The winds were howling last night and all I could think about was our 55 year old Ash tree. My fingers were crossed that no large branches had broken off. This morning a few were hanging but nothing major. Schools are all closed yet again as the temperature could go as low as negative 35 degrees with the wind chill. We are generally in two modes here...snow or bitter cold.
The menu this week is soup, chili and homemade bread. My new go to bread recipe is from Honey and Jam. It's a no knead bread which makes it easy. The recipe calls for a lower pan in the oven with water to help create steam which in turn forms a really nice brown crust.
After bread making homemade concoctions were made with water, flower, yeast, garlic powder, and dried basil. Let me tell you, the smell was intense but the fun was fierce!
And the baking cupboard is just about finished. Glasses were moved and sorted and now all of our tools and ingredients are in one spot.
I found some great removable contact paper that I lined the back of the cupboard with
magnetic strips for recipes and lists
drawers beneath are filled with cake, muffin, and loaf pans
boxes at the top are filled with birthday baking supplies and holiday baking supplies
It's nice to have a bit of organization so that we know what we have and where things are!
I hope that your week is off to a great start and that wherever you are you're staying warm!!!
