Using up the leaven

Breakfast grain muffins

We're getting ready for Passover this weekend. Yehoshua's birthday falls on Passover this year, so it's even more exciting for him! I am going to make an unleavened chocolate cake for him, which I will write about after it's done. ;)

But anyway, all week we've been trying to use up our foods with leaven. I made several batches of breakfast grain muffins to use up the bags of "mixes" I had made for these. We've been enjoying the muffins, as they're hearty and healthy (though crumbly!) and tasty. :)

We've also eaten pizza twice in the past week. I make two 16-inch pizzas each time we have pizza, and send leftovers in Joshua's lunch. We tend to eat pizza once a week and will really miss it during the week of unleavened bread! I haven't figured out how to make a good unleavened pizza yet, though I have tried. ;)


Hey Tammy...

Have you ever tried a spaghetti pizza? It's fun and good. You take cold spaghetti and mix it with an egg white (or whole egg) that's been beaten with a tablespoon of olive oil. Then you put the spaghetti into greased pie pans, pressing it out to make a nice even layer. It helps to go up the sides of the dish too. Then you layer on the same stuff you would put on your pizza. Sauce, cheese, meats, veggies. Put into a 350* oven for about 15 minutes and it's ready. Loosen it with a spatula, and slide it out to a cutting board. Let it stand 5 minuets and then use a pizza cutter to cut it into wedges and serve with a salad and garlic bread. We make this a lot after we have leftover spaghetti at church. The kids love it. It's different and easy.


I have a recipe for pizza using no leaven here:

We love it!!
