot among others. Without these wonderful servants I know my day would be much longer and harder and I'm thankful that the Lord has provided these to help me serve my family better.

Right now I'm making pizza dough in the bread machine. Homemade pizzas are always a hit around here. Here's the recipe I use to make the dough:

1 1/2 cups plus 4T water
1 1/2 t salt
4 T olive oil
5 C flour
4 t sugar
4 t yeast

Place ingredients in bread machine pan and add to machine; start on dough cycle. When complete (mine takes about 1.5 hours), take out dough and divide. Use 12" pizza pan or cookie sheet. Shape and let sit 10 minutes. Add sauce and toppings. Bake at 400* for 15-20 minutes.

Enjoy!!
