Whenever Crystal posts about doing a baking day, I always get a little excited to doing some extra baking, whether I was planning to or not. It worked rather nicely this week since I really needed to get some done but couldn’t find the motivation.
So I decided to do a few things and have a mini baking day. I really couldn’t do too much since my freezer is pretty packed right now. On the flip side though, the more I baked, the more we’d have yummy things to snack on. That’s both good (if you’re my husband or kids) and bad (if you’re me who’s still trying to lose 10 pounds but can’t resist a fresh-baked cookie).
Here is what I accomplished today:
- 2 batches Italian breadsticks (all bagged up and in the freezer)
- 2 batches butter pecan-banana waffles (recipe coming up later this week)
- 1 batch oatmeal cookie dough (1/2 the dough went in the freezer and the other half were used to make these blackberry jam-oatmeal cookie sandwiches.)
I’ll be the first to admit that the quantity is not very impressive. But the quality? Oh yeah! Everything was so good I had to force myself to walk away from the kitchen.
