Thursday: Baking Day #1

In anticipation of our second child's arrival (sometime in the next two weeks~ oh my word!) I have set up two consecutive baking days. Yesterday I completed the organization, which was done at night on the couch with cook books open and some fun sit-coms on in the background. Today, I completed the grocery shopping and round one of the baking.
I planned on taking pictures of each meal as I made it to show you step by step directions, but I left the camera in my hubbies car. So instead I will list what I made today and then post each recipe in the coming weeks.

I used, for many of these meals, a great resource called: Once a Month Cooking by Mimi Wilson and Mary Beth Lagerborn. The meals that came from this book will have a astric by them.

Baking Day #1

Six Chicken Packets*
12 Calzones*
Marinara Sauce
Sweet and Sour Chicken*
Lasagna
Stuffed Shells
Beef Stroganoff
Three loaves of bread
4 pie crusts



Wowowowowowwo!! I am proud of myself. Here, I am doing a cartwheel in celebration. Okay, wait a minute I am nine months pregnant so I will skip the cartwheel and do a celebratory jig instead. Here it goes...jig...jig...jig...


Tomorrow Sarah (Frugal Table) will be here with me.
We are cooking/baking the following:
Meatballs
Ham, Broccoli and Cheese Quiche
Bacon and Cheese Quiche cups
Granola
Sausage Rolls



Everything I baked today I put into ziplocks/containers, labeled and froze. Having a dishwasher and a deep freeze makes baking day a breeze for the most part. I am looking forward to the comradery of tomorrows baking day with Sarah.

Will post recipes soon!
