Sportacus flipped his way down the streets of LazyTown. The children were in school, so he had some free time on his hands. The empty streets were a bit lonely, with all the people going about their daily tasks. Still, it was a good time to get some practice in and LazyTown was becoming more and more beautiful, now that all the citizens were taking better care of her. There were flowers in window sills and everything was shiny and clean. Flipping through the shopping district, because even heroes like to window shop, Sportacus saw Robbie Rotten, sitting alone on a bench.

6 cups white bread flour

Now, begin to add the rest of the flour, one cup at a time, keeping mixer on low speed.

When dough pulls from the sides of the bowl remove it from the mixer to a floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth.

Place in greased bowl, turn to grease the top, cover and allow to rise for 1 1/2 hours.
Punch down and form into two loaves. Place in greased loaf pans and grease tops.
Cover, and allow to rise for 45 minutes.

Preheat oven to 400F. Bake for 30 minutes, covering tops with foil if they brown too fast.

Remove loaves from oven and brush with melted butter.
Allow to cool in pans for 10 minutes.

Turn out and cool completely on a rack. Cover the loaves if you want soft cru
1/2 cup melted butter
a pinch of salt
1 tbsp vinegar
3/4 cup honey
3/4 cup sugar
3 tbsps whole milk or cream
1 tbsp flour
2 tbsps cornmeal
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
5 eggs
1 frozen deep dish pie crust

Mix the first nine ingredients, then whisk in the eggs. Place the pie crust on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper. Pour the filling into the pie crust and place in a pre-heated 350 degree oven. Bake ten minutes, then line the edges with foil or cover with a liner. Bake twenty minutes, then cover the entire top with foil. Bake another twenty-five minutes. Remove from oven and let set about ten minutes or so, before serving. Note: You might dome the foil a bit and spray it with cooking spray, when you cover the entire top, because the filling will raise up a bit, until it has rested.

32 ounces of chicken stock or broth

Turn burner down to lowest setting. Add one half cup of the chicken broth, stirring constantly, then add spices. Add the rest of the broth in a bit at a time, stirring or whisking constantly for smoothness. Add the tomato sauce and stir. Turn heat back up to medium and heat to slightly above desired eating temperature. Add half and half and remove from heat.
Author's note: I've decided Protecting the Nest canon diverges after Avengers, mainly because I refuse to have Frigga dead. This is chapter nine.
