Can I just say how excited I am for this post?! If you know me at all, I love playing the role of housewife. I like a neat and tidy house and who doesnt love a home-cooked meal?
Of course, thats all easy to do now, when its just my husband and I. I keep up with the cleaning during the week so we have free weekends and I leave the cooking to him, because lets face it, hes pretty good at it.
You can say we have a pretty good system going, but with a little one on the way, lets face it, the house we have now may look quite different in 2 more months. Ive come to grips that the house will not be as clean as it is now but one thing that I dont want to skimp on is meals. Its WAY cheaper to cook at home, its healthier, and to be honest, it tastes way better than any restaurant we go to.
This all brings me to todays post. I am starting to prepare myself for less time and have been thinking about some freezer meals I can do, crock pot meals, and anything that is quick. My favorite food is breakfast and I often crave pancakes, so this is my attempt at having the home-cooked meal for the mom that just doesnt have the time.
This can be your substitute for Bisquick. Its great for making pancakes, waffles, banana bread, quiche, egg casserole or muffins. Or when you’re making dinner like chicken pot pie, taco pie or stew with dumplings. The list really goes on and on so have fun with it.
Makes 2 cups
2 c. spelt flour (or whole wheat flour)
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. olive oil
Combine the ingredients into a blender. Blend until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Use as you would Bisquick mix.
