Oatmeal Wheat Bread

This is a homemade healthy everyday bread. It is a basic recipe I found after researching and making changes to suit my own. It came out very well, soft and airy. I wanted to bake a bread as it was long since I baked one at home. I wanted to try something which I had never baked earlier. This recipe is a keeper. No doubt, it is healthy with the wheat flour and oatmeal.

Ingredients
Old-Fashioned oats - 1 cup
Whole Wheat flour - 2 cups
Bread flour/unbleached all-purpose flour - 1 cup
Buttermilk - 3/4 cup
Water - 1/4 cup
Butter - 3 tablespoons
Sugar - 3 tablespoons
Active Dry Yeast - 3 teaspoons
Oats - 2 teaspoons for topping
Directions

Take about 1/4 cup of lukewarm water and add the sugar and yeast and stir till they dissolve. The water should be lukewarm for the yeast to work best. It should not be too hot as it might kill the yeast! Set it aside until it gets frothy.
Cook the oats with water until creamy. It should be in a thick consistency and not soupy. Cool the mixture. To the oats mixture, add the buttermilk, butter, bread flour and whole wheat flour. Finally add the frothy yeast-sugar mixture.
Knead well to get an elastic dough. The dough should be smooth. Grease the surface with oil and place in a bowl covered with a towel. Allow the dough to rise for about one hour till doubled.
Punch down the dough and knead it slightly. Take care not to knead too much as it releases all the air in the pockets. Shape the dough into a loaf and transfer it to a greased loaf pan.
Make two or three slits on the top of the loaf for the air to escape. Brush with a little milk and sprinkle the oats on top.
Bake in a preheated oven at 375 degree F for about 40 minutes until a skewer inserted comes out clean.
Allow it to cool a bit and remove carefully from the loaf pan and cool in a wire rack.
Serve with warm butter!

    情趣用品對一般人來說充滿神秘動人的吸引力,許多人想一窺情趣用品究竟,卻又不敢太過接近,因為這個領域充斥著謠言與標籤、讓許多人深怕一碰及就會讓別人投射以異樣的眼光看待。

    如果大家稍微留意一下,不難可以發現一些事,大多人在逛街時對每一間情趣用品店的櫥窗都會向內張望後姍姍離去,有一些人卻是假裝目不斜視的走過。畢竟台灣人的觀念並沒有像國外一樣的開放,所以還無法很公開與光明正大的踏進情趣用品去選購一些情趣用品
     
    利用網路購物的方式去選購情趣用品是相當方便的一件事情,可以從網頁上獲得商品的詳細介紹而不必害羞的去詢問店員商品的使用方法,並且在商品的介紹上面也不亞於從店員那獲得的資訊,有些甚至還更詳細一些。
     
    在台灣有許多情趣用品訂購網站,從以前只有少樣的情趣用品到今日數百種的情趣用品看來,這種促進閨房之樂的東西已經漸漸地為人們所接受與喜愛。

    但以目前的市場來說,絕大部分的情趣用品網站皆以銷售台灣、大陸製造的情趣用品居多。原因很簡單:成本低廉,卻也因此犧牲了品質和安全性!情趣用品是直接與自己和最親密的另一半的身體接觸,為了節省一點點的金錢而選擇品質粗糙的廉價黑心情趣用品,實為相當不智的選擇。
