I have instituted today as a baking day, and, hopefully every Friday too. I want to have some baked items in the freezer for mornings when I just don't get it all together before Leiah goes off to school and for snacks.
So today I am making a loaf of sourdough bread, a sourdough pizza crust, apple cinnamon muffins and peanut butter cookies. The last two are new recipes, so we'll see how they do. I will be substituting more healthy ingredients like honey and some whole wheat flour, but I needed a base recipe to work from.
I am also going to focus clean in the kitchen a bit, such as bleaching my sink, wiping out the inside of the fridge, scrubbing some spots on the floor my swiffer will NOT get up, plus hanging out a load of laundry etc. I have a new cleaning plan/daily routine set up as well, which I will post soon. I am still working on a homeschool routine as well, I want it to be more organized. We are just winging it right now.
**I am slightly discouraged about the quilt. The hand stitching is taking awhile, however it is fun. I am quite addicted to it now, it's just hard to find the time to sit for a couple of hours in peace to do it :) For anyone interested I found a great website that has video instructions, woo hoo!! Drawings just don't work for me.
www.needlenthread.com then you go to the video library of stitches.
Off to get started!
