Phoebe got me excited last week when she mentioned doing a bulk baking day today. You know how I feel about making a mess in my kitchen – I’m all for it! Lots of Twitter friends rallied, and there was a whole lotta bakin’ goin’ on around the blogosphere today. We even had our own #bakingday hashtag to keep track of each others progress. It’s more fun to bake with friends!
My day wasn’t quite as productive as I’d like (isn’t that always how it goes?) but I’m gearing up to finish some things tomorrow. Here’s what I did accomplish.
1. A double batch of Lazy Granola. Handy to have for quick breakfasts, and I plan to turn some of it into granola bars tomorrow.
3. Homemade Playdough. Not exactly on my list, but I’m so glad I took the time to do this for my little people before getting too busy with other things. They were entertained for more than 2 hours with playdough!
4. Mom’s Cinnamon Rolls. I like the Big Batch Cinnamon Rolls for feeding a crowd, but these… these are the best. Want the recipe? Come back in a few days.
5. Phoebe’s 100% Whole Wheat Bread. I’ve never used this recipe, mainly because up until now I’ve never had vital wheat gluten in my fridge. Haven’t cut into a loaf yet, but it sure looks (and smells) good!
And that’s it for the day. Tomorrow I’ll tackle some quick breads and muffins… I hope! Anyone want to join me?
