Why don’t I bake?
Sunday, February 16, 2014
Because I’m like the “Little Red Hen.” If I made it, I’m going to eat it.
We were snowed in by the latest storm and lost our Internet connection (Satellite) for over 24 hours.
I watched a lot of Olympics including all the late night sessions I had recorded for “later.”
I organized my pantry and got an unusual urge to cook and even bake.
First my baked omelet
That’s 6 servings, quite healthy, and even freezes well in individual servings.
Then some broccoli - brown rice muffins that DH calls “hockey pucks” because of their appearance not their taste. I’m supposed to use a mini-muffin pan and I don’t have one. So mine are flat and wide.
Also some peanut butter fudge bars made with chocolate protein powder, oatmeal and honey. No baking required.
I also pureed 2 frozen bananas to make some “pseudo soft ice cream” but that didn’t hang around long enough to be photographed. I gobbled that right up.
I would have progressed to serious baking except as I looked closely at my baking ingredients, I noticed this.
Both the flour and baking powder are UNOPENED!
No baking for me and that’s just fine. Saved by the passage of time!
