Baking Fool!

I’ve been preparing for our vacation, and storing things in the freezer.  I thought if we brought most of our food with us, we’d avoid the headaches of trying to eat out.

As if dining out as a family of 10 wasn’t strange enough to most people, add in celiac disease… and you can imagine why dining “in” seemed like more of a vacation to me.

Since my bread maker hadn’t gotten here yet – I was STOKED that HyVee had Udi’s sandwich bread on sale.  I’m pretty sure they didn’t assume I would clean them out… but I did – and loaded our freezer.  Each loaf (they’re small) is one meal for our kids to have sandwiches.

Orange Cranberry Scones!

While grabbing some things in a box sounds like a good idea…. actually knowing what is in your food is a better one.  I’ve learned how to make scones (Thanks YOUTUBE!), and I made flourless cookies that were lactose and gluten-free!  (Thanks Steph for the recipe!)  I also made a bunch of muffins of varying flavors.

Super Yummy (especially right out of the oven!)

Our huge Vitacost.com orders came – and I think we’re set with gluten-free snacks, and supplements.  (I can’t say enough great things about that company – ALL thumbs up here!)

I really do think God hears me every time I say, “I will never…”  Because I’m pretty sure I said I’d never own a bread maker.  I’ll chalk it up there with no spinach smoothies, and hummus {Amazing what you’ll do to get some calories in when you’re sick!}.

I’m not afraid to eat crow.  That’s how I have 8 kids, drive a giant school bus of a van, and home school.  Being moldable is very important.   We can’t have all of the answers – that would make us God.  Nope, I’m pretty happy being a lowly person He calls His own.  Thanks God.

“Listen to me, you stubborn of heart, you who are far from righteousness:  

I bring near my righteousness; it is not far off, and my salvation will not delay; I will put salvation in Zion, for Israel my glory.”

Isaiah 46:12-13
