    Hey Dads ive got 2 questions…

    Hey Dads,
    My wife is an STNA and is going to school to become an LPN while being pregors with our 1st shes i believe 13weeks tomorrow…. how do i deal with the stress of her coming home in a bad moon cuz hormones and stress from school?

    Hey Dads,
    My inlaws hate me and never liked me although i love their daughter more than theyll ever know and think im not good enough for her because im not rich… and my wife is adopted by them and i just recently defended them against her birth parents who lost her in the first place for whatever reason when she was 6months old. I guess what im trying to ask is what do i do to get her parents to like me or atleast appreciate that i love their daughter and reconize it? Because ive tried everything to get on their good side but every time i try i dig myself a deeper hole.

  • Homemade Garlic Bread Recipe

    Ingredients for the Bread:
    2 cups of Bread Flour
    1 tsp Garlic Salt
    1 cup warm water
    1/2 tbsp instant yeast
    ⁃ I use fleischmanns active dry yeast
    1/2 tbsp sugar
    1tbsp Olive Oil
    Italian Seasoning
    ⁃ good quality extra virgin

    Ingredients for the Garlic Butter:
    1/2 cup unsalted stick butter
    4-5 Cloves of Garlic – chopped

    The Bread:
    1. Mix the yeast and sugar in a bowl or measuring cup, then add the warm water and mix it (I use a whisk). Let sit for 5 minutes.
    2. Mix the 2 cups of bread flour and garlic salt in a medium size bowl, then add the yeast mixture and knead it with your hands until it’s slightly tacky, (I usually flour my hands and mixing spoon first). You don’t want too add too much flour.
    3. Then in a large bowl add the oil and swirl it around to coat the inside of the bowl, (using a paper towel makes this easier), and add the dough mixture turn it over a couple times so it’s slightly oiled.
    4. Cover the bowl with a dish towel and place in a warm area. (I usually turn my oven on to the lowest temp for 5 minutes just so the oven is barely warm, then turn it off (you don’t want it to go above 90 degrees)
    5. Once the dough has doubled (usually 20-25 minutes, you can wait up to an hour, depending on how fluffy or airy you want the bread) punch it down and form into a long thin loaf.
    6. Take a cookie sheet, lightly oil and sprinkle with corn meal, place the loaf on the pan and slice diagonally 3-4 times just barely cutting the surface ( you don’t want to go too deep) and Place back in warm oven until it’s doubled again (another 20 -40 minutes or so).
    7. Remove the bread and turn the oven on to 375 (I usually go to 380) once pre-heated, place the bread in the oven and bake for 20 minutes. Remove and let it cool till it’s slightly warm.
    8. In the mean time I take 1/2 cup of butter and sauté it with garlic (diced up) for a couple minutes. Once it’s sauted and the garlic has released the flavor I strain it so I have pure homemade garlic butter and add some Italian seasoning to the butter.
    9. Once the bread is cooked to slightly warm, I slice it into 3/4 pieces leaving the bottom of the bread intact, Don’t slice it into pieces.
    10. I then Brush the bread with the garlic butter making sure to get it in between the slices on each side, you want to coat it pretty good otherwise the bread will be dry.
    11. I then turn the oven up to 400 and loosely wrap the bread in foil and bake for another 10-15 minutes. The crust should be golden brown and the center should be soft and garlic buttery.
    12. Serve Immediately and enjoy!
