Many people assume that since I love to cook and since I focus on feeding my family healthy food, I must spend hours and hours in the kitchen. Quite the opposite. Sometimes days go by and I’ve barely found time to pull out a freezer meal and throw down some vegetables. (That’s okay though – that’s what the freezer meals are for!)
As I talked about in the Let’s Do This! eCourse, I have to grab any spare moment I have to try to get ahead in the kitchen. Working ahead is the only way I’m able to keep up with all these big appetites and our full schedules.
After several weeks of barely keeping up because of basketball game travel, colds and flu we’ve been passing around, and just life in general – I finally found some time this morning to get a few extra recipes whipped up. Wow, that felt good!
I got out my cookbook (so handy to flip open and use quickly instead of running back and forth to the computer) and made two batches of Whole Wheat Quick Mix. I made a double batch of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie dough balls for the freezer. I made two batches of Homemade Instant Oatmeal. I made a big mess. I cleaned it up. The short time it took to make these simple recipes will save me a lot of time during the next couple of weeks.
Hooray for time in the kitchen! It’s therapeutic for me and productive too. :)
