Maybe the older we get the less tolerant we get for uncomfortable weather, I'm not sure but I am much more happier when its cooler out. I can't wait to start baking lots of pies and big family dinners when it cools down. Its also nice to take the kids for a nice walk and look at the leaves changing colors. Such a pretty time of year and I love to admire Gods wonderful work.

1 1/2 cups warm water (between 110 - 120 degrees F)
1 package active dry yeast
4 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon salt
Add the sugar and yeast to the warm water about 10 min until it dissolves
sift flour and add salt, use mixer if you have one and add the dry then wet ingredients and knead until dough forms ball, remove and cover in warm spot for 45 min. Once its risen a little bit take pieces of the dough and form your own long breadsticks, place on a cookie sheet and bake at 400 for about 5 min, take out and brush with butter, garlic powder and salt mixture then place back in oven for another 10 min or until brown.
These were really good. My kids liked them and next time I think I will make Marinara Sauce and top them with cheese...Enjoy

3 pounds Boneless skinless chicken breast cut up into pieces, 1 cup of milk, 1 egg, 2 tbs of pickle juice, yes thats right pickle juice, mix together then marinate for about 3 hours in fridge!
In another ziploc bag put 1 cup of flour, 1/4 cup powdered sugar, tbs salt, and a tbs of pepper. Add the chicken and shake.
I use Canola oil to fry the chicken in, add the chicken but don't over crowd. Fry on each side about 3 min a piece then flip until juices are clear. Drain on a paper towel then serve. We use Ranch to dip and Sweet Baby Rays BBQ sauce. These are so good. I love the copy cat recipe since we can't always get out to the actual restaurants to eat their food. Enjoy :)
