From Scratch...


It is a beautiful Fall week so far, chilly in the evenings, and daytime temps are very pleasant.

Lots going on still on our little farm, and so life rarely is at a stand still.  Baking and MAKING are difficult when life gets busy, BUT you make time if it's important.  Tuesday I ran LITERALLY all day, run to this place then this place, then do this real quick before I have to go here.  But when I got home, got kids in bed and realized it was 8:30 pm, I WANTED to have some Breakfast muffins for the next morning.  So I made them!  9:30 I pulled them out of the oven, and they were ready for the next day.  Crazy?  Possibly, and very likely.  BUT, important to me....

So here is a run down of what I made this week From Scratch...

  • Pizza crust (this might be on each week, as we LOVE it!).  Made with homemade sauce, turkey burger, organic mushrooms, and cheese.  There is enough dough that I also make breadsticks, and my boys love 'em....
  • Crock pot whole chicken (raised on our farm) broth, organic veggies.... (kept the broth)
  • Chicken noodle soup, made with save broth, noodles, organic veggies.
  • Pumpkin muffins (new one for us, I made it with fresh pumpkin from our garden!0
  • Power Muffins (double batch)
  • Granola.  Delish!
  • Warm Cider, YUM! (Dump cider in a crock pot, add chopped apple sliced orange and cinnamon sticks, let simmer on low for an hour or more)
  • As well as most dinners, and some breakfasts being put together with whole ingredients and made from scratch...
I have much more planned for today, like laundry soap!  I ran out and need to make a new batch!

After carving pumpkins with the college kids (my husband and I lead the college age ministry at our church), I made pumpkin pasta (a recipe from Thy Hand Hath Provided - I wish I knew how to link that!), and I put butter and salt on the pumpkin seeds and baked them for a nice snack!
