Well, the kiddies are back in school again. We're tyring to get back into a routine. My favorite part of the school routine is me exclaiming everyday when I look in their backpacks "How many trees did they kill to send all this crap home today?!" Seriously. They send a lot of papers home. Daily. I have been known to get tired of looking through it and throwing away things that I wasn't supposed to. Shocking, I know.
Back to school means quick meals, and not much is quicker than spaghetti. And the kids would both rather have spaghetti than just about anything else. But we needed something to go with it that didn't involve me having to go inside a store.
So I cruised around the blog-o-sphere and found the recipe for these breadsticks at Real Mom Kitchen. They looked easy enough so I gave them a go.
I had to make a substitution because I didn't have any powdered milk. Instead I used 1/4 cup regular milk. Which of course made the dough a little wetter, so I just added more flour till if felt right. I also used a combo of regular flour and whole wheat flour. See, they're good for you!
I put mine in a regular cake pan, but it might be better to use a sheet-type pan to get flatter breadstickier shaped breadsticks. I think it might be good to put some garlic salt right in the dough for more flavor through out. Click on the Real Mom Kitchen link above for the whole recipe.
Here's the back to school boy. I really don't know why he's frowning at me like that.
And the back to school girl.
