For breakfast this morning I made waffles, an easy no fail meal. Sticky sweet syrup and peanut butter. Its a stick-to-your ribs breakfast. Everyone mostly likes waffles in our family except the oldest, but she ate them too.
Earlier in January I bought a box of oranges, 38 pounds of oranges! The kids and Mr. Incredible love oranges. I don’t care for them myself. It was a fantastic deal, $.38 per pound. We finished the oranges up today. Aaah fresh fruit, we will be seriously craving it I’m sure come March.
Lunch was late. I made minestrone soup from our home store. I am sticking to vegetarian meals this week to see how well they are received. My Reese took one look at the soup, saw zucchini and said, “I am not hungry”. My Julz enjoyed it and my little girls each had a bowl. This recipe makes a huge batch, so I have leftovers for tomorrow.
The french bread is a hit. I am starting to incorporate whole grain flour into the recipe. Tonight I added one cup of whole grain flour and four cups of white (organic) flour.
I turned half the dough into a pizza and half of the dough into a loaf of french bread. It turned out wonderful. I love having freeze dried cheese in my home store. The minestrone soup was best with some cheese sprinkled on top and some fresh ground pepper. I make my pizza sauce with just a regular jar of spaghetti sauce. I thicken the sauce with tomato powder, which is wonderful stuff and lasts forever. I love the versatility of the tomato powder from shelf reliance.
