Making a Home

I spent extra time in the kitchen this week stocking the freezer and trying a new recipe.

I tried this recipe for Homemade Rice Milk. I like it much better than the first recipe I tried for homemade rice milk. It is thick and creamy. I actually have to thin it with water more for drinking.

The recipe made a lot. All the milk above, a 2 quart pitcher, a large peanut butter jar and a store bought spaghetti sauce jar.


This week, when BBQ chicken was on the menu, I made a quadruple recipe of my homemade BBQ sauce. I used what we needed for supper, and put all these jars in the freezer.

When we had pizza last week, I made extra pizza sauce and put 3 pint jars in the freezer.

Last night, when I made spaghetti sauce for supper, I made extra and put 2 quart jars  2 half pints in the freezer. The half pints will be the perfect size for me when I make myself gluten free pasta when the family is having a meal I can’t eat.

I love having all these meal helpers in the freezer ready to go.  :)

  1. Hi, I’m linking up today! I tried to add your button code, but it wouldn’t work for me. If it also doesn’t work for others, it may be due to your quotation marks all being different. I’ve had that problem before. Not sure. It might just be me. Sorry! I added a text link back to you.
