Yesterday I tried a new recipe. Now don't whip out a pen and paper, or fix yourself to copy and paste or print it out just yet. This is all it consists of
1 3/4 cups whole wheat flour.
1 1/2 cups white flour
3/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup oil and
1 cup water
knead only slightly, roll out on three greased cookie sheets very thinly, sprinkle with coarse, kosher salt and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
This makes something similar to wheat thins. But, not quite.
Braden and Caib had ball practice after school yesterday and since Braden had forgotten his ball bag with all his gear in it I decided I would pick up Caib and Aubree from school drop Aubree off at Piano lessons, run Caib home to grab his ball stuff(Braden and he are on the same ball team), and then pick Aubree up after her 15 minute lesson and we would all go to the high school to practice throwing the discus for thirty minutes before their practice started. Every thing was going smoothly until Braden called from home and wondered where I was with his ball bag. Apparently he had ridden home with grandma from Bicknell to grab his stuff. So, I turned around in Lyman, the town between here and Bicknell ,where the high school is, ran home and grabbed Braden and once again headed for the high school.
That is when I pulled out the home made crackers and offered them each a taste. Aubree and Chance loved them. wahoo!!, they like something healthy. Caib wrinkles his nose and keeps nibbling. Braden takes a bite, shrugs and Says "you can tell they aren't real" But despite everything they kept eating them.
Today I made 4 batches of strawberry freezer jam. I had to sample it so I grabbed a homemade cracker and dipped it in and............Well, now I'm feeling very homemakey and healthy.
I can't wait till the kids get home.
