Non-Baking Day and a Baking Day

I haven't had a baking day in a while, and I definitely need to. Especially with the weather getting warm (finally!). Here are some reasons a baking day is a good idea:

  • Get all baking done in one afternoon, and have baked goods ready to eat when needed over the next few weeks.

  • Get all baking done in one afternoon, so your kitchen isn't hot day after day. You just have one afternoon to contend with. So make it a cooler day, start in the early morning!

  • FRUGAL! Baking your own items is a lot cheaper then purchasing them in the store.

  • HEALTHY! The items you make are most likely more healthy for your family also.

In the next few days, here are the items I want to make on a "Baking Day":

  • muffins for breakfasts (this will cut down on the cereal consumption if I don't wake before the kids do).

  • Tortillas for tacos

  • Granola Bars (wonderful recipe coming soon!!!)

I also want to have a Non-baking day, where I make things that don't require the use of the oven. Here is what I hope to make:

  • homemade noodles

  • dehydrated peaches and apples (for snacking).

Do YOU have baking days? If not, you should try it out. Last time I did it, I had rolls that lasted in the freezer for about a month, and it was wonderful to pull them out last minute for an extra side to our meal.

Happy Baking!
