 ***Oatmeal Bread***  (2 loaves)
 from The More-with-Less Cookbook by Doris Janzen Longacre
 (For those who remember the recipes from "Extending the Table", this is 
 the precursor to that book, and is why the cover of Extending the Table 
 says "in the spirit of More-with-Less".  It was also put out by the 
 Mennonite Central Committee (I'm a Mennonite), but it is not an ethnic 
 cookbook like "Extending..."  I don't know how adaptable it is to VLF, 
 since I don't cook from it's recipes (or any recipes) very often.  Email 
 me if you have any questions.  )
 1 c. 	quick oats		2 c   boiling water
 1/2 c	whole wheat flour	1 pkg. (I scant Tablespoon) yeast
 1/2 c	brown sugar		1/2 c. warm water
 1 T. 	salt			5 c. white flour
 Combine oats, whole wheat flour, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, and 
 pour the boiling water over it.  Stir to combine.
 Meanwhile, dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
 When the oat mixture is lukewarm, add the yeast.  Stir in the white 
 flour, cup by cup.  
 When dough is stiff enough to handle, turn onto floured board and knead 
 5-10 minutes.  Place in greased bowl, cover, and let rise until doubled.  
 Punch down and let rise again.  Shape into 2 loaves and place in greased 
 9x5x3" pans.  Bake at 350 F for 30-40 minutes.  Cool on rack.
