I tried a Pinterest recipe for oatmeal in the crockpot overnight.  Umm, not a huge success, to say the least.  Then I remembered Alton Brown has a bread recipe using leftover oatmeal.  It's rising right now, so hope it turns out ok.  Soaking the cooked-on oatmeal out of the crockpot is going to be an all day project, I can tell. 

 

Hello OC,

 fill your crock with hot water and add some dishwasher (machine) such as cascade or put some water in to crockpot, put the lid on and let it heat for a while, it should scrape away eaisly with a ribber spatula.

Have a batch of chocolate chip cookies mixed up.  Not sure whether I will bake them today or tomorrow.

I have 2 dozen brown sugar and oatmeal dinner rolls on the last rise. Most will be frozen. We will eat a couple with homemade ravioli and homemade marinara sauce. Cheesecake baked yesterday for our sweet.

Thanks for the crockpot clean-up idea, Joell.  I will remember it for next time!  I just let it soak a long time in the sink yesterday.  The bread came out really well, and the toast I had with it this morning was tasty! 

 

Today I'm making spinach/cheese calzones for supper.  My son will ask where the meat is….he's out of luck this time.

Got a good deal on some Italian sausage the other day, so I will be making pizza tonight. Sausage, mushroom and pineapple toppings. Hubby would rather not get too exotic with his pizza.  happy-flower

Yum, makes me hungry.  I need to send my address, so that the great bakers here will not have to worry about leftovers.

Wouldn't it be really fun to have a BIG potluck breakfast, lunch, and dinner with all the CITR members. Get to sample all of the mouthwatering treats we hear about. It would be quite an undertaking to get us all together in one spot, but truly a gastronomical delight!

happy-flowerHi there Squeegees Mom_ what a great idea, can you just imagine the length of that table? But it would be fun.

 

 This morning I a made a lot of pie crusts, I hope to make a couple of apple pies from some marked down apples that I purchased as well as some frozen peachs, they willl go into the freezer for furure use. This morning when I was baking, there was one of those little recipe floders attached to the lid of the Crisco and since I was using the last of the contents of the can I decided to see what was in there, a recipe for cranberry, walnut oatmeal cookies caught my eye and since I have everthing I need to bake them, I will be making them today. I swear, I go to bed at night thinking about what I can bake the next day..yes

Since we will be celebrating our son's 39th birthday tomorrow (belated) I was asked to bake the cake.  A strawberry one at that.  Well, I ended up with a four layer (2 cake mixes) one with strawberry curd between the layers.  I used Suzanne's Lemon Curd recipe and just substituted strawberry juice for lemon juice.   The curd looked kinda funky but I added some red food coloring to it and it looks good on the cake.  The frosting is just going to be canned vanilla frosting mixed with cool whip. 

Gave DH a taste of cake and curd and it met with his seal of approval.

Another challenge off my list.

happy-flowerOh my,Miss Judy, that cake sound so good!

 Today is breading baking day and a pan of cinnamon rools, although that cake of Miss Judy's is lingeringing in my mind.

I have a big batch of cinnamon raisin bagels working. We found some Pumpkin Pie Spice flavored cream cheese in a tub on clearance for a quarter each. Guess the flavor was not a hit. We took a chance on it and found it to be quite tasty. So now I need to make more bagels so we can use up the 4 tubs we bought!

Gotta do what ya gotta do hungry  and fresh bagels would do the trick.

Not technically baking, but making Cindy P's crockpot yogurt for the first time today.  Fingers crossed!

Today I have 6 small loaves of french bread rising. One is destined for garlic bread for tomorrow's spaghetti. The others will go into the freezer until needed.

My yogurt turned out!  I know you were all worried about that.  I let it sit from 4pm until 5:30am when my cat requested his breakfast service.  I used whole milk and my starter was a cup of Trader Joe's plain yogurt.  I'm really happy!

 

I'm going to let my kid pick what kind of cookies to bake today, and maybe some bread.
