In the beginning, JD adamantly only wanted two children. I thought that four would be perfect. Once we caught God's vision of putting orphans into families, our plan was multiplied by God. We are currently blessed with 12 children; five biological, six adopted and one more waiting in Ethiopia. Our first adoption was from the U.S., the next three were from Liberia, West Africa, and our last two were from Ethiopia. We are supporting our 12th child in Ethiopia after her adoption could not pass court.

Day in the Kitchen

 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.

  1. I love to cook one/week for my family. It saves time and dirty dishes too!
