An Afternoon in the Kitchen
Yesterday I had a wonderfully unscheduled afternoon and decided to spend that time in the kitchen. It was productive and enjoyable as well!
I started off by making 6 loaves of bread. We were completely out of bread and were in crisis mode! LOL..
Then while the bread was rising and baking I started working on making a gallon jar of sauerkraut. I used one green cabbage and half of a red cabbage and 2 onions. I thought the addition of red cabbage sure made the kraut look pretty.
Then while the kraut sat in the bowl with the salt and whey I began making a gallon of salsa. I love utilizing all these fresh veggies and knowing that fermenting means they will last longer and have more vitamin content than if I did not ferment them. The salsa looked great too. Here is a pic of both….
For dinner we were going to grill hamburgers and hot dogs. So after the bread, salsa, and kraut were done I made up a batch of my oat dinner rolls and turned them into 10 hamburger buns and 12 hot dog buns.
Finally Leanne made shortcake, Sierra sliced up the berries and we had strawberry shortcake for our dessert…
Working in the kitchen and making good quality food for my family is very rewarding.. now today.. it is on to laundry and chores!!
