Somehow, on Sunday, we managed to run out of all of the snacks at the same time.  We spent most of Sunday moving furniture back into the living room,cleaning, and then watching a late afternoon football game so I designated Monday as my “Fooding” day.  Thankfully meals were covered and we had my delicious “medieval pork” and roasted root vegetables for dinner on Sunday with plenty of leftovers.  “Medieval pork” is simply pork slow roasted with dried fruit, cinnamon and nutmeg.  It really is delicious especially if you have it with a tankard of ale (kidding).

So Monday was my fooding day.  I started early with milk heating on the stove for yogurt, then granola bars in the food processor.  Those seem to get eaten quickly so I made a double batch.  Then it was apple sauce muffins and bread dough soaking.  In between, of course, was children, laundry catch-up, grocery shopping and a thousand other bits, but fooding was the main focus.  The day ended with fresh baked bread and an apple crisp.  My fridge and pantry are now full, good day.

    • I use this recipe from the Minimalist Baker with a few adjustments:

      -I use seeds instead of almonds. Pumpkin, sunflower, hemp, and/or chia seeds.
      -I found I have to soak the dates in hot water so they blend properly. After soaking for awhile I toss them in the food processor with 1/2 cup of oats, this keeps them from turning completely to glue.
      -I don’t toast anything, I just don’t have the time.
      -Sometimes I toss dark chocolate chips in them because…chocolate.

      They are super yummy. Mostly it’s the children that eat them, but I occasionally sneak one too!
