I decided that we'd stay put today. We've been out and about for the past two weeks--out of the house for some reason or another. I needed to catch up on all kinds of things and focused on baking this morning.
We made some apple-cinnamon muffins--YUM!
The break maker has helped me get a loaf baked--just put another in.
Then, I made some pop-overs that Debbie shared on her blog, The Loving Path. I substituted some vegetarian protein slices in place of the meat. My children were hesitant to try them...but once they did they found them rather tasty!! My sweetie-pie said, "It tastes like macaroni and cheese!" And they do, a bit. We ate them with baby carrots and apple slices. What a nice lunch. (Thanks Debbie, for sharing that recipe).
So, I think we're set...for another day. I wanted to make some more granola bars, but I'm pooped right now. Perhaps later this afternoon. (I've been de-cluttering the kitchen and bathing children between all this!) When I think about all the work those who lived years ago had to do to put a meal on the table, I'm amazed. There is definitely great rewards in being able to make your food but it does time a lot of time. I'm glad we took that time today!
So what's cooking in your kitchen today?
