We are giving away almost all of the staple items you need to make our Whole Wheat Honey Oatmeal Bread. (less the butter and salt), wheat berries to use in making pasta (Durum wheat), wheat berries to use in making pastries (soft white wheat), bread pans to make the Whole Wheat Honey Oatmeal Bread and Hallee’s Whole Wheat French Bread, and the L’Equip NutriMill Grain Mill to make fresh milled flour.
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of June 6th. My menu will be scaled down a bit for the next few weeks. Kaylee is gone, and Gregg won’t be home until later in the month, so the meals are going to be much more toddler-friendly. As far as desserts go, I have some fresh peaches, so I think I’m going to make a Fresh Peach Pie. I also made a French Vanilla Bean Honey Ice Cream – I will post that recipe this week.Pin It
Grits, for those of you who haven’t spent a good portion of your life below the Mason-Dixon line, is a cornmeal made from hominy. Hominy is hulled corn kernels that have been stripped of their bran and germ. What the American Indians gave the Pilgrims was likely hominy. “Lye hominy” is made when the kernels of corn are soaked in a light lye solution. You can get white grits (made from white corn) or yellow grits (made from yellow corn). The difference between grits and polenta, other than regions of America, is that polenta is made from corn that retains the germ of the grain.Pin It
My son Scott loves potato chips. Since potatoes are in the “dirty dozen”, I try very hard to just get organic potato chips. But, organic potato chips are SO EXPENSIVE. It doesn’t seem worthwhile to even buy that little tiny bag. Recently, Scott brought me a potato and said, “Can you make me some potato chips?” I love the fact that he deduced that potato chips come from potatoes, and that he was confident I could produce them. Which I did. They were amazing. Kaylee came home from softball practice and ate the leftovers, then asked if I would make them for her the next morning for her lunch. I will never purchase bagged potato chips again.Pin It
These were so good. I think what I liked about them was the lack of green pepper – green pepper throws the taste of baked beans off for me. I think some beef bacon would have been good in them as well, but this recipe is entirely vegetarian. The flavors were wonderful. Because there are no meat or dairy products in it, this is a perfect dish for a Daniel Fast or for Lent.Pin It
Here’s the menu for my family for the week of February 14th. As far as desserts go, we have Floating Hearts to enjoy today, and I’ll be making fruit pizzas (recipe to follow) for a night at church this week!Pin It
