Baking Fest

I do love to bake. I was feeling extra-ambitious today, and managed to churn out a loaf of honey wheat bread, two loaves of zucchini bread, and a big batch of banana-cinnamon pancakes (some with mini chocolate chips, for my sweet Camden) for my boys. I like to make up a bunch of pancakes ahead of time and freeze them, because then I can just pop them in the toaster in the morning and it makes things so much easier. While my parents were here, my Mom made 9 meals-worth of her delicious spaghetti sauce, which is now in my freezer, ready for an easy dinner. I'm thinking that over the weekend I'll make up and freeze a big batch of meatballs. I like having some things pre-made and frozen because sometimes the day escapes me for whatever reason, and it is hard to pull dinner together at the last minute.

The boys are asleep and I hope to be sleeping soon, too. First, as promised, here are some photos from when my parents were here. My mother took most of these...thanks for sharing, Mum!

Oh, how I love my boys...

Your baking looks absolutely delicious, Heather. I should try making ahead some pancakes. Uncle Ken would be delirious with joy, I'm sure. Do you have my Make-ahead Meatballs recipe? It makes the chore so much easier: 4 lbs. of hamburg...and bake them rather than fry them. Cute pictures of the boys. Can't wait to see them. Love, Aunt Jean
