Recap of Week 5
- Experiment with making Musings of a Housewife's Homemade Whole Wheat Bread Recipe a Soaked Bread Recipe and try Upon Our Hearts's. - I was able to adapt the recipe to a soaked sandwich bread recipe. It is so yummy! However, I did not have a chance to try Upon Our Heart's recipe. I will have to try it this week.
- Apply for CSA/Buying Club. - I did not get a chance to fill out the application last week, so I will do it this week.
- Try Kefir and introduce it to kids. - We all liked the kefir we tried. It was a vanilla flavor. Super good.
Books - Two of the books that I checked out from the library this week are phenomenal. I will be purchasing them.
- Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients - I love this book. It has recipes for bread dough that you can make in bulk and store in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. When you want a fresh loaf, you just pull off a portion, let it rise, and bake. Super easy and so good...seriously! I will be making all of my artisan-style loaves with this recipe. I may even try it for sandwich bread sometime.
- Bob's Red Mill Baking Book - This book has so many recipes that I want to try. This week I made the Parmesan Muffin recipe. They were delicious.
- Burt's Bees Grapefruit and Sugar Beet Shampoo and Conditioner - These smell so good. They really do make your hair extra shiny, as well. I ordered from Vitacost. They have great prices on vitamins and bath and body products. Plus, shipping is only $4.99.
*These have a hazard score of 2 on the Skin Deep Cosmetic Safety Database. Pretty good - a "1" is the best.
- Calabacitas from Sarah's Musings - Very rich, cheesey, and gooey. Great comfort food.
Week Six Goals
- Try making rolls from Master Recipe in Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day: 100 New Recipes Featuring Whole Grains, Fruits, Vegetables, and Gluten-Free Ingredients
- Start a collection of family friendly vegetarian meals. Grass fed meats are more expensive. Therefore, to stay within our budget, we will now be incorporating a few more "meatless meals" into our meal plans.
- Research how to make homemade kefir. We all enjoy kefir. However, it is a little pricey, so I thought I would see if I could make my own.
- Apply for the CSA and Buying Group.
