Winding down for my Monday.
I’ve been busy baking over last few days
and taking a break from baking.
Do you bake from scratch?
I’ve made bread for most of the week, with the addition of
cinnamon rolls and banana bread.
I make mistakes to learn from as I go and not too many flops so far.
A couple of mistakes I made this week:
1. Making banana bread and forgetting the sugar. And yes
I had to make a new loaf although the bananas did sweeten it quite a bit.
Just have to laugh at myself for doing this.
2. Second mistake was being really tired and putting the last loaf
of bread in frig to let finish rising in the morning.
Oh it rose fine and tasted just as good as my other loaves but looks
pretty goofy on top.
Do you bake from scratch a lot more these days?
With the price of everything going higher and higher it’s still
less expensive to make everything I can myself.
And it can be delicious too. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
If your not already baking from scratch, go for it and have fun.
I usually purchase huge bags of flour among other things when I can and stay
What doesn’t come in a can or I don’t store sealed in buckets I put in mylar bags with oxygen absorbers.
I discovered a company, Wallaby that has the best customer service.
I especially like that each purchase comes with oxygen absorbers in small packets.
I don’t have to worry so much about a large package of oxygen absorbers
being exposed to oxygen.
Once I open the packet and use one I seal the rest right up in a canning jar.
I currently use the gallon size I seal with my iron and do want to try
the ziploc ones as well in the future.
Being on a limited income the mylar bags don’t break the bank either.
And that’s a good reason to smile.
I hope your doing well, staying prepared but at peace.
