Baking Day

Digg!
I'm so bummed today. Today I was supposed to take the boys to the pumpkin patch with our MOPS group, but I had to bail because the baby has been sick with a cold this week. I think he may finally be cutting a tooth (the child has no teeth and is 11 month old) so it has been a big whine fest here this week. Bless his little heart he has been so pitiful.

One thing that cheered me up was seeing a tweet from Crystal at Money Saving Mom http://www.moneysavingmom.com/ and she is having baking days at her house today and tomorrow. She has suggested that other bloggers join her and tweet about their baking using the hash tag #BakingDay. The whole idea of baking day made me smile and think that I'd like to join in too. I find that when the weather starts to get cooler it usually makes me want to bake.

Just as Crystal is doing with her kids, I plan on letting my son Sawyer help me with the baking. I've been getting him to help me more with cooking in the hopes that he will start expanding what he eats. I love having him help me cook. It is a special time for us and gives me a chance to work on teaching him different skills. I want to teach him and his brother how to cook so that one day when they are on their own they will be able to make healthy, delicious meals. I figure it also will be a gift to my future daughter in laws to have husbands who can actually cook. That may just keep me out of the old folks home. LOL

Crystal has listed a pretty extensive list of things she hopes to accomplish in her kitchen. I think that we will focuse on one recipe and try to bake some pumpkin bread. It just seems like a good thing to make for this time of the year. I'll be tweeting about our baking and try to post an update if I get a chance.

Will you be baking any goodies? If so, I'd love to hear what you are making.

Well, that is all from my neck of the woods. Hope you are having a great day!

I am going to make Giant Breakfast Cookies later when Shrade takes his nap. I got it off of one of my favorite new websites: http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/blog/. I'm trying to keep up with you on your blog because I think it's so cute and I'm trying to make mine better. :)
