Today’s Menu


Homemade Pizza
Chocolate Milk

BBQ’d Meatloaf
Steamed Rice
Black Eyed Peas

I did try something new today which was to make up to extra batches of pizza dough mix. I added the following ingredients to a Ziploc bag.

2 1/2 cups of flour,
2 tablespoons of baking powder
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of dry yeast

So now when I want pizza dough all I need to do is pull out a bag and add 3/4 cups of water and 3 tablespoons of canola oil to the mix (in a bowl)

I’m also going to try a similar technique with rice.

I’ll add 2 cups of dry rice, 2 bullion cubes
2 t-spoons of chili powder of chili powder
1/2 t-spoon of pepper

I’ll make another batch substituting the chili powder with:

1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
1 t-spoon Garlic powder
1 t-spoon of onion powder

When it’s time to cook I’ll add:
3 tbls. of canola oil to 3 cups of water
add the rice
and a can of either diced tomatoes (drained)
diced tomato with jalapenos (drained)

Cook your rice according to your normal recipe. I use 1 1/2:1 ratio instead of the 2:1 ratio for my rice. I do this because I like my rice firm (not crunchy firm but Chinese rice firm).This will be a great time saver.

    I used to do the premixing with my bread machine recipes. I would use one or two whole bags of flour at once and bag it in zippies with the other ingrediants (except the yeast) to put in the freezer. It worked great!

    God bless,

    Aren’t homemade mixes just the easiest thing to make? So handy to have in the pantry or freezer…a lifesaver on super busy days!
