Ok...holidays, birthday parties, and sicknesses(hopefully) are over. Time to get back to things. Although, no promises, I am entering week 7 of my pregnancy and that usually doesn't bring good things. But I'm going to try and plow through it! So today's list of to-do's looks like this:
Thank you's for Jaylee's 1st birthday
Bake breakfast food to freeze
Make shopping list
I'm going to be optimistic and say I can do it all....but we'll have to see how the kids behave ; )
Here's my first task :
Breakfast Muffins - Cranberry Applesauce
1 Cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 cups flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, chopped
1/2 cup pecans, chopped (optional)
not in the recipe, but I added 1 mashed banana
Mix wet ingredients first, then blend dry in. Fold in fruit and nuts. Bake in oven 350 for 25-30 minutes. Makes 12.
Just tried them....YUMMY!!!!
I just wanted to add, this is called using my stockpile because I didn't have to go shopping for any of this stuff. I, of coarse, keep baking ingredients, but the cranberries were .99 from Aldi's during Christmas time. I froze a few bags of those. The banana was one that got a little past "good enough to eat" so I froze that. And the applesauce was one of many jars I got for nearly free from Meijer one week. I love that I don't have to shop every time I want to make something!
