Baking Day

by GettingFreedom on October 6, 2009

I’ve been overdue for a baking day, and have finally just decided that in the midst of my craziness, I would just have to schedule one. I’m hoping to get a bunch of muffins, breads and cookies baked up and in the freezer so I can just grab some when I need them. The only problem I see, is that I have to take my youngest to preschool in the middle of the day, everyday, which generally haults my production for a bit. Because of this, I think I will end up doing all my baking over two days; Tuesday and Wednesday.

I will update the post as I go along. This is what I have planned so far:

Chocolate Chip Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Shortbread Cookies Decided against these.
Pumpkin Bread x 2
Pumpkin Pie
French Bread x 4 Finished 2
Whole Wheat Bread x 2 (maybe 4??) Tried something new with batch #1–HUGE FLOP!
Pumpkin Caramel Muffins
(modified from Amy’s Pumpkin Butterscotch) Ended up making double batch of these as well.
Whole Wheat Honey Pumpkin Muffins x 2
Apple Streusel Muffins. Experimenting with this one.
Breakfast Burritos
Ham/Cheese and Pizza Pockets
(hopefully will get to these.)

I meant to take pictures before I prepared them for the freezer–but I spaced it!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin Honey Muffins (the rest are in the cookie jar), Pumpkin Bread (1 was almost devoured after dinner!)

Pumpkin Caramel Muffins. The “hole” you see is a caramel. The last time I made these I used Caramel Bits, but the grocery store I ran to today didn’t have them–they only had the traditional ones. My thinking was to put a surprise in every muffin–some it worked on, some it didn’t.

I think that is plenty! This is what I want to accomplish, but I’m really not sure I will be able to get to it all. I have a morning of appointments regarding our home addition, so I won’t be able to actually get started until noon-ish tomorrow and I will finish up on Wednesday.

Feel free to join in on your own baking day. You can follow my progress here and on Twitter. If you are a Twitter User and joining in on the baking day fun–use the #bakingday hash so we can all follow along.

Stocking my freezer with home baked, healthy, and yummy snacks Works for Me!
