Food Storage Meals & Menu Planning - Lunch: Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches and More St. Patrick's Day Fun!

Today's Lunch Menu:
Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches
To make this recipe, you will need:
1 Jar of Bottled Chicken - Drained
(Fresh chicken works too.)
Broiled Steak Seasoning
Real Bacon Crumbles or Yoders' Bacon
Homemade Ranch Dressing
(Bottled dressing works too.)
We included our favorite Ranch Dressing Recipes.
Lettuce, Purple Onion, Avacado, or
Tomatoes can be added.
French Bread
 (This is my sister Sheri's recipe . . . Amazing!)
Freeze Dried Mozzarella Cheese
(Fresh Provolone Cheese works too.)
We will be teaching a Cheese Making Class this Summer.
It's not as hard as you think it might be, and
it only takes about 30 minutes!
Here's the Recipe Packet:
Here are a few tips for making French Bread:
Add the first five ingredients in the recipe
and let yeast proof.

Saf-Instant Yeast works the best!
Cover and let yeast proof.
This is what it should look like when it's done.
Add 4 cups of Flour and 1 Tbsp. Salt and mix.
I use Western Family Bread Flour.
(It will be on sale at Macey's soon!)
Switch out the beaters.
Switch to the dough hook.
Cover and let dough rise again.
Add remaining 3 1/2 cups of flour.
This will make a firm dough.
Mix and allow the dough to rest for 15 minutes.
Dough will pull away from the sides of the bowl.
Dough will have doubled in size. 
Mix for 5 minutes.
Oil surface area and divide the dough in half.
Form the dough into long loaves.
Cut slits into the top and brush with egg white wash.
Place loaves onto greased cookie sheet,
and let rise until doubled in size.
Bake for 30 minutes at 375 degrees.
Butter the tops and ENJOY!
St. Patrick's Day Game:
"I Spy the LUCKY Guy"
Hide & Seek
Hide LUCKY in the Yard or in the House
and let the Family go on a Hunt.
The first person to find LUCKY Wins!
The game can be played over and over.
It's like playing Hide and Seek
with a picture instead of people!
Here's the PDF:
Print on white cardstock.
Cut and Laminate.
I made two copies:
One for inside, which I just cut and laminated.
The 2nd for outside, which I cut, laminated and attached
to a paint stir stick so that I could stick it into the ground.
I also made a smaller set to make it a little bit
more of a challenge for the older kids.
I used popsicle sticks for the smaller ones.
This is a great game to play
with the GRANDKIDS as well!
