Well, it’s been a while since I posted. The photos that I have here were taken several weeks ago as I prepared fast food for some of my family that was going to be left behind while I took a small mini-vacation back East. Going away, even for a week, takes time and planning for the mother of the family. You don’t just take off!
I purchased around 15 of these cheap tins to make pizzas on, to be frozen for the kids to pop in the oven while I was away. Each tin cost $1. at the local Dollar Store. What I do is make up the ciabatta dough posted in the kitchen section but add more flour so that it will be easier to work with. Simply grease the sheets with bacon grease, lard or olive oil. Push out the dough and then place all the toppings you like on top. In this case, I used my own tomatoes that were still growing, pepperoni, sweet onions, oregano, garlic powder, parmesan cheese, a drizzle of olive oil and my own mozzarella cheese.
It took less than a half hour to push these out and wrap in Saran for freezing. All you have to do it pre heat the oven to 450 degrees and bake on the bottom rack for something like 12 min. or so. It depends on the individual oven. These are great to have on hand at all times when you are running late and have not prepared a meal in advance. There are at least 4 on hand at all times in my freezer. Give it a try.
I never did get the above posted and now over a week later I find myself preparing even more frozen pizza for our deer hunting party which starts tomorrow:)) We are all pretty excited and since I plan on going I will need to have plenty of fast food ready. So not only will we be making pizza’s today but also pasta sauce, chili and biscuits. There will also be a huge pail of Caleb’s home-grown popcorn with our butter and lots of peanuts. That will take us through the weekend and the hunting goes for 9 days.
Over the last few weeks we have been wintering the farm and pulling up our gardens to feed to the hogs. And now, a week later than the previous sentence………..I think I better make this outdated post. I have a bunch of material to post but no time. We are in deer hunting season and so are baking and cooking enough food for the rest of the week and long weekend. Today it is cookies, apple pies, lasagna and eggplant parmesan for starters! So far we have only shot three deer but it sure is not for the lack of effort. We have trudged some very difficult areas, putting on miles per day. But, oh the fun, even having seen a couple of wolves. Between getting ready for winter, school and daily family life there is not much time left for this computer:) Stay tuned; I’ll be back and with more photos too. God bless everyone!
