This weekend is going to be loads of fun. It’s been declared family baking weekend. We do this a few times a year and the kids absolutely love it. I talked about what we were doing for Thanksgiving over at Writeminded a few days ago and how we were foregoing the traditional turkey and dressing stuff, so this weekend we’re going to search out some new recipes and get all the fixings to make our Thanksgiving dinner but we’re also having baking day. We make homemade sugar cookies and homemade chocolate chip cookies. Lots of raw dough is consumed and lots of finger licking happens :woot:
The chocolate chip making is always fun because we make four times the recipe. Talk about a huge bowl of dough! But we freeze the dough in tubes so we have cookies for weeks to come. All the kids pitch in and everyone has an assigned duty. Hubby always has to do the mixing, because stirring and mixing four times the recipe is hard work. Seriously. He’s the only one with the strength to get it all mixed up good enough :lol2:
I’m leaning toward a rib roast for thanksgiving. I’ll make homemade bread of course because my rolls are to die for. Other then that, I’m not sure yet what else we’ll be making. Maybe some homemade mac and cheese. Part of the fun is looking up new recipes, so it’s no telling what we’ll come up with.
If I don’t make it back before Thanksgiving, I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday :hug:
