As with a lot of tasks, a few minutes of preparation can often make all the difference!
Premixed dry ingredients.
Last night's prep work included:
- Feeding my sourdough starter so it would be ready to go in the morning.
- Pureed peaches for oatmeal peach muffins.
- Making sure any frozen items(fruit, extra flour) were brought in from the freezer.
- Pre-mixing (and labeling!) dry ingredients for muffins and bread in bowls large enough for mixing.
- Gathering all recipes needed.
My order of operations:
- Start Pilgrims' Bread and set aside to rise.
- Make Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins.
- Make Oatmeal Peach Muffins.
- Shape bread dough into loaves and set aside to rise.
- Wash dishes.
- Mix waffle batter and begin making waffles.
- Bake bread.
- Finish waffles.
- Make fruit syrup, including a vlog which will be coming soon!
- Wash dishes.
The fruits of my labors:
- 2 loaves Pilgrims' Bread.
- 1 dozen banana chocolate chip muffins.
- 1 dozen oatmeal peach muffins. New recipe, very yummy! Although next time, I'll make more than 12 muffins. They were way too big and therefore were very difficult to get out of the pan without breaking.
- A big stack of waffles! Approximately 4 meals worth.
- 3 containers of blueberry fruit syrup
Next Tuesday, I'll be focusing on cooking and freezing some easy lunch options. Anyone want to plan on joining me? (You can make whatever you like, not just lunches.)
