I am leaving for a woman's retreat this weekend, so wanted to make a few items for my family while I am away. It turned into most of the day in the food realm. I started out by cleaning out both fridges, making a grocery list and clipping coupons. I then baked bread and cookies before I headed out for two grocery stores.
Thankfully, even if everyone else has higher interests, Julia always helps in the kitchen. She is actually quite good help for a five year old.
Once I put the groceries away, I made three dinners for Thursday through Saturday.
I've always been interested in the once a month cooking that people do, but I think I'll start by cooking twice a week and making three to four meals at a time. It really didn't take much longer than the usual one and I could try for one round on the weekend and only one cooking round during the school week.
