Baking Day – The Fruits of Our Labor

We did it! Almost. The banana bread didn’t happen, but seeing as I didn’t originally intend to make the carrot-zucchini bread, I’d consider it a wash.

— Gramma John’s Blue Ribbon Chocolate Chip Cookies
— Land O’ Lakes’ Chewy Jumbo Chocolate Chip Cookies
— Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
— Baguettes
Calzone Dough
— Cranberry Bread
Apple Pies (one to bake – one to freeze)
Chocolate Zucchini Cake
Mixes for pancakes, waffles, and Maple-Oat Scones

And an impromptu addition:
Carrot-Zucchini-Walnut Bread

We only had one casualty – mine (a blistery burn from a hot pan). Overall, it was a productive day.

I think it’s time to exercise tomorrow.

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
