This recipe should be good for 5 loaves of Cinnamon bread.
Cube 2 lg idaho potatoes and boil in 3c water until they crumble
Separate and mash the potatoes keeping the water for later

In a separate bowl Mix 1 yeast packet with 1/4c warm water add 1 tsp sugar... set aside

In an XL bowl combine
2/3c sugar
1tsp salt
10 1/2 Tablespoons (2/3c veg shortening or margarine)
potato water and warm mashed potatoes, mix with a whisk
ADD 1-2c flour until mixture is room temperature.
(if the mixture is too hot the eggs will cook and the heat will kill the yeast)

add 2 lg eggs and yeast
Mix carefully (folding with a spatula works best)
Gradually add 4 - 5c flour being very careful not to mix too hard
Cover a countertop with flour and knead dough until barely sticky
Grease an XL bowl to set the dough in and let rise in the fridge overnight
In the morning take it out and let sit for an hr

Portion enough to make a rectangle about 18” x 8”
Cover the dough with melted butter or margarine

Add Cinnamon & sugar mixture

Cut into 3rds

Roll into tubes 

Braid the 3 tubes

Place the Bread in a greased pan

Proof the bread for 30 minutes or let it rise for an hr
Bake at 375 for 30 – 45 minutes, until the tops are brown and the sides look tan.  Different ovens may vary.

Paint the tops with melted butter / margarine

Still on Tour

We're in Canada... things have been good, just super busy... Europe was a little intense... I was sick the whole time with a cough I couldn't get rid of... Im master cleansing again right now, and Im about a week into it. I want to do it for another week, but we will see how it goes being on tour. It's definitely harder, but its going pretty well. Im still in that school online, and thats been good too. I've got a lot of reading to do in the next week to study for the final exam, and Im a little nervous about that, but hopefully I'll do ok... The next class Im taking is holistic nutrition and that starts mid August.

There's only one more show in Canada after today and then we get back to the US on tour with Staind for the rest of the summer. Here's our dates through August.

Hellooooo San Franciscooooo!

Ive been here for about a week so far, and its been beautiful!  I spent Easter with LeAnne's family, then on Monday got my back tattooed for about 2 1/2 hrs.  Im still a bit sore, but cant wait to get another sitting in!  Tim leaves next week for Europe so Im just crossing my fingers that he can squeeze me in again before he leaves.  

My flight for the next tour is being booked and that starts May 1st in Alabama and we have all new merch ready to go! Im super stoked!

heres a pic of my back...
