Mass Production



March was a long month.  My plate was full.  My freezer was empty.

On Sunday afternoon my family generously pitched in to help get the house cleaned and organized for the start of a new week.  That left my Monday morning free for some baking (since I forgot to thaw the meat I was going to prep).

By noon I had double batches of chocolate muffins, chocolate chip muffins, chocolate butterhorns, and bacon cheddar pinwheels cooling on the counter, leaving me time to tidy the kitchen before my chauffeur duties began.

Baking is like therapy for me, and I was so thankful for a productive morning in the kitchen and the help that made it possible. 

Apparently I am also thankful for chocolate.  I didn't even realize how much I appreciate chocolate until I had finished the dishes, and started carrying baked goods to the freezer. 

(My local bread outlet sells bread bags 25 for 25 cents.  They work great for freezing baked goods!)

Am I the only one who gets excited about a freezer full of mass produced baked goods?

  3. You're not alone; I get a warm, fuzzy feeling when I look into my well-stocked freezer. Speaking of which, I need to start restocking it since we've eaten almost everything I prepared before the baby was born.
