Monday afternoon I spent a fair amount of time in the kitchen. I needed to re-stock my freezer with some pre-baked bakery items. Darrell often uses these as a mid-morning snack and the children and I eat them as breakfast. Darrell typically makes a green smoothie with who knows what thrown in it and also has a hot green tea.
Yesterday was the was the perfect baking day since it was rather chilly outside and the sun didn’t make an appearance. I started off my baking with pumpkin muffins. I had pumpkin leftover from last week's veggie burgers so I wanted to use the rest so it didn't go to waste. I had also purchased a ton of quick sale bananas Sunday so off to the mixing bowl they went. They made a couple batches of banana muffins both normal size and mini muffins. I completed the baking adventure with Coconut Flour Banana Muffins. I linked Heavenly Homemakers recipes since she doesn't use refined sugar and I LOVE that.
Now, to the chopping block… I diced 9 peppers and placed them in bags ready for use. I usually flash freeze these but I towel dried the peppers off and that seemed to work. (Flash freeze in a single layer so they don’t freeze in a large pepper ball. Mine are fine since they weren’t wet going into the bag.)
I also made the No Sugar Added Strawberry Freezer ...
Finally to wrap up my kitchen activities I made a large jar of Ranch Dressing. As you know that’s quick and easy to make!
Excuse the ugly picture below I forgot to take one with my camera before I packed it all up. So I suppose this will have to do...
