It’s about that time again. The time when our grandest holiday intentions get pushed aside by a roaring reality. Plans of making fancy homemade cookie and candy platters for neighbors and friends. Plans of wowing teachers with homemade breads and dessert bars. I think we can all agree that nothing is going to slow down for the next two months. Time in a bottle will not be left on our doorstep. What to do about it?
This morning I got a start on my holiday baking during the Twitter #bakingday event. I didn’t get a stellar amount accomplished, but something is better than nothing. And in that something I have 5 mini-loaves of Poppy Seed Dessert Bread that can now be wrapped and frozen for giving. I also have some of these in the freezer, but I know they won’t make it to the holidays!
Today’s Baking Day Accomplishments
- Poppy Seed Dessert Bread
- Wheat Bread
- Hamburger/Hot Dog Buns (with a few healthy adjustments)
- Veggie Chicken Noodle Soup
Right now, while the days are a little less crazy, while the weight of your holiday to-do list hasn’t stripped your holiday cheer, start baking. Works for me!
What are your favorite things to bake for the holidays?
