busy day of baking

Today the weather here was a good 15 degrees cooler than it was yesterday. Much better day for baking, so bake I did! What I made today:

Noelle's Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread

Zucchini Oatmeal Cookies

a new whole wheat sandwich bread, recipe to be posted soon!

Summer Squash Bread, but a little different version

I haven't tasted any of the last bread yet so after I do I will decide if I want to post that recipe as is or tweak it a little more. The sandwich bread really is awesome. I used a mix of my hard wheat flour and my soft wheat flour and I'm really happy with it. Like I said, that will come later.

The plan for dinner? Since I've been baking all day, I'm not really in the mood to cook a lot. I cooked 2 whole chickens in the crock pot yesterday with some of the frozen veggies I had in the freezer. I put the chickens in the crock pot (a 6 quart one) then put a couple of spoons of bottled minced garlic on top. I sprinkled on frozen chopped onion, red bell peppers and celery tops all pretty liberally. I then put about 2 teaspoons of chicken bouillon granules on top. poured in 1 cup of water and let it all sit for about 12 hours. Then I picked the bones clean. Now I have lots of yummy flavorful chicken.

I'm about to mix up some BBQ sauce and let some chicken simmer in that. We will put the chicken on buns for sammies tonight. We'll have a broccoli salad and not sure what else. Maybe a whipped turnip puff? Just reread the recipe for that and it sounds easy enough to do when I am this tired of the kitchen. I'll let you all know if it's a keeper or not.

There are so many things you can do with a chicken once it is cooked...and I'll bet the kitchen smelled heavenly!

Now...the turnip puff! Tell me more!
