Todays Holiday Shoppe and bonus GIVEAWAY is
Off and on, my Mom used a wheat grinder and made homemade bread and sometimes pancakes. A lot of the time we ate my favorite...cracked wheat cereal in the winter! When I married and started having children I got more into using all whole grains for everything. I haven't had white flour in my pantry for over 20 years...that dosen't mean to say we don't indulge in occassional pastries and such from the bakery...but as far as my kitchen goes we mostly use white wheat for baking bread and goodies!
My favorite thing to do for my kids when they get home from school is to have a loaf of fresh baked bread and honey butter ready and waiting...not only does the house smell warm and inviting, but it is such a nutricious after school snack!
When my package came from Joseph's Grainery, I was delighted! They sent me 6 different bags of grains, lentils and flours...including their Joseph's Grainery Multigrain Pancake Mix Which I had to hide from Hubby 'til I was able to get some pictures taken! Hubby loves pancakes and waffles so it was a real treat to try their multi-grain mix...so good and hearty! Perfect for cold winter mornings with warm syrup! This is where the GIVEAWAY comes in. Joseph's Grainery is kindly offering one of my readers a chance to win 2 bags of the JG Multigrain Pancake Mix! Look for more information about entering this giveaway at the end of this post!
In their shop they sell grains, lentils, flours and kitchen ready mixes! They also have a Recipe blog which I found very helpful!
I've not had much luck with lentil recipes in the past so I was anxious to try their
PASTA WITH LENTILS ONIONS SPINACH RECIPE!
IT TURNED OUT GREAT...I TWEAKED IT A BIT AND HAD PASTA SAUCE ON THE SIDE FOR THOSE WHO WANTED IT...EITHER WAY, WITH OR WITH OUT SAUCE IT WAS DELICIOUS!
WITH THE HOLIDAYS NOW UPON US I WOULD INVITE YOU TO USE JOSEPH'S GRAINERY PRODUCTS FOR ALL YOUR HOLIDAY BAKING, SOUP'S AND HEARTWARMING MEALS!
I also found several Joseph's Grainery helpful and fun videos on YouTube!
