Found a Little Money and Did a Bunch of Baking

March 16th, 2010 at 02:14 am

I was cleaning out the pockets of all the winter coats today so that I could wash them and put them away until next autumn and I found some money in two of mine, a grand total of $3.43, so it is going into the coin jar.

$63.86 beginning balance
+ 3.43 amount added
$67.29 ending balance

I haven't gone anywhere since...I'm not sure when. It's been a couple of days so no money has been spent. I'm still not feeling good, but I needed to bake today so I did. Today I made a loaf of bread and hamburger and hot dog buns, brownies, a batch of blueberry muffins and a batch of corn bread muffins. Muffins have been individually wrapped and frozen, bread has been cooled and sliced and buns have been split and put into air tight containers.

I think later in the week I am going to try my hand at making English muffins. The recipe I found doesn't look too hard and I have been sort of craving egg McMuffins lately, but not wanting to pay for them. It's easy enough to poach an egg in the micro, toast a muffin, add some ham and cheese and nuke again to warm them, and there you go. But English Muffins are something of a favorite of T's and most brands have ingredients he can't have.

The white ones have preservatives he's chemically sensitive to and the "healthy" brown ones have raisin juice and he's allergic to grapes and raisins. Bringing those into the house is hard on him. He's so good about avoiding foods he can't have anymore, but waving an old favorite in front of him is just mean. If I can make them myself with pure ingredients, we may have solved that problem altogether and he can have his beloved English muffins again. That would be nice.

    I used to make English muffins years ago and they were pretty easy -- and good! You won't find it a problem at all.

    That's good. The recipe looked pretty simple.
