Easy 4 ingredient French bread. Not a total fail, but not a true success either.
yeast, honey, salt, water, flour....hmmmm, that's five. LOL Maybe salt doesn't count? I am going with the water doesn't count.
Anyway, I cut the salt way back, and it was definitely missing. I went by feel of the water temperature, and think that's perhaps why the dough (though it doubled in size) wasn't as airy inside. Was actually quite dense. Maybe I didn't knead it enough? I followed the recipe to the letter. The crust was nice, though not browned enough, I think the next time I do it I would do a baking soda/water wash. I also think though it doubled in size, my house wasn't warm enough to really get the rise going.
To give full credit, I found this recipe on mymundaneandmiraculouslife.com
I will definitely try it again as it is easy.
One of my favorite Amish treats/breakfasts is baked oatmeal. I ate it when there every day, and brought some home. I decided it was time to make it myself. Next time I will make it in a round casserole dish. I was very pleased with the outcome.
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar (original recipe called for a full cup)
1.5 cups of almond milk (I don't use dairy except for occasional hard cheese and yogurt)
3 cups of oats (I used old fashioned)
1.5 tsp vanilla
Baked for 40 minutes 350
Next time I will add blueberries or dried peaches. It was delicious, and here is the breakdown of calories
I roasted a chicken
Made stock with the neck and veggie peelings
Made soup with the meat of one leg quarter and wings, carrots, celery, onion, colonial seasoning mix, half a carton of rice from leftover Chinese food

I have a baguette and will make ziti for DH and a few raviolis for Gpa P
We had shrimp with rice on Sunday (I cooked) with the last of our frozen farmers market broccoli

On Sunday I also made tuna and egg salads (hid them in garage fridge) for DH's work lunches.
