So I made 2 loaves of Almond Bread. One with sliced almonds and one without, both loaded with flax seed. i put half of each in the freezer and kept the others sliced and ready for eatin!
While those were in the over, I worked on making some Pancakes. I had enough of my homemade pancake mix for 14, but after me eating one and the baby eating one, i stuck 12 in the freezer.
I have a giant Tupperware I keep my mix in. here is that receipt....I just keep making it over and over till my Tupperware if full, its usually like quadrupled if not more.
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons baking powder
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1 tablespoon melted butter
For the pancake mix:
Mix the above ingredients together and store in a jar.
For the pancake batter:
For each 1 cup pancake mix, add 1 egg, 1 cup milk, and 1 tablespoon melted butter. Do not over mix.
Heat a flat griddle or pan over medium-high heat.
Spoon drops of 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of batter onto the hot griddle and when bubbles appear on the surface of the little pancakes, flip them over to make them golden brown on both sides. A minute or so a side should do it.
They must have been pretty good because check out baby!
Now i realized I needed to figure out dinner. I had no motivation for anything extravagant and since I was already freezing things, i Decided to make 2 pizza doughs, one for dinner one for freezer.
Doesn't that just look yummy! I made an extra cheese spinach and chicken pizza, hands down amazing! (no pic of the frozen dough in the freezer!

Homemade PizzaPizza Crust: 1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105 to 115 degrees F.)
1 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 1/2 cups flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add the rest of the ingredients in and mix.
Dump onto a floured surface.
Knead into a smooth dough (five minutes or so).
Roll out and press down onto a greased pizza pan.
Add toppings. (Have fun and be creative with this! Our favorite variety is salsa or barbecue sauce, diced cooked chicken, and cheese.)
Bake at 450 degrees F. for around 12-15 minutes until the crust looks crispy and lightly browned.
Lastly, i worked on some cinnamon buns, I knew it was pointless to freeze these, they are just being eaten left and right. (This is my desert tray or breakfast tray)
All said and done i was in the kitchen between 11-2:30, plus the time to finish off the pizza at dinner. It wasn't a bad day, and I do have items in the freezer now. My boy was a great help washing dishes ( yes i had to rewash them but does it get any cuter?!)
