This post is all about some great easy weeknight meals for a busy mom with a new baby!
Shelley from Franish Nonspeaker is expecting!! So a bunch of us a throwing her a "Virtual Baby Shower."
The idea is for us all to share some time saver meals or things that can easily be frozen and thawed for a quick dinner.
With all three of my pregnancies I stocked up on freezer dinners. Boy do they come in handy... casseroles soups all that great stuff can be pulled out and easily re heated by hubby! They were a life saver for me.
Instead of a freezer recipe I thought I'd share this great side easy recipe with Shelly and anyone else who just likes easy peasy!
These are SO easy to make even my 5 yr old could do it... he did in fact 3 times in the past week. We even made a cinnamon sugar version (I will blog that one later next week!)
The great thing about these bread sicks is that they are only 4 ingredients! FOUR! Great with pasta, salads, soups and so on and so forth.
Garlic Bread Sticks
Recipe adapted from King Arthur Flour
1/2 cup butter
4 cloves of garlic minced
2 1/4 cups self rising flour
2/3 cup butter milk
Preheat oven to 450.
Place butter and garlic in the bottom of a 9x13 baking dish and place in the oven until the butter is melted.
Mean while mix flour and milk together. Flatten and roll into a 10x8 rectangle (will be thin) cut 1 inch strips and place in your baking dish ontop of the melted butter and garlic.
Bake for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven and enjoy a buttery garlicy bread stick!
