Finding Contentment in My Kitchen: Saturday Baking

posted in: journal 1

I use Saturdays to “get ahead” on the food prep for the coming week: to make bread, to get at least one quick breakfast option baked, to make something yummy for Sundays.

Here’s what came out of my kitchen this Saturday!

Pretty Breads

This week I did muffins, whole wheat dinner rolls, and cinnamon rolls.

I plan on posting my muffin recipe – Whole Wheat Cinnamon Muffins – next week!

Happy Cinnamon Rolls

Baking cinnamon rolls for Sunday morning is my latest attempt to set Sundays apart as a special day, a little mini holiday. They are 100% whole wheat and not the most decadent; after all, I don’t want everyone having a sugar crash at church! But I do add frosting, so the kids all think they’re the best.

I have a little kitchen helper currently who loves to come in and get a little work done on the sly.

It’s a good thing she’s so super cute.

It’s a good thing I’m super cute? Well, at least, it’s a good thing I feed my family and make them happy.

I make plenty of mess on my own, thankyouverymuch.

Real Delicious Convenience

I’ve been caramelizing onions (5-6) and roasting heads of garlic (3-4) on Saturday and then just pulling out the already-delicious and chopped veggies as the start of dinners throughout the week.

    Those cinnamon rolls look delicious–and they sound like the perfect Sunday morning treat! I agree with the “let’s not have a sugar crash during church” idea!
