The holidays are over and it’s time to get back on track with our menu. As part of my No-Spend Challenge, I’ll be taking stock of what we have on hand and using things up in an intentional way. I’m also going to be baking bread and hopefully getting back in that habit. In addition to my personal No-Spend Challenge, I’m also doing a Home Organization Challenge over the next 14 weeks. I won’t be tackling the big chest freezer until next week so I don’t yet have room for the several loaves my regular bread recipe makes. Instead, this week I’m be making a quick beer bread and a crusty artisan bread. Homemade cherry pie is also on the menu this week for our son’s birthday!
- Brazilian Black Beans ~ An Instant Pot Recipe
- homemade coleslaw
- Super Easy Beer Bread
Our son’s birthday is Wednesday. He has plans that night so I’ll make his special birthday dinner tonight.
- Sour Cream Green Chile Enchiladas
- homemade cherry pie
- homemade artisan bread
Our niece is in town and we may take her out to dinner and a movie if she’s available. If not, we’ll count this as our “date night”.
- pot roast
- potatoes, carrots, onions
- artisan bread
- Mexican food after church and save half for dinner

Is there no way you could make a smaller batch of bread? Just a thought, but most recipes can be reduced if needed..

I’m sure I could, and I do have a recipe for white bread that makes one or two loaves. My “good” whole wheat recipe involves getting out the huge bucket of wheat, grinding it, mixing up a bunch of ingredients and two risings. It’s a fairly time intensive pursuit but it seems worth it if I get 5-6 loaves out of it.
