A sort of productive day....

Well, today was somewhat productive. I started out the day working on my New Years Resolution to master making biscuits. They turned out well. This is the recipe I used:

Then I decided to start on the honey oat bread. This is the recipe I used: I didn't put the topping on this time. For me, I wanted to use the bread for sandwiches and things and the honey/oat topping just made it more of a sweet bread than an all purpose bread. But, I made it today and it turned out really well as a sandwich bread.

I also made chicken rice soup with the remaining  chicken from Thursday, rice from last night, some chicken broth, some diced carrots and a bit of lemon juice.

And since I was still in a baking mood, I decided to make some granola bars. I wanted "almond joy" ones. I used this recipe:
But, I halved it and then added 1/3 c each of sliced almonds, coconut, and mini chocolate chips. So, I got a lot done today.

I have also decided that I have so much stuff in the freezer I should not buy any more groceries until I clear out the freezer a bit. This means there might not be a lot of cooking this week if I try to clear that out, but we'll see what happens.
