This is going to be especially important for me to do right now with all four boys being involved in our home school musical in April. Plus spring soccer season is just about to come into my life at full force. Meal times are likely to be rushed many nights this month as we head out to practices, games and rehearsals.
Therefore, I must be organized. I must plan ahead. I must put some ready to grab food in the freezer. I must not panic.
Ugh, but I must make four animal costumes in the next 3 weeks.
Okay, I can do this. I have a plan (for the cooking, not for the costumes). Do you want to hear about it?
Each day this week, I’ll be making a little extra food to freeze. By the end of the week, I should have all kinds of food in the freezer to keep me from panicking while I attach black spots to white sweat pants so that I can make my eight year old look like a dalmatian puppy.
Here’s what I’ll be working on:
Corn Dog Muffins x 2
Sloppy Joes x 3
Here’s what I need to do to prep:
- Soak oats/flour for breakfast cookies
- Soak dough for apple pies and pizza pockets
- Soak beans for burritos
- Make whole wheat tortillas for burritos
- Thaw five pounds of ground beef for enchilada bake and sloppy joes
- Thaw/grate cheese for burritos and pizza pockets
In addition, I’d like to also prepare the following to simplify my life:
I’ll post the results of my efforts (again, for the cooking, not the costumes) at the end of the week!
