Just a little update...

It's only Tuesday and I'm already changing my menu. First, last night I made a double batch of Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies to send to my husband's former unit now deployed in Iraq. I think that is enough cookies for the week, so the pumpkin cranberry cookies will have to wait till next week.

While I was baking cookies, I decided to make a batch of pizza dough in my breadmaker (recipe to come). I froze half of the dough and have half in the fridge for bbq chicken pizza tomorrow (that reminds me that I should take chicken out of the freezer!).

Just put Garden Minestrone Soup in the slowcooker and I'm going to bed just as soon as I finish this post. It'll simmer in the crock overnight and tomorrow I'll add in the spinach and shells.

Since pizza is definitely on the menu, I'm bumping the eggplant bolognese until next week. Not only do I think the eggplant parm is probably going to use all my eggplant, I used nearly all my tomatoes in the soup and don't want to make another trip to the store just for canned tomatoes.

Finally, I used my third premade baking mix this morning and made pancakes! They came out a bit flat, but since it was a new recipe, I don't believe the "premade" factor hurt them. My goal is to make another batch of mixes this weekend, including waffle mix and maybe some instant oatmeal packets.

Okay, time for bed. Thanks for stopping by!
